The athletic program varies from year to year to accommodate student interest. Students may join interscholastic and intramural teams. In accordance with the NY State Commissioners regulations, interscholastic teams are not open to sixth grade students. Seventh and eighth graders are eligible for both teams and clubs. Traditionally, Herman Badillo Bilingual Academy has offered a variety of sports that have included the following: cross country, track, basketball and Girls on the Run. Transportation for these activities is provided. In order to participate on a team, a medical evaluation and proper paperwork must be on file in the nurse’s office. See the nurse for more information. Athletic opportunities are available to younger students during Afterschool program and Saturday Academies.
