Athletics and other fitness activities are an integral part of the Charles Wright Academy experience, and participation teaches students how to extend beyond their perceived limits; fosters teamwork, sportsmanship, understanding of commitment, and an ethical approach to competition; and helps to develop both physical skills and lifelong healthy habits. Moreover, involvement strengthens the connections among students, teachers, and coaches.

In the Lower School, students partake in physical education classes three to four times per week and have recess twice each day, and additional sports activities such as Running Club are available after school. In the Middle School, students have the opportunity to engage in competitive athletics, and every student participates in four seasons of sports or fitness activities during school hours. Middle and Upper School students may also compete in Ultimate on the club level.

Upper Schoolers compete in the Nisqually League 1A, and interscholastic sports include football, volleyball, cross-country, soccer, basketball, baseball, golf, tennis, and track and field, and other noncompetitive offerings include dance, weight training, hiking, and orienteering. More than 80 percent of Upper School students participate in competitive athletics through nine different sports, and Charles Wright has won state championships in boys’ basketball, cross-country, golf, tennis, and soccer and in girls’ cross-country and tennis.

Additionally, the CWA Sports Boosters foster school spirit by creating a community of fans who support all of our student athletes. By joining the Sports Boosters, Tarrier families gain admittance to all home games, enjoy a 10 percent discount at the Spirit Store, and, most importantly, show support for the CWA athletic program.
