Austin Is Athletics
At Austin Public Schools, physical activity plays a big part in the student experience. From Boost Up at Woodson Kindergarten Center to MSHSL sports at Austin High School, APS offers a wide range of athletic opportunities for students beyond basic physical education courses, including:
- Brain Breaks, Boost Up, and Mileage Club, all of which encourage physical activity as a means of increasing student focus
- Intramural athletics at IJ Holton
- Over 25 different sports beginning at Ellis and continuing throughout AHS, including football, soccer, hockey, basketball, and both baseball and softball
- A wide range of physical education courses at AHS including weight lifting, yoga, and Packer Fit Club
From an increased focus on personal health to social and physical development, athletics and physical activity play a large role in the educational experience. At Austin Public Schools we pride ourselves on the number of opportunities we provide for our students.
