Meadows Athletics

Building Courage, Teamwork, and a Competitive Edge

At The Meadows, athletics and physical education form essential elements of our Beginning School through grade 12 curriculum. We intentionally design these programs to meet students where they are today, then help them build the stamina, technical ability, confidence, and leadership to compete at high levels—and thoroughly enjoy the game.
It is the mission of the athletic department to cultivate a culture of excellence and integrity in all aspects of interscholastic competition and to reinforce and expand lessons taught in the classroom.
In Beginning School, PE lessons ensure your child develops coordination, sportsmanship, and lifelong beneficial habits. The Lower School program builds on these basics, fostering physical strength and increasingly complex technical skills along with resilience, self-awareness, and a healthy competitive spirit.
In Middle School, your child can deepen current skills or discover new passions by joining competitive athletic teams, such as volleyball, flag football, and cross country. Our Upper School fields a full range of junior varsity and varsity teams, including football, baseball, basketball, bowling, volleyball, tennis, and more. The Meadows School has won over 50 state championships, and numerous student-athletes have gone on to compete at the college level.
Equally strong in body, mind, and character, our student-athletes vividly represent the definition of excellence at The Meadows. We welcome you to cheer on the Mustangs at an upcoming game!
