Athletics Program

Barnstable Academy’s Athletics Program offers sports training in basketball, soccer, skiing, tennis, baseball, softball, and cheerleading as well as physical education in aerobic training, bowling, martial arts, golf, hiking, and more as a two-day afternoon elective.


  • We strive to make each student’s participation in sports a safe, positive, healthy, and enjoyable one.

  • We provide opportunities for student athletes to grow as individuals.

Interscholastic Athletics

While there are many opportunities to participate in sports within the afternoon elective program, the interscholastic athletic program gives students a chance to compete at a higher level.

Beginning in 8th grade, Barnstable students compete in soccer, basketball, softball, baseball, and cheerleading. Under the guidance of our knowledgeable coaching staff, team practices are conducted during the afternoon elective program, four days per week.

Games are typically scheduled after school, at 4pm.

Our annual Sports Awards dinner and banquet completes the athletic year. Student athletes are recognized for their accomplishments both on and off the field.

Over the years, Barnstable Academy has won league championships in several sports. We also have a proud tradition of graduates who have gone on to compete at the collegiate level.
