Sports

As one of the four pillars at Seattle Academy, athletics are an integral part of the total school program and student experience. Providing invaluable experiences beyond the classroom, athletics creates community while contributing to the personal growth and education of our students. Lifelong lessons are learned through athletics such as sportsmanship, teamwork, the benefits of hard work, and gracefully navigating both winning and losing. Seattle Academy Athletics provides experiences for a wide range of abilities and talents, with a participation based, no-cut policy. This emphasis on both participation and excellence, along with an impressive variety of sports offered each season, provides a wide range of opportunities and competitive levels in both the Middle and Upper School programs.

Seattle Academy Athletics is a skill-based program that takes into account developmental and social needs of the individual and group as we make team placements. The SAAS Athletic Department carefully evaluates players who turn-out at the start of each sports season to create the best overall experience for athletes. At Seattle Academy we have “turnouts” instead of “tryouts” since no students are cut in the process; everyone is placed on a team.
