Exeter Summer Athletics

Physical education, an important component of Exeter Summer, promotes fitness, cooperation, sportsmanship and the learning of new skills. The offerings are designed to introduce fundamental rules and skills, provide some competition and recreation, and stimulate long-term participation in athletics. Programs meet four afternoons per week for at least one hour each day. Sports are split into two 2 1/2 week sessions, and you’ll make your selections through the online application. Visit the Physical Education sections in the UPPER SCHOOL or ACCESS EXETER catalog for all choices.
