Please see the Calendar for all games and practice information.

Dear FA Families,

As we head toward cooler temperatures, I would like to relay some important information about the winter sports offerings for our Friends Academy Falcons. As in years past, we will field Varsity and Junior Varsity basketball teams for both girls and boys in grades 5 – 8.

Our basketball courts will be full of activity again this winter. Students will officially begin play on Monday, December 3, 2018 (Boys) & Tuesday, December 4, 2018 (Girls).

Friends Academy has a no-cut policy; all students (grades 5-8) may compete in our interscholastic program. Tryouts are merely a formality that helps us organize Varsity and Junior Varsity rosters appropriately. This year Kristin Furtado & Alyson Gangi will coach Varsity and JV girls teams.  The boys JV & Varsity basketball teams will be coached by Michael Williams

Please check the school’s master calendar for the most current schedules, including dates and times for practices and games. When changes are made, the Athletics calendar will always contain the most up-to-date information.

We are excited for the winter season to begin, and we hope your child finds a place to move and grow within our sports program. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.


Michael Williams
Director of Athletics & Alumni Relations
