Program & Philosophy

La Pietra's athletic philosophy is to develop young women physically, emotionally, socially, and ethically. We believe that athletics can teach positive values, self-confidence, and respect for others. We believe that doing one's best and exhibiting good sportsmanship supersedes winning at all costs. This philosophy extends to our coaching staff who are all National Federation of High School (NFHS) certified.

6th Grade Sports Program & Philosophy

Our philosophy at the sixth grade level is to provide athletic opportunities where students can have fun and experience being on an athletic team, learn, fundamental skill development from qualified coaches, and develop values and character traits (enthusiasm, confidence, industriousness, cooperation, etc.) through practices and competition. In addition, our 'no cut' policy allows all students who desire to participate in a sport. In volleyball and basketball, our sixth grade La Pietra Lady Panthers teams participate in the Christian School Athletic League (CSAL) where students compete against other school teams in an environment, which fosters teamwork, sportsmanship, enthusiasm, and appreciation for team sports. Scores are recorded during the game but win-loss records are not kept as the emphasis is on participation in games and learning for each participant.

We offer six different sports for our students during their sixth grade year:
  • Swimming (August - September)
  • Volleyball (October - November)
  • Track (January)
  • Archery (March)
  • Basketball (March - April)
  • Tennis (May)

Middle School Sports Program & Philosophy

Our Middle School/Intermediate Program (7th - 9th Grade) at La Pietra - Hawaii School for Girls is offered through the ILH. Our primary goals at the Intermediate level are:
  • Emphasizing participation
  • Providing positive athletic experiences that teach valuable life lessons
  • Preparing students for the transition to interscholastic competition at the high school level through development of fundamental skills, game strategy/knowledge, and game experience

We have a 'no cut' policy at the Intermediate level, which allows all students who desire to participate in a sport (Pac-5 teams may have try-outs and 'cuts' for teams depending on the sport and number of participants). Once students have signed up and joined a team, there is an expectation they attend all practices and competitions. There is no guarantee for equal playing time at the middle school level due to factors such as team size, level of player experience, and length of competitions. However, every student-athlete participates in practices, sport specific skill work, and the social interactions of being part of a team.

Students can only participate on one team each sport season due to the commitment level and expectations required to be a member of an ILH team. The Intermediate Sports offered are:

Fall Season (August - October)
  • Volleyball
  • Pac - 5 Cheerleading
  • Pac - 5 Cross Country
Winter Season (November - February)
  • Basketball
  • Tennis
  • Swimming & Diving
  • Pac - 5 Wrestling
  • Pac - 5 Soccer
Spring Season (February - May)
  • Archery
  • Golf
  • Pac - 5 Judo
  • Pac - 5 Softball
  • Pac - 5 Track

Upper School Sports Program & Philosophy

La Pietra's athletic philosophy at the Upper/High school level is to develop young women physically, emotionally, socially, and ethically. La Pietra’s High School interscholastic athletic program competes in the Interscholastic League of Honolulu (ILH) and the Hawaii High School Athletic Association (HHSAA). Our Junior Varsity (JV) and Varsity teams strive to be competitive with the top athletic team in our league and the state of Hawaii. More importantly though, we believe that athletics provides student-athletes with exceptional opportunities to develop one’s character teaching positive values, building self-confidence, and instilling respect for others. We believe that doing one's best and exhibiting good sportsmanship supersedes winning at all costs.

Our La Pietra Lady Panthers coaching staff members are all NFHS certified and include numerous coaches who have competed at the collegiate and/or Olympic competition levels.
