Upstanding student athletes, fantastic competition
Milton Hershey School student athletes know what it means to be a Spartan. Whether they participate in competitive or intramural sports, our athletes display school pride and respect for the Spartan mascot by competing with courage, resilience, loyalty and determination.
Our athletic opportunities help students find their interests and commit to their passion. They also learn how to build lifelong friendships and cooperate with a team that works toward a common goal. Coaches motivate athletes, encourage positive attitudes, and help them balance academics and sports.

Children participate in intramural team sports in the Elementary and Middle Divisions, such as basketball, baseball, softball, soccer, field hockey, swimming and diving, track and field, and wrestling.
