Our Athletic Events not only highlight our student athletes, they draw our entire community together. As part of our regularly scheduled athletic curriculum, a series of special athletic events are held throughout the year that allow students of all ages to participate in fun and challenging activities designed to activate both the body and the mind.
These school and community wide events include the fall Walk-A-Thon, a Seahawks Athletics Day, an end-of-the-year Fathers’ Field Day, and a special Sixth Grade Triathlon.
Our annual Walk-A-Thon held each fall is our first athletic community wide event of the school year and one of our most exciting fundraisers. In preparation for the Walk-A-Thon, students train and condition their bodies in P.E. during the month of September, and they work on getting pledges for each lap they complete in the designated time. On the day of the event, students and teachers run or jog laps around a track at Palisades Park to the sounds of lively music and the cheering of parents, grandparents, relatives and friends. The spirit, energy and team effort displayed by everyone involved is inspiring, as is the dedication shown by students, families, and friends, who always ensure our fundraising efforts are successful. Students particularly enjoy this event because it is one of the times that they can directly give back to the school through their efforts and commitment.
SEAHAWKS ATHLETICS DAY
Seahawks Athletics Day takes place mid year. Activities are inspired by the Summer Olympic Games, and the school is divided into teams by color. Having every grade be equally represented in each team emphasizes concepts of teamwork, cooperation, and good sportsmanship. This practice encourages communication and positive role modeling across grades and enhances the spirit of fun over excessive competition.
SIXTH GRADE TRIATHLON
The sixth graders train hard for the Sixth Grade Triathlon held each spring. Students swim at the Jonathan Club, bike to Temescal Canyon Road, and finally, run from Temescal to the finish line at Seven Arrows where the rest of the school awaits their arrival with cheers and celebration. It is a sixth grade “perk” that our students look forward to throughout their time at Seven Arrows!
FATHER’S FIELD DAY
Just before the end of the school year, our families get together for an activity filled day at Palisades Park in honor of our fathers and father figures. Students in all grades as well as the faculty, staff, and parents partake in an assortment of recreational sports games such as soccer, kickball and capture the flag. A lovely lunch put together by our community moms rounds out this special day.
