Athletics for the 2022-2023 School Year
As the athletics program at The Benjamin School is considered an integral part of the overall school curriculum, participation in at least one sport each year fulfills the state physical education requirement and therefore attendance is mandatory.  Students may not miss more than 10% of practices and games combined to fulfill this requirement.   

Students wishing to satisfy the physical education credit through participation in a sport that the Middle School does not offer must submit this request to the Athletic Director by October 1st.    

Students sign up for sports in the Middle School Office two-three weeks before the season begins.  

Careful consideration needs to be taken when a student is choosing a sport, as most teams will have a limited number of participants. Because of the restricted number of coaches, safety concerns, and field space, the following guidelines will be used regarding participants in each sport:
