Packer student-athletes excel in competition while embodying our core values of scholarship, integrity, and respect. Through our athletics program, students learn discipline, teamwork, commitment and collaboration. Packer coaches prepare and challenge each athlete to compete at the highest level, while instilling a sense of sportsmanship and emphasizing each team member's individual role in pursuit of the team’s goals.
I love how Packer takes a holistic approach to students’ well-being and I also enjoy the strong sense of community that comes with being a part of the Packer family.
We offer a comprehensive middle and upper school athletics program that is designed to complement a Packer education.
The Packer Pelicans regularly reach the season, tournament, and state championships in several different sports. We compete in a number of leagues, including Athletic Association of Independent Schools (AAIS), Athletic Conference of Independent Schools (ACIS), and the New York State Association of Independent Schools Athletic Association (NYSAISAA).
Our athletics department respects and celebrates inclusion and prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression. Consistent with guidelines set by the NYSAIS Athletics Association, Packer supports every student-athlete's right to self-identify and encourages students to play on the team that best affirms their gender identity. As sports in NYSAISAA competition are arranged by the gender binary, a non-binary student has the opportunity to play on the team where the student feels the most comfortable and must remain with their team for the duration of the season.
