Athletics at Sidwell Friends

Being at Sidwell has helped me become more active because I got to try out many sports, and when I finally got to choose one I really enjoyed it. … It’s not just exercising and getting fit—it’s learning to be on a team, which is really important even with group work in the classroom. Being on a sports team helps me use those skills and apply it to the classroom. – 8th Grade Student
