Interscholastic Teams

Interscholastic athletics begin in the 7th grade, with teams participating as members of the Central League. The league, governed by the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA), is a non-seasonal championship, goal-oriented league. There are no standings of teams and value is placed on team play and sportsmanship. Several competition "club" sports are not governed by the league, including ice hockey and squash.

Sports Philosophy and Roster Size

The sports program at Bala Cynwyd is designed to promote an enriching and rewarding athletic experience for all students involved. We will make every effort to include all students who come out for any particular sport. In certain situations, however, there may be a need to have "limited rosters." This decision would be based on the number of current students interested in a specific sport and the "ideal" number of participants in that sport to provide a safe and enriching athletic experience for each student athlete. Student safety will also play a role in the determination of an "ideal" number for a specific sport. The administration and athletic department will evaluate these situations on a season-by-season, team-by-team basis.
