Foote's athletics program gives every student in grades 6—9 the chance to play on an interscholastic team. Sports are optional but around 75 percent of Middle School students participate in at least one sport. Several sports have both varsity and junior varsity teams. Our program stresses sportsmanship, skill building, perseverance, self confidence and teamwork. Our focus is on participation and cooperation; all team members have regular opportunities for playing time.
Foote School has had a field hockey team since at least the early 1930s, decades before Title IX mandated that schools open athletic programs to girls. Today, Foote’s field hockey team is co-ed.
