The competitive programs of HAEF’s varsity teams are targeted for talented and gifted children in order to further stimulate their interest in sports.
Students selected from the first years of Elementary School are trained by qualified Physical Education teachers and steered toward competitive sports activities. Our young athletes are given an opportunity to try their hand at a variety of sports up through Junior High School grade 7. By 8th grade, they must select two sports (usually one team and one individual) in which they receive specialized training and in which they concentrate their efforts up through the end of their High School career.
Our varsity teams participate in the following competitive programs:
