Lower and Middle School Athletics
The Lower and Middle School program focuses on developing the individual as a whole. The Shaker Heights campus includes fields for soccer, football, and baseball as well as tennis courts, a pool, a 400-meter track, and other facilities. We are especially concerned with developing skills that can be used for a lifetime of activities. The University School intramural program is an after school athletic activity for grades 3–6. The program offers sport-specific instruction through age appropriate drills and games. All boys are able to participate regardless of ability or experience. We encourage all boys to demonstrate leadership, learn new skills, and refine existing skills while having an opportunity to interact with their classmates on the athletic fields. The program’s objective is to be an enjoyable, educational experience for all. For the seventh and eighth grades, there are “A” and “B” teams in several sports in order to accommodate every boy’s desire to play, and provide him with healthy competition congruent with his ability.
