Our interscholastic athletics program is an essential part of our students’ educational experience.
Offering a wide range of individual and team sports, the Flint Hill athletics program is value-driven and student-centered. We’re winners because we play as a team, we encourage each and every player on and off the field, and we value sportsmanship over individual stardom. We believe that no race is ever won until we all pull the sled across the finish line together. That’s the Husky way.

The Flint Hill interscholastic athletic program is an essential part of the educational experience in line with the School’s mission, core values, and philosophy. Our athletic program aims to offer an educational, challenging, and rewarding experience that develops the interpersonal values and athletic potential of all our student-athletes.
We believe that athletics and physical activity provide an enlightening and powerful learning experience for our students, among that, a pursuit of success in which the most enriching and critical lifelong lessons occur. Given the strong connection between social, emotional, and physical health and athletic participation, all students are encouraged to take advantage of Flint Hill’s many athletic offerings during their time in Middle and Upper School.
All Lower School students take physical education. Middle School students have an athletic block within their school day, and they can choose which sports they’d like to participate in, within each of three seasons throughout the school year.
Upper School students must earn four activity credits to graduate. Two of these credits must be earned by participating on an athletic team or through approved participation in other team-building options, such as robotics, the school newspaper, music, or drama. Two credits must be earned through athletics, while the remaining two can be earned through athletics or in the other areas. See the full Upper School Program Guide for all options.
In the Upper School, the majority of our athletic teams are organized according to ability. Students with the requisite skills, experience, commitment, character, and qualities pertinent to the culture of the program will have the opportunity to compete at the Varsity and Junior Varsity levels. Through intentional coaching in practices and contests, one of our primary goals is to field highly competitive teams whose athletes display experience in skill, discipline, teamwork, sportsmanship, and coachability.
A total of 22 sports are offered over three seasons: Fall, Winter, and Spring. Each season offers different sports and teams. Head to our Athletics page for more information.
In Middle School sports, we don’t expect students to have experience, and no one is cut from the team. Junior Varsity is the next step, and while these teams are more competitive, experience is beneficial but not necessary. At the Varsity level, players are developing high-level skills and advanced strategy, which means participation is based on the player’s athletic skills and attitude.
After middle school, we cannot guarantee playing time. Playing time at the Junior Varsity and Varsity levels is based on the student’s commitment, experience, and skill development.
Students do not have to purchase uniforms for athletics. General athletic equipment is provided by the school, but families may be required to purchase some sport-specific equipment.
Middle School includes athletics within its daily schedule. Upper School athletic practices begin each day at 3:45 p.m.
