Winter and Spring athletics at Sanderson are fast approaching. Learn how to get involved!

  As Troy Bolton says–or rather, sings in the classic High School Musical motion picture: “You’ve gotta get’cha head in the game”. Sanderson’s fall sports have had flourishing seasons, but as November nears, Spartan athletes need to start preparing for winter and spring athletics. 

  Below you will find a comprehensive list of known pre-season workout information, in addition to the names of individuals that can provide more specific instructions on how to receive updates. 

  NOTE: To participate on athletic teams at a Wake County Public School, students must have an updated physical and register on DragonFly. More information is located on Sanderson’s Athletic website
