Athletics at PTS

Thank you for visiting Palmer Trinity School, home of the Falcons. At Palmer Trinity School, our students have the opportunity to participate in 12 different sports and be a part of more than 47 different teams, in a wide variety of competitive individual and team sports. PTS recognizes and celebrates the strong link that exists between high academic achievement and participation in athletics, as over 65% of our students compete as a member of at least one team, many competing on two or more. 

The Palmer Trinity athletic program is an educational-based environment where student-athletes grow and develop as young adults. Our programs aim to teach student-athletes life lessons through sports and offers all levels of competition from entry-level experience to highly-advanced skill training and competition. Students are encouraged to develop their athletic gifts in a positive coaching environment. Our coaches are experienced, enthusiastic instructors dedicated to not only teaching fundamentals, but also on developing well-rounded individuals who understand the importance of hard work, perseverance, sportsmanship and character. 
Our teams have won State, District, and Regional Championships; Falcon coaches have been recognized as “Coach of the Year” and Palmer Trinity student-athletes have been selected to All-League, All-County, and All-State honors. Palmer Trinity School graduates have gone on to become Olympians and to win NCAA National Championships. A Falcon student-athlete is truly recognized as one of the best and brightest.

Our Falcon teams are organized by grade-level, ability, skill, and degree of competitiveness. At the high school level, we offer varsity and junior varsity teams for boys and girls that compete as members of the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA). Our middle school students participate on three levels: middle school varsity (6th – 8th, as members of the South Florida Middle School Conference), middle school junior varsity (6th – 8th), and middle school intermediate (6th – 8th) teams. Game and practice schedules, coaches information, breaking news, contest results, and driving directions to the various venues can be found on the Palmer Trinity School website for all PTS teams.

Please visit our team pages and department links on our website to learn more about Palmer Trinity Athletics. Whether celebrating the thrill of victory, or the agony of defeat, we learn to win with grace and lose with dignity. We use sports to learn life lessons about hard work, dedication, perseverance, integrity, team building, and sacrifice. 
We invite each of you to join our team of Falcons!
