Early Light Academy offers extra curricular athletics for 6th through 9th grade students. Fall sports includes boys and girls Cross Country, girls Volleyball, and boys Soccer. Winter sports includes boys and girls Basketball. Spring sports includes girls Soccer, boys Volleyball and sometimes we offer coed Ultimate Frisbee. All of these sports programs compete in the Utah Charter and Small School Athletic League (UCSSAL). ELA has traditionally had a high quality athletic program.
These sports programs are open to all ELA students (Grades 6-9) and all are encouraged to tryout. Most athletic programs start with an “open gym” format that allows students to attend without trying out to help them decide if it is something they may be interested in. Some sports teams will have a limit on the number of players allowed and some teams will accept all students trying out. We encourage all 6th-9th grade students to consider trying out for any of the teams or contact the Athletic Director, Mr. Robinson, email@example.com if you would like more information.
For those who did not make the team:
Thanks to everyone that attended tryouts. If you did not make the team this year we encourage you to keep playing basketball and try out for the team next year.
For those who did make the team:
Practice will begin on Thursday, October 12, 2023 in the ELA gym from 3:30 to 5 pm.
We will need to get parent cell phone numbers to get everyone on the Team GroupMe app. We will put out Parent Information on GroupMe and hand out Athletic Contracts next week.
The first game will be on Monday, October 30th.
