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 include: soccer, volleyball, varsity boys’ basketball, varsity girls’ basketball, middle school basketball, cheerleading, wrestling, co-ed softball and track & field. Intramural sports include bowling and volleyball clubs.
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.
