Noble Academy’s Athletics Program
Welcome Knights Fans!
Noble Academy established its athletics program during the 1994-95 academic year. The sports that made up the athletics program began with soccer in the fall and basketball and cheerleading in the winter. These sport programs were for students in grades 4-8. In the fall of 2000, varsity sports were added in soccer and basketball, laying the building blocks of the Knights tradition. Today, the Knights embody two conferences and 13 teams.
The junior high teams compete in the Independent School League (ISL) in the following sports: soccer, flag football, volleyball, basketball and cross country. All students in grades 6-8 may compete on the junior high teams in which all are coed with no tryouts. Fifth graders have the ability to participate on the basketball and cross country teams in order to get a feel for competition. The ISL includes B’nai Shalom Day School, Greensboro Montessori School, High Point Friends School, New Garden Friends School, The Piedmont School, and your Noble Knights.
In the 2013-14 season, Knights saw incredible progress made possible by outstanding individual and team performances. Due to this hard work and determination, our varsity sports received an invitation to join the Central Carolina Athletic League (CCAL). The CCAL consists of Fletcher Academy, Camelot Academy, Clover Garden School, Southern Wake Academy, Emerson Waldorf School, Hawbridge School, Triad Math and Science Academy, and your Noble Knights. We will begin competing in this conference in the fall of 2014.
