Team Sports

Empowering Leaders On and Off the Field. We emphasize the balance between individual achievement and teamwork, the grace to win, and the honor to lose.

We invite all students in Grades 6 through 8 to join our athletics program and experience the benefits of participating in team sports. Respecting leaders and having the courage to lead are integral parts of our program that build both a strong body and a strong character. 

At Far Hills, we believe team sports offer more than just physical activity; they cultivate leadership, teamwork, and resilience. Our program emphasizes skill development in a supportive environment, fostering friendships and healthy competition.

Athletic Programs Offered

Each student in Grades 6 through 8 is required to participate in athletics, and we encourage students to try something new, such as a new sport each season. Stepping out of your comfort zone and trying something new is a valuable experience. It allows you to discover new interests and talents that you may not have known you had.

By exploring different sports, you might uncover a new passion, build confidence, and learn more about yourself. We encourage students to take these chances, as it can lead to personal growth and a greater appreciation for a wide range of activities.
