Evergreen provides opportunities for its students to participate in organized sporting events. We believe that fitness is importance and want our students be physically active.
We want both, students who have never participated in organized sports or students who have been involved in organized sports, to have a place to learn athletic skills, to build leadership, to gain confidence, and to have fun.
Our students take pride in their teams and work to continue a reputation of hardworking athletes that bring smiles to the faces of their fans and spectators. Wolfpack sports are available to middle school students and the teams are co-ed.
Evergreen Community Charter School, Rainbow Mountain School, Odyssey Community School, The New Classical Academy and Francine Delany New School for Children have created what we call the Hospitality League
. All five of our schools are committed to giving our athletes a positive experience where middle school students get to participate in co-ed sports.
In 2009 we welcomed The Learning Community and ArtSpace Charter School to our league.
During any game, a spectator would see that all students get to play and everyone at the event display positive, caring attitudes to each other. All five teams participate in flag football, basketball, and soccer.
In addition, Evergreen offers Wolfpack Volleyball for middle school, however we are eagerly seeking teams to play and a coach.
In the K-5 athletic world, many students are involved in ABYSA soccer and move on to play HFC. Our Evergreen field normally holds practice for these teams, but this year we are renovating our field. Next year we welcome back seven teams for recreation soccer through ABYSA. There are also clubs offered through EverAfter that practice sports. For a more complete list, please see the Spring 2012 Club Sheet
Traditionally, Social Studies teacher Tony Mele coaches flag-football, Science Teacher Stuart Miles coaches basketball, and EverAfter instructor James Wilson coaches soccer. Assistant coaches are Jamal Jabali, Patrick Dillingham, and George Morrison.
Our staff challenges the students every year to staff vs. student sports for each season, and consequently deflated adult egos and injuries ensue.
