Sands offers a variety of athletics programs available to students through the SMPO. Check the SMPO bi-weekly newsletter or the Sands Eagles Athletics website to stay up-to-date on registration and event schedules for all sports’ offerings.
Sands plays in the Cincinnati SAY East Soccer league, which involves many east side schools, and is open to boys and girls, from first to sixth grades.
Registration (sign-ups) for the Spring Season teams is the last Saturday in January and for the Fall Season teams is the last Saturday in June
Signup is on a FIRST COME BASIS – subject to coach availability and team roster limits. SPOTS FILL UP QUICKLY! End of registration depends on the number of teams available and player’s spots for a particular gender/division. Each division consists of 2 years of age range (e.g. 6 and 7, 8 and 9, 10 and 11) — Birth years are from Aug 1 to July 31.
Players are expected to attend the majority of practices and games! Please do not sign up if your child will have conflicting schedules with other priorities — as this is unfair to the team and those who may end up on the wait list.

Sands participates in the Knothole League, which consists of schools from all over Greater Cincinnati, but with an emphasis on programs inside the 275 loop. Non-Sands students are also welcome to participate; however, non-Sands players can make up no more than 20% of Sands Eagles Baseball participants.
The number of teams established and age/grade level of the teams will be determined by how many players and coaches sign up. Teams will be formed by mid-January and notification of each player’s team placement will occur soon thereafter. Practice will begin in early- to mid-March or early-April (depending on the coach), with regular season games starting in mid-April and running through mid-June, followed by possible tournament play. Practice will be twice a week until the season starts and then there will be one practice and two games weekly. Practices and games will always be on the same days except for makeup games.
