Athletics at CESJDS

Creating a competitive and inclusive environment to instill a life-long love of athletics

The CESJDS athletic program prides itself on providing an athletic arena for all levels of athletes to compete and grow. We offer athletic programming to all of our upper school students (6th-12th) with an opportunity to compete in the Potomac Valley Athletic Conference. The goal of our athletic program is to create life-long lovers of fitness and sport as well as to ensure our athletes learn valuable life-lessons regarding teamwork, competition, and communication. 

At the Middle School Level, we offer practice teams in addition to competitive teams to ensure that all athletes receive opportunities to participate and develop, regardless of skill level. Our competitive teams participate in league tournaments with the opportunity to win championship banners.  

At the High School level, our teams focus more on competition, as well as skill development and teamwork. Our varsity and junior varsity teams compete for championship banners that we proudly display in our gymnasium.

Athletic Facilities

Our Upper School campus includes the Daniel Pearl Memorial Gymnasium, four tennis courts, two soccer fields (for Middle and High School use), a softball field, a baseball field, a weight room, and an Athletic Training room. The Lower School campus includes two full gymnasiums, and a wrestling room.
