OUR PHILOSOPHY OF ATHLETICS
Athletics at Banning Lewis Academy are considered an integral part of a student’s educational experience. The goals of the program are to give all students the opportunity to:
- Develop skills and knowledge of game strategies and rules
- Collaborate and compete with others
- Compete with a positive attitude towards themselves and others
Participation in athletic programs contributes to good sportsmanship, teamwork, character building, physical development, coordination, and interest in sports. Interscholastic sports competition exemplifies the value of discipline, hard work,fair play and being a team player.
It is a privilege to participate in interscholastic athletics; therefore greater expectations exist for those who represent Banning Lewis Academy, within their respective sports programs. Our staff wants to encourage all students to participate in athletics at Banning Lewis Academy.
We have moved to a different format for middle school participation. 6th, 7th, and 8th graders can participate in every sport offered, however academic eligibility has changed. To be academically eligible, they must have a passing grade in all classes. A fee of $55 exists for all sports except for football which is $85.:
