Athletic Philosophy

The Bay School supports a large, varied, and competitive athletic program consistent with the school’s commitment to a healthy and responsible lifestyle. More than 60% of students participate in interscholastic athletics. Bay's athletic values align with Bay's precepts and include hard work, perseverance, and commitment. 

Our coaches are lifelong athletes and experienced, ethical, enthusiastic educators. Their commitment to athletic excellence mirrors the high standards of our academic program. The Bay School offers interscholastic athletics grounded in both broad participation and competitive integrity. In practice, games, matches, and races, Bay athletes, coaches, and fans pride ourselves on a balance of competitive spirit, team focus, and honoring the game through sportsmanship. Bay values sports as a vehicle for personal growth and self-discovery. 
Bay Teams
Bay supports 24 girls, boys, and coed teams across 10 sports, which are affiliated with California Interscholastic Federation North Coast Section (NCS) and Bay Counties League–Central (BCL-Central). Over 60% percent of our students participate on an athletic team each year, and 100 percent of 9th-, 10th-, and 11th-graders participate in a sport or physical activity. Bay athletes earn all-league team honors every season, and in its relatively short history, the school has brought home over 30 league championships and numerous berths in North Coast Section playoffs.
