Physical Education

pe 7 and 8

In grades seven and eight, physical education classes are single-sex and each of the following sports and activities is taught for four weeks on a rotating schedule: soccer, volleyball, team handball, aerobics, basketball, agility, strength, floor hockey, gymnastics, and wiffle-ball. More advanced skills are taught to this age group. Although competitive games are played, emphasis is placed on technique, rules, teamwork, and self-improvement.

Beginning in sixth grade, students may join sports teams as an after-school program. Try-outs are not held, and all students are encouraged to participate, regardless of skill level or previous experience. The Rudolf Steiner School is a member of the Independent Schools Athletic League. Our teams compete against teams from independent schools of a similar size. Interscholastic sports include soccer, volleyball, basketball, softball, and track.
