Nansemond-Suffolk Academy has a thorough athletic program. Boys and girls in grades 6-12 are eligible to tryout and compete for our school teams. Each program has a varsity team and a JV and/or JJV team. The Saints compete in the Tidewater Conference of Independent Schools (TCIS) and a majority play at the Division II level for the Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association (VISAA). Many Nansemond-Suffolk student-athletes have continued their career at the NCAA Division I, II and III and NAIA levels.

While academics are the top priority for our student-athletes, we do believe the correct balance between academics and athletics to be beneficial towards a healthy lifestyle and building character. Our coaches are expected to put the student-athletes in a position to be successful through positive leadership, mentorship, sportsmanship and teamwork. The standard for our coaches and student-athletes is to strive for excellence in every aspect of their lives.
