About Our Program

The purpose of the athletic program at Brentwood Academy is to foster physical development and athletic skills while teaching the value of personal discipline, character, commitment, and the subordination of self-interest to the higher goal of team achievement.

All students are expected to participate in some type of organized physical activity at the school each day, unless exception is made by the athletic director.

While it is not the intent of the school to dictate each sport or activity in which a student engages, the staff, through its expertise, is charged with the responsibility of providing guidance and encouragement to students in selecting the area which best fulfills the individual’s God-given talents.

These are the goals for student participation in the athletic program:
  • To challenge the student to learn what it means to do one’s best.
  • To teach self-discipline and humility, qualities which come from learning to function effectively within the framework of the rules and which benefit the team, the school, and most importantly, the individual.
  • To teach the meaning and value of personal commitment, a trait we would like to develop in every student. Success in athletics nearly always involves teamwork and self-sacrifice.

These concepts are the cornerstone for building and developing conscientious, reliable citizens for the future. To this end, Brentwood Academy is committed.

Physical Education General Policies
All Brentwood Academy students are expected to participate in some form of athletics or physical activity every school day. Any exemption must be approved by the athletic director. The school encourages its students to participate in sports that are offered in season rather than specializing in one sport for the entire year. Transcript credit is one credit per year regardless of the athletic/physical activity. Any students who fail physical education must attend summer school to fulfill their requirement. Students will not be re-admitted to BA until all P.E. requirements have been met.

Middle school athletics/physical activities are held during the school day. All upper school team sports will be held following the school day. All physical education classes will be held during the school day. Athletic and physical education grades are based, in part, on attendance, attitude, and participation.

During vacation periods, Christmas and spring break, the school encourages students to be with their families; however, some practices and contests are scheduled during these times. Participation should be worked out with the family and coach.

No athletic team or team member may miss any class due to a particular sport without the written permission of the school director and athletic director.

All overnight trips for athletic teams or team members must have prior approval of the athletic director.

If a student athlete receives an injury during participation, he or she should report this to the coach. Dr. Scott Arthur of the Bone and Joint Clinic is the team doctor. Parents are responsible for the cost of treatment; therefore, please consult your medical plan regarding insurance coverage. If any other physician treats an athlete, this should be communicated to the coach involved.

Team Sports
It is the policy at Brentwood Academy that once a student begins a team sport, he or she is committed to the team for the entire season. Withdrawal from the team prior to the end of the season is permissible only when there is common agreement among the student, parents, coach, and athletic director that non-participation is in the best interest of the student and the school. In such an event, another activity will be substituted to meet the student’s participation requirement. Seniors who have participated in a fall or winter varsity sport may be exempt from physical education class the remainder of the year.

Athletic Eligibility
Athletes are required to have on file a physical exam with parental consent before participation in athletics. To be eligible for varsity athletics, a student must have maintained a passing grade during the preceding school year in at least five full-unit subjects in which he/she has not previously earned credit.

Letter Awards Policy
The Brentwood Academy letter will be awarded to participants in a sport who meet the following requirements:
A freshman will letter if he/she participates in half of the quarters played or the equivalent.
A sophomore, junior, or senior will letter at the discretion of the coach and/or athletic director.
