Upper School Athletics
Cutthroat athletes are defined by their passion, determination, and sportsmanship.
Sun Valley Community School students set high goals for themselves in the classroom and on the fields, courts, and snow.
Cutthroats push themselves to their full potential in soccer, tennis, cross-country, track and field, volleyball, golf, and basketball. Beyond school offerings, students compete in individual and team sports such as figure skating, mountain biking, hockey, and equestrian events.
The Sun Valley Ski Academy, a unique partnership between Sun Valley Community School and the renowned Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation, provides snow sport athletes world-class coaching for Alpine, cross country, freestyle skiing, and snowboarding.
In addition to playing on school sports teams, Sun Valley Community School students compete in a wide variety of individual athletic pursuits. Cutthroat athletes have achieved high-level success in hockey, figure skating, gymnastics, swimming, equestrian events, and more. In the Upper School, the term system, scheduling flexibility, and summer school options allow serious athletes to tailor their academic year to maximize in-season training time without sacrificing educational quality and progress.
