Physical fitness, teamwork, and sportsmanship are highly valued at Lawton Academy of Arts & Sciences. Students are given opportunities to improve their own fitness levels as well as to participate in intramural and competitive sports.
Besides rigorous physical education classes, Lawton Academy offers the following athletic opportunities:
Elementary (PK – 5th graders)
Elementary Running Club
Folkstyle Wrestling – Boys and Girls
Volleyball (7 years to 14 years old; co-ed)
Soccer (Spring and Fall; Co-ed)
Archery in the Schools (must be 9 or older to compete)
Secondary (MS and HS)
Cross Country (MS and HS)
Folkstyle Wrestling (through USA Wrestling) – up to 15 year-olds. (We will compete in OSSAA if and when we have students in 7th – 12th who would like to compete.)
Tennis (MS and HS, although 6th graders cannot compete in OSSAA-sanctioned meets)
Volleyball (up to 14-year-olds)
Archery in the Schools (secondary students must purchase and use their own bows)
We will continue to add OSSAA-sanctioned sports as student interest and numbers dictate and allow.
LAAS Sports Forms
Prior to participation in any sport offered at Lawton Academy, these forms must be submitted to the athletic director (JT Smith). These forms are not required for participation in physical education classes offered within the instructional day.
The President's Challenge
The President’s Challenge was a program introduced by the President’s Council on Physical Fitness. Even though this program has now been privatized, we still encourage our students to meet the standards once issued under this program. Students work to perform sit-ups, pull-ups or push-ups, flexibility tests, and aerobic capacity tests to standards of fitness determined by the Council.
Lawton Soccer Club
Lawton Soccer Club offers a Recreational Program for girls and boys ages 4-19, a Traveling Recreational Program for U12 – U19 players, and a Competitive Recreational Program for U12 – U19 players. Lawton Soccer Club is a member of United States Soccer Federation, United States Youth Soccer Association, and Oklahoma Soccer Association. Lawton Academy has teams throughout elementary and secondary.
National Archery in the Schools Program
Students age 9 and up may participate in Lawton Academy’s archery program after successfully completing a hunting safety class. We have both an elementary and a secondary team.
