Athletics

Primary and Middle School Athletics

The athletics program at Lowell is special because all children—from Kindergarten through 8th grade—have the opportunity to play and be a part of a team.
We focus on instruction and emphasize the value of practice. Athletes learn the fundamentals of their chosen sports, as well as drills and conditioning techniques they can use to improve their skills. Students are exposed to a disciplined work ethic and experience the value of teamwork.
 
Lowell athletes proudly represent the “Lowell Way” with good sportsmanship on and off the field, court, pool, track, or course. And, there is no better place to play than in front of a screaming group of fans on the field or in the Lowell Dome!

Ways Parents Support Our Program

Parents are our loudest cheering section. Positive encouragement from the sidelines boosts team spirit every game! Coaches also welcome parent volunteers to keep score, record statistics, provide snacks and transportation, or take photos during games and meets. Most of all, we hope parents will take an active interest in their children’s athletic activities. Sports are a great way for families to bond and have fun together.
