We strive to offer competitive athletic programs that provide students the opportunities to collaborate and develop abilities and skills that will benefit them in a positive and meaningful way while in school and beyond. 

Our athletic teams consistently compete at the region and state level and have achieved several league and state titles throughout the years. Since 2014, the Pelham Panthers are home to four State Championships, six State Runner-Up titles, and multiple Individual State Champions. We offer 13 varsity sports at the high school level and 11 sports at the middle school level.

Pelham coaches and team sponsors often collaborate with Pelham Parks & Recreation to support our city’s youth sports programs by providing instruction, camps, and resources for our elementary school athletes and parents.
