Athletics Philosophy

Synapse Athletics is committed to embodying our broader values by promoting the social, emotional and physical benefits of team sports. Our program offers students the opportunity to develop their emotional intelligence (EQ) skills, with a focus on building a healthy mind and body, self-regulation, relationship building, leadership, conflict resolution and preparing students for high school athletics.

Our Middle School teams compete in the Small Schools Intermediate League. All students are encouraged to join our no-cut sports teams throughout the school year.

Physical education

At Synapse, we believe students should start every day with physical activity. Even our lessons & projects start with HEAT, using movement to activate memory and build community. Each level has a longer afternoon PE block two to three times per week.

Middle School Sports

Our sports are focused on practicing fundamental skill building, practicing together as a team and fun community building. 

All practices take place during the school day. Games and meets are 1-2x week after school.
