Harding Academy athletics is centered in our above athletic mission statement and our three core values of building Confidence, developing Character, and creating lifelong Connections. Our inclusive no-cut policy offers opportunities for all of our students in 14 different sports spanning four athletics seasons, each eight weeks long (early fall, late fall, winter, spring).

We welcome students of all skill levels and create a competitive yet supportive environment organizing teams into varsity and sub-varsity tiers grounded in the philosophies of education-based athletics. This approach allows each student to compete at their appropriate level and reach their fullest potential. Nearly 40% of our middle school students participate in all four athletic seasons, showcasing our dedication to multi-sport involvement and a holistic athletic experience.

Our athletic program is open to students in grades 6 through 8, with expanding opportunities for 5th graders. We are a part of the highly competitive Harpeth Valley Athletic Conference, a conference with a tradition of excellence dating back to the 1970’s. We are one of fourteen full-time members, most of whom are our peer independent schools in the greater Nashville area. 
Harding Academy Athletics is more than a collection of teams – we’re a community dedicated to our mission and united by our passion for middle school sports. 
Go Hawks!
