Athletics

DVFriends Dragon Mascot
At Delaware Valley Friends School, we value interscholastic athletics, and our program is an integral part of the educational experience. 
 
Our mission is to teach and promote sportsmanship, ethical conduct, discipline, and teamwork while developing the physical and mental well being of our student-athletes. Our athletic program is broad and provides opportunities for all students to participate as well as excel. Members of the Tri-County Independent School League since 1994, 85% of students in grades 6 - 12 participate in interscholastic sports teams. Each spring, we celebrate all of our teams and players at an Annual All Sports Banquet
 
We offer boys and girls teams in soccer, basketball, and lacrosse. We have a girls tennis team in the fall and our cross country, spring tennis, ultimate frisbee, and golf teams are coed. All of our sports teams are no-cut, encouraging students to participate whether they are veteran athletes or new to a sport. Click the Athletic Teams link on the right side of the page to see a list of current DVFriends teams, and links to team schedules.
 
Championships and Sportsmanship Awards
Our teams have earned a number of League championships, including titles in soccer, golf, lacrosse, and ultimate frisbee. Our athletic program has also won the League sportsmanship award eight times and the Chester County Sports Officials Sportsmanship and Fair Play Award three times. 
 
Other Sports and PE Options
There are non-competitive options available for students at DVFriends, such as yoga and team manager positions, and students may earn PE credit for participating in a sport at the varsity level outside of DVFriends. Some examples include hockey, baseball, softball, equestrian competition, dance, and martial arts.

DVFriends Dragon Mascot
The DVFriends mascot is the dragon and our athletic logo was designed by two DVFriends alumni: Nicole Debrocky-Fusfeld '07 and Tyler Klaus '07.
