    Athletics Program

    The TEMS interscholastic program emphasizes safety, participation, fun and fundamentals. Our school offers athletic programs which provide for the athletic and social development needs of our students. These are open to all 7th and 8th grade students as per the PIAA guidelines. For many of our students, involvement in interscholastic sports is a very important aspect of school life.

    The middle school years are a time for exploration. As a student's self-image crystallizes, exposure to a variety of experiences promotes prudent risk-taking along a pathway to a positive self-image. The interscholastic sports program at TEMS emphasizes the values of participation, team play and sportsmanship. As one progresses through the middle school years, this emphasis is augmented with a process of skill development.
