An independent day school serving grades K-12 | St. Paul, MN


Team sports are a wonderful way for Lower School students to develop their skills to a greater level, experience competition with others of the same age and ability, and enjoy the school spirit that comes with being part of a school sports team. Upper School student-athletes will often come to the Lower School to practice with younger players, and these experiences help Lower School students understand what it means to be a Spartan at SPA. Contact Lower & Middle School Athletic Director Taylor Tvedt for more information about Lower School Athletics.

Students in grades 3-5 can participate in co-ed sports clinics. Skill development, introducing team concepts, and having fun are the main components of these clinics. Clinics occur 1-2 times a week from 3:15-4:30 p.m during weekdays at the Goodrich Campus, and on Saturday mornings at the Randolph. Student-athletes in grades 3 and 4 practice together on Mondays, Tuesdays, or Saturdays. 5th Grade clinics occur on Wednesdays, Thursdays, or Saturdays. There are no competitions for Lower School student-athletes.
