University School of Jackson

Athletics

The athletic program at University School of Jackson is a member of TSSAA’s Division II, one of the strongest in the state of Tennessee. USJ’s Middle and Upper Schools currently field 37 teams in 13 different sports. USJ has won State Championships in girls’ soccer, girls’ softball, boys’ baseball, and boys’ tennis. Each year, USJ teams are well represented in regional and state tournament play. Our sports complex and athletic facilities are among the finest in the state.  

USJ focuses on overall wellness by offering a strength and conditioning coach and facilities for our athletes and students. Physical education classes start as early as two years old in the Lower School, which serves as an introduction to organized sports. USJ Lower School students have the opportunity to participate in a number of sports programs including basketball, football, tennis, soccer, and gymnastics.

The school’s commitment to athletics results in high sports participation at all grade levels. Lower School students join community recreation leagues. Students have physical education classes through eighth grade. Varsity coaches offer camps and after-school instruction for Lower School students.

Athletics Facilities

Our facilities include a football stadium with a track, soccer fields, baseball and softball fields; baseball indoor complex, tennis courts, practice football fields, weight and conditioning complex, cross country course around campus, two gymnasiums in the Upper/Middle School, two gymnasiums in the Lower School, and an outdoor playground with basketball courts at the Lower School.
