Athletics at Wye River
“...exercise is as effective as certain medications for treating anxiety and depression.” -John J. Ratey

Because athletic activities play an important part in a student's full development and growth, we emphasize teamwork and personal improvement in all of our sports. Because we value athletics so much for all students, we have a “no cut” policy for our teams so all students have the opportunity to play a competitive sport, whereas, in other school settings, they may not get the chance. Regardless of a student’s past athletic experience, there is a climate of support and encouragement, all the while striving for improved skills and excellence. Experienced athletes mentor students who are new to a sport. Many of our students never imagined they could compete athletically, let alone be genuinely encouraged by a team of friends. Hard work and determination enable all of our student-athletes to reach new heights.
Non-competitive offerings, such as Martial Arts and Field & Court Sports, are rotated in from year to year based on student interest. We offer competitive athletic options for our students as well.
