Raptors Athletics

ratner-raptors-logo-purple-and-orangeAthletics is an important part of any school’s curriculum – students often learn some of life’s most valuable lessons and skills while competing on the field of play. Ratner School students in grades 5 through 8 are eligible to participate in our interscholastic athletics program. Athletics offerings include soccer, basketball, and Ultimate Frisbee.


Raptors Basketball  is open to all interested Middle School students (Grades 5-8 only). Basketball Season begins on Monday, November 7 with evaluations to determine JV and Varsity teams.


Practices will be from 3:30 – 4:30 at Ratner

All games will be at Hawken Lower School on Sunday mornings (with the exception of one mid-week home game in December). Sunday game times will vary (see calendar and Team App for updates). Parents are responsible for game day transportation.

On days where the Varsity team has a game, JV practices will be shortened. This will depend on the start time of the Varsity game. Coach encourages all JV players to stay and support the varsity team.


Practice is 4:30 – 5:30pm at Ratner, with proctored study tables from 3:30 – 4:30 (JV practice time)
Games are during the week, and the team will be bused to and from any away games.
