In Upper School (Grades 6-9), students have the opportunity to put on a Pike jersey and represent the school as part of Pike Athletics
The Pike School Athletics program is committed to promoting an appreciation for lifelong wellness, fostering growth in leadership, teaching the importance of responsibility and commitment, and enhancing the overall experience for our students. The guiding principle behind Pike’s athletics is our belief in its educational value for our students. Athletic participation helps our students grow, learn, and enjoy themselves while they use and develop their personal, physical, and intellectual skills.
Pike values the lessons that have long been taught by athletic participation: the pursuit of excellence through personal development and teamwork, ethical and responsible behavior on the field and off, adherence to the spirit of rules, leadership and strength of character, and sportsmanship – respect for one’s opponents, acceptance of victory with humility, and acknowledgement of defeat with grace. In teaching these lessons to its students, Pike instills habits, which will lead students to better and healthier lives. While winning is not an end in itself, we believe that the efforts by our athletes to be their best will lead them to succeed in the future. Through this participation, our students will emerge well rounded with the skill, knowledge, and abilities to maintain active lifelong learning in order to help them be successful in life's journey.
Our sports program offers a variety of different sports each season. The sports that are listed below are traditionally offered each year. We have different team levels (Varsity, JV, and Intramural) depending on the number of students who sign up to participate. Our coaching staff is made up of Pike Faculty who enjoy coaching and teaching the valuable lessons of what it takes to be a part of a team.
