Middle School Athletics

At Annie Wright, we believe it is important for the physical, mental and emotional development of Middle School students to participate in physical activity. Our exceptional teachers and coaches encourage participation and fun through a range of options, a no-cut philosophy and four seasons of athletic offerings.
Annie Wright is a founding member of the Middle Nisqually League for sport competitions that closely mirrors our Upper School programming. Continuity between the Middle School and the Upper Schools is a foundation to developing high-caliber student-athletes. Middle School programs focus on the skills and philosophies necessary to excel in Middle School sports and assist in the transition into our Upper Schools varsity programs. To support this transition, many Upper School varsity coaches either coach or train with our Middle School athletes.

In addition to optional athletics offerings, Middle School students have a mandatory 100 minutes of Physical and Health Education class per week. These classes focus on health, general fitness and nutrition, with 25% classroom-based work, and 75% focuses on physical movement. See the Middle School academic pages to learn more.
