    Athletics Insider's Look

    Join Shipley's Athletic Department for an interactive experience with the leaders and coaches of our inclusive and successful athletic program. Shipley’s strong athletics program begins with an innovative and foundation-building physical education program in pre-kindergarten. Students build on those foundational skills and get their first taste of interscholastic competition starting in sixth grade. In our Upper School, there are opportunities for each and every student to participate in our championship-caliber varsity and non-competitive programs, where good sportsmanship is just as important as winning. 
     
    Please join us at Shipley on Monday, December 19, 2022 at 2:30 pm to see all that Shipley's Athletics program has to offer!
