At BA, we believe that the experience of competing, developing lifelong skills and working toward a common goal is invaluable in the growth of a student. Being a student-athlete teaches time management by meeting the myriad expectations of teachers and coaches, and develops a sense of sportsmanship, fair play, the value of perseverance, practice, courage, sacrifice and supporting one’s teammates through team or individual adversity. The meaning of commitment is embodied through the experience of team athletics at Beaufort Academy.
Beaufort Academy offers the opportunity to participate and gain these valuable experiences by participating in Swimming, Volleyball, Tennis, Basketball, and Soccer for girls, and Swimming, Football, Basketball, Soccer, Baseball, Tennis, and Golf for boys. Teams compete through the South Carolina Independent School Association (SCISA).
BA’s teams are competitive at the Varsity, Junior Varsity and Middle School levels. At the Middle School level, our belief is that everyone should gain experience and skill development at this stage as competitors, by receiving ample playing time which is earned by strong effort and a positive attitude at all practices. At the Junior Varsity level, this is still a developmental stage, while the goal of winning becomes a higher objective as athletes prepare for the intensity of the Varsity level and competing for regional and state titles. At the JV level it is expected that everyone gets a chance to play, but playing time might not be as ample for each player as it was at the Middle School level. At the Varsity level, the emphasis is on the team working towards the common goal of winning. The expectation is that team members are focused, always coachable, and work hard to maximize their individual potential to help the team. Playing time is 100% earned at the Varsity level.

The Blue and White Club is Beaufort Academy’s all-volunteer booster club in support of our teams and coaches in interscholastic athletics. This is a wonderful way to get involved, make a difference and have great fun with parents, alumni and other supporters of each student’s positive experience in team sports. Please contact the Director of Athletics or the Blue and White Club president for more information about the many ways that the Blue and White Club can involve you. Thank you for your support of the student athletes and those who teach and coach them!
