Lexington believes that students learn many important life lessons through participation in sports. In addition to promoting physical fitness and wellness, sports help students build character and self-confidence. Athletics teach lessons in self-discipline, commitment, goal-setting, and overcoming challenges. Sports also provide a forum for students to learn and practice leadership and teamwork skills while contributing to the school community. Lexington’s student-athletes are expected to maintain good academic standing and character throughout their participation in the athletics program.
Lexington competes against schools of similar size in the New York metropolitan area and schools for the Deaf as part of the Eastern Schools for the Deaf Athletic Association (ESDAA). Team sports for the 2021-2022 academic year will include varsity soccer, JV soccer, varsity volleyball, middle school volleyball, varsity boys’ basketball, varsity girls’ basketball, middle school boys' basketball, middle school girls' basketball, varsity cheerleading, co-ed softball, and varsity track & field.
Attendance at athletic events is open to parents, staff, alumni, and the general public. Attendees should show respect toward all student-athletes, staff, and officials during athletic events.
