Team Sports at EHS
Opportunities for team-based athletic experiences are essential for the physical, emotional, and social well-being of our students. We remain committed to providing the best sports experience possible for all of our programs.
Upon students’ return to campus, we will blend traditional fall and winter sport offerings through the afternoon option program. See the Session II offerings below. We will pursue opportunities for teams to compete against other schools as we are able to ensure the health and wellness of our full community.
Traditional spring sport offerings will follow the combined fall and winter seasons, with training beginning as early as some point in March.
League-Sanctioned Play for Winter Sports
The Independent School League (ISL) will not conduct traditional league-sanctioned competition or conference championships for winter teams, a decision that affects EHS girls’ basketball teams. The Interstate Athletic Conference (IAC) will delay winter competition until after January. Episcopal’s wrestling and boys’ basketball teams compete in the IAC.
We continue to monitor announcements from the governing bodies that oversee interscholastic play for winter sports not governed by either the IAC or the ISL (climbing, squash, indoor track & field).
EHS is pursuing creative opportunities for a full variety of athletic activities for all its winter teams, including the possibility of a limited number of contests with schools that may be similarly positioned to support a safe return to competitive play. If health conditions allow, we also will aim to create inter-squad competitions.
Fall and Spring Play
Plans for the sports in these seasons remain dependent on continued conversations with our leagues and consideration of broader health guidelines. Both the ISL and the IAC continue to reassess conditions with hopes to resume league play for traditional "fall" and "spring" sports as circumstances allow. No revisions to initial plans regarding interscholastic play for these seasons have been announced to date.
