Athletics & Fitness

The mission of the Public Schools Athletic League is to provide opportunities for educating students in physical fitness, character development and socialization skills through an athletic program that fosters teamwork, discipline and sportsmanship.
The goal of the CHAMPS Middle School Sports & Fitness program is to improve student fitness levels and overall health by increasing opportunities for children to engage in physical activity, regardless of athletic ability. The program promotes health-related fitness through a mix of several after-school and before-school activities including traditional sports, non-traditional sports, and fitness activities. The ultimate goal is for students to grow to be CHAMPS — Cooperative, Healthy, Active, Motivated, Positive Students — for life.
The Charter School Athletic Association (CSAA) is a 501c3 non- profit organization supporting New York City charter schools. Through community and school partnerships, the CSAA works with New York City charter schools to develop and maintain inter-scholastic sports leagues and arts programs. By nurturing charter school students’ appreciation for the arts, sports, physical fitness, and nutrition the CSAA gives these students access to high quality programing committed to the values of cooperation, fairness, and respect.
A Word from our Physical Education Instructor...

 The physical education program encourages children to explore, pretend and develop movement moods and emotions while integrating basic skills and fitness.  Activities are geared to the children's varying levels of ability creating a positive self-image and an enthusiasm for physical fitness and activities while learning to play together cooperatively.  Our special programs include: a fifth/sixth grade intramural basketball team, International Festival, Hoops for Heart, jump/jog-a-thons, President's Physical Fitness test, and the fitnessgram, called Physical Best program (which charts your abilities in relation to your age, height and weight).  The gymnasium is the place to be!
