Middle School Athletics

Our Middle School athletics program emphasizes skills development in preparation for high school varsity competition. We develop strengths and work on weaknesses while building a better understanding of the game. Our middle school teams compete in the NEPSAC as well as with other private schools and Deaf schools. We compete in the Eastern Deaf Middle School tournament, winning three consecutive championships from 2017-2019.
