Sports & Spirit

Browne Academy’s inclusive athletics program allows students to join our teams, regardless of their experience in a particular sport. This enables students with no experience in a sport to try something new, thereby gaining skills and confidence on the field or court. On the flip side, students who have previously played a particular sport have a leadership chance, acting as mentors to the less experienced players.

Browne's teams have won many league championships over the years, as evidenced by the banners hanging in the Center for Athletics and Performing Arts. In 2017-2018, both the girls and the boys 7/8 basketball teams emerged as champions! 
 
Browne Academy is a member of the ABC Athletic League of Greater Washington.  The list of schools includes:

The Browne Academy Athletic Program is open to middle school students, 5th-8th grade, who are in good academic standing.  In the Fall, there are three sports offered by the Browne athletic department.  There is a 5th/6th grade co-ed soccer team, a 7th/8th grade co-ed soccer team and a 5th-8th grade co-ed cross country team.  In the winter, we offer a 5th/6th grade girls basketball team, a 5th/6th grade boys basketball team, a 7th/8th grade girls basketball team and a 7th/8th grade boys basketball team.

SPIRIT SQUAD We’ve got that B!  We’ve got that R!  We’ve got that U-I-N-S…BRUINS SENSE OF PRIDE!  These cheers, led by our Spirit Squad, can often be heard echoing from our CAPA.  The Browne Spirit Squad was established in the fall of 2013 to give lower school students an opportunity to be ambassadors for their school.   These students have participated in various parades in our community, at our boys and girls basketball games, and have even been to cheerleading competitions.  Our Spirit Squad adds a little pep to our step, some grooves to our moves, and joy in everything they do for our school.
