The foundation of our athletic philosophy is to help students cultivate a spirit of cooperation, self-respect and respect for teammates, along with the fundamental skills of each sport—and to have fun!
Sports Program Highlights
Every year, nearly 70% of our students play at least one sport. Many play more than one.
We have a no-cut policy for our sports teams, encouraging participation and skills development. (One exception: One of our middle school ultimate teams holds try-outs, but the others do not.)
Our coaches are experienced working with children as well as in their sport, and many return to Evergreen year after year. A majority of our coaches have competitive experience in their sport.
Cross country is one of our most popular sports, with nearly the entire school eligible to participate. (Preschoolers only have to wait one more year!) Participants are organized in two large teams: prekindergarten through 3rd grade, and 4th through 8th grade, with about 115 students total. Practices are held twice a week beginning the first week of school. There are three Sunday meets over the course of the season. (prekindergarten through 8th grade)
Soccer is another Evergreen favorite. Every year, we field 10 different teams: two 1st grade coed, two 2nd grade coed, 3rd grade girls and boys, 4th-5th grade girls and boys, and middle school girls and boys. (1st through 8th grade)
Basketball draws eight teams: 3rd-4th grade girls and boys, 5th grade boys and girls, and middle school Division 1 and Division 2 girls and boys teams. Due to game scheduling needs, most of the teams play from early November through January, while the middle school girls' season runs from the beginning of February through March. (3rd through 8th grade)
Ultimate at Evergreen has grown very popular in recent years. We have six teams: 3rd grade coed, 4th grade coed, 5th grade coed, 6th grade coed, 7th and 8th grade coed, and the "Evolution" middle school team, which is by try-out only. Ultimate teams compete in the DiscNW league. (3rd through 8th grade)
We have one tennis team with all our players, 21 total most recently. The team practices twice a week at nearby Klahaya Swim and Tennis Club in Edmonds; bus transportation is provided. (4th through 8th grade)
Note: Student participation numbers are from the 2016-2017 school year.
Evergreen teams compete within the CYO (Catholic Youth Organization) league (for elementary students), and the CMSL (Cascade Middle School League) for middle school students. Ultimate is organized through the DiscNW league.
