About Meridian Athletics
Meridian Athletics Philosophy
At Meridian School, we believe that students should balance the different aspects of their lives - intellectual, physical, and emotional - to achieve well-being and well-roundedness. Participation in competitive athletics and sports can contribute to this balance. The athletic experience will be provided within a nurturing environment that motivates the student athlete to view athletics and sports as life-long endeavors. Coaches will work with student athletes to aid their understanding of their strengths and weaknesses to enhance their personal development and improve their contribution to the success of the team. Win or lose, Meridian School will encourage student athletes to provide a winning effort, exhibit sportsmanship, enthusiasm, and demonstrate respect for all.

This gym is often referred to as our Mays gym. Most Middle School Basketball games are held in our "Primary School Gym." See directions below.

Teams and fans of visiting schools should note that no one will be allowed to enter the building for games ─ student athletes, coaching staff, family members or fans ─ before 30 minutes prior to a game's scheduled start time. Additionally, Meridian is a kindergarten-12th grade school with dismissal traffic that begins at 2:30 and does not end until 4:30 (12:30-2:00pm on Wednesdays). It is extremely difficult to access the school grounds during these time periods. Although every effort has been made while scheduling games to avoid requiring visiting schools to enter the campus during this high traffic period, please plan your arrival to Meridian's campus accordingly.
