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.
At Barnstable, we take a different kind of approach to physical education. Each trimester, students select a Physical Education-related activity that meets their needs and interests. Most of the electives can turn into lifelong pursuits. Electives meet for double time periods in the afternoon, twice per week.
Physical Education electives offered include:
Nautilus and Aerobic Training, Bowling, Martial Arts, Golf, Roller Skating, Tennis, Volleyball, Recreation, Soccer, Basketball, Hiking, Flag Football
Barnstable Academy is a member of the Tri-State Independent School League, which gives students valuable experience in team play. League competition includes soccer, basketball, skiing, tennis, and baseball. Annual MVP awards are given in all of the team sports, and one student is chosen each year for the Barnstable Hall of Fame.
Varsity Basketball, Cheerleading, Ski Club
Varsity Baseball, Varsity Softball
Barnstable students are also encouraged to participate in individual sports, which they can pursue the rest of their lives.
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.
