Bishop Noland Episcopal Day School athletics mission is to teach leadership, self discipline, and sportsmanship, to a diverse group of student athletes, in a growth centered environment. Being part of EDS athletics provides student athletes the opportunity to learn important life skills such as goal setting, self-confidence, decisiveness, passion, and enthusiasm.

Approximately 80% of students in 9th-12th grades consistently participate in pom squad, cheerleading, esports, football, volleyball, cross country, basketball, golf, tennis and track & field.

Our 5th-8th grade students participate in the Calcasieu Catholic Athletic League (CCAL) and our high school student athletes compete in the Association of Christian Educators of Louisiana (ACEL). The ACEL league offers opportunities to compete in both junior varsity and varsity level sports with other high schools in the state.  We look forward to continuing to grow our program into the future.
