Welcome to St. John's Athletics!

St. John’s is home to one the top private middle school programs in Tampa. This is a result of the dedicated athletes and coaches who perpetually win championships in wide variety of sports. Students are afforded nine sports to participate in during the course of the school year. With a “no-cut policy” for the majority of sports, students are able to compete on competitive varsity teams, or develop fundamentals and passion for competition on mid-varsity and JV. St. John’s goal is to encourage students to broaden their horizons and try something new that will keep them physically active and create collaborative team skills to develop individuals into student-athletes. Consistently, over 85% of St. John’s student population participates in at least one or more sport, which shows how much pride our student-athletes have in representing St. John’s. 

St. John’s Middle School is one of top schools in the Florida West Coast League, winning a plethora of championships that are proudly immortalized on banners in Marx Gymnasium. One of the most important reasons our teams are so successful is due to the dedication and hard work of our coaching staff. Each one of our coaches has background knowledge, or playing experience, in the sport they coach, which enhances their abilities to teach all athletes appropriately. There is no doubt, St. John’s provides excellence academics and sports as one of the best athletic programs in the Tampa Bay area.
