Athletics Department

At EARJ, the Athletics and Activities program includes all the athletic sports, the academic traveling teams and the After School Activities Program for Lower School and Upper School.

We aim to provide the opportunity to construct the knowledge and skills to move with competence and confidence in a variety of activities. Through our extensive co-curricular and community projects, we help students make informed decisions, promote healthy choices, develop potential, inspire creative expression, stimulate innovation, and forge leadership ability. All with a strong sense of commitment.

Welcome to the home of the Panthers!

The demands of the athletic setting at EARJ require students to be multi-dimensional communicators, critical thinkers, and responsive individuals. Student-athletes develop problem-solving, decision-making, and leadership skills, along with a sense of sportsmanship and fair play while working cooperatively with others.

EARJ aims to provide to community members a sports program that will develop a lifelong involvement in physical activity. The EARJ Panthers represent our community in a number of competitions and our team play is marked by fair play and mutual respect. All students are welcome to try out for the teams, however a group of students is selected to travel and represent the school in competitive events. Practices occur before and after school on a 2-3 times a week basis. Sports offered are: basketball, volleyball, indoor soccer, field soccer, running, gymnastics, cheerleading and softball. 

The EARJ Panthers have a tradition of excelling in highly competitive interscholastic events.
