Upper School Athletics
Freshman and Sophomore years: One season of participation on an athletic team, an after-school activity, or managing a school team is required.
Junior and Senior years: Two seasons of participation on an athletic team, after-school activity, or managing a school team is required.
Levels of Participation
Varsity teams are comprised of very skilled and dedicated athletes who wish to compete at a high level of competition. Varsity teams emphasize a significant level of fitness, skill, and commitment, along with a focus on individual improvement and teamwork. Many varsity participants regularly train out-of-season and play both inside and outside of school. While winning is not the primary goal, Bryn Mawr aspires to have competitive teams at the varsity level. Playing time at the varsity level is not guaranteed.
Junior Varsity teams focus on improving basic skills, while teaching increasingly sophisticated game strategies and techniques. Good sportsmanship, teamwork, and a high fitness level are also emphasized. It is our goal for all players to have playing time; however, in games of close competition, some girls may not play. While JV athletics is a primary source for Bryn Mawr's varsity teams, a JV player (including seniors), will not necessarily move to the varsity level of competition.

In order to participate on a team, a student must be present for all of the try-out period. Exceptions are only made when the coach is notified well in advance and there is room on the roster for additional team members.
Upper School Tryout Periods
- Fall sports begin on August 19, 2013
- Winter sports begin on November 6, 2013
- Spring sports begin on February 18, 2014
Middle School Athletics
All Middle School students are required to join two teams during both seventh and eighth grades. "Squads" is the term used to refer to seventh period offerings. Girls on every team will have as much equal playing time as the substitution rules and speed of play allow, assuming that they attend all practices and maintain a positive attitude. We do make necessary exceptions with the positions of goalie, pitcher, and catcher, as these positions require very specific training demands, experience, and skills.
