Swim Team 2019


Athletics ShieldAt SAS, we believe that being part of a team is a uniquely valuable learning experience. That's why we encourage all students to participate in interscholastic athletics, and most do! SAS teams include state-bound elite athletes and the student who is interested in experiencing a new sport for the first time.

Interested in getting off the bench at SAS? Contact us today to schedule a visit or conversation with an SAS coach.

In 2020-2021, 75% of Upper School students participated in at least one sport.

I wanted to brag on your ladies soccer team! What beautiful mature fun-loving women you have representing your school! ... I was so impressed with your girls' positive attitudes! I asked my daughter after the game if the players were nice and she said, "Oh momma yes! They were so fun!" She said that the goalie had even complimented one of our girls that scored saying, "I can’t even be mad about that; your goal was beautiful!" So many times I have not enjoyed the games because the fans get so intense. Your girls were after my heart in that they seem to be having fun playing a game! ... In all the years of watching my children playing sports I have never been so impressed with a team as I was your ladies soccer team last night! Congratulations!
