Competitive and Non-Competitive Sports
The Middle School athletic program at Lincoln School offers a blend of competitive and non-competitive sports. Middle School sports are as much about participating as they are about learning basic skills.
We encourage each student to try a new sport and we give every student the opportunity to participate at some level.
Below is a listing of the seven sport offerings available to the Middle School student at Lincoln School. The number of teams and level of competition for each sport will depend on the number of participants. Prior to the start of each season sign-up sheets are posted to allow students to choose the sport in which they would like to participate.
Middle School Sport Offerings:
|Soccer (5-8)||Basketball||Lacrosse (5-8)|
|Field Hockey (5-8)||Swimming||Tennis|
The Middle School field hockey, soccer, basketball, and lacrosse interscholastic teams play both an A&B team schedule and participate in a small A team round-robin tournament at the conclusion of the season.
Teams that play an A&B schedule usually play games back to back, which on game days make for a longer time commitment. Interscholastic teams will be selected according to ability and playing experience.
Swimming is the only sport in our Upper School athletic program that also includes Middle School students. The Middle School girls who participate in this program practice four days a week and compete and train with our Upper School athletes. A sport fee is assessed for this choice.
Lincoln offers both instructional and competitive tennis in the spring and includes skill development and intramural challenge matches for both singles and doubles play. Those players skilled to compete will have matches against local schools, usually a co-ed team.
