Sundevil Spirit
 
Sandia Prep has a proud tradition of encouraging students to explore a wide variety of athletics to learn life-long skills of fitness, teamwork and leisure activities. More than 78% of students play on 54 teams in 22 sports. All 6th- through 9th-grade students take physical education classes as part of a regular schedule. 
 

Sandia Prep has a special "no-cut" philosophy concerning sports: If a student attends practices, that student is able to play on a team. We look for teamwork, individual skill improvement, and good sportsmanship in our athletes. This unique "no-cut" policy allows our students to enjoy a wide range of athletic opportunities, and we are proud to have earned numerous championship titles!

All students engaging in sports practices will need to “check in” with the Dr. Owl app, a free screening and monitoring tool to help protect schools during the COVID-19 pandemic. Students will need to download the app onto their phones, create an account, then answer the questions on the app. All students must be screened and temperature checked before being allowed to participate for the day. If an athlete doesn't have a phone, they will be able to log in on iPads available at the school.
