Welcome from the Athletic Director
Carson Long Military Academy has a rich history in athletics. Student-athletes here have the chance to compete against top opponents, get great exposure to college athletic recruiters, and work with incredible coaches who are often their teachers off the field. Our students learn how to push themselves harder and further than they ever imagined possible.
The athletic program at CLMA is an integral part of the overall educational experience. We offer each student, regardless of ability, the opportunity to experience growth, accomplishment, and success at his own skill level. All CLMA students participate in at least one athletic activity each season—as a member of one of our teams competing interscholastically over three seasons or as part of intramural, JROTC, or physical education programs.CLMA student-athletes are challenged and supported by experienced faculty-coaches who promote and deepen understanding of the sport they coach, and they foster, through example and mentoring, a deep commitment to teammates and school. They have knowledge and experience that makes them extremely effective in preparing their teams for the next game while helping individual athletes progress to the next level in their athletic development.Because of our size and location, CLMA athletic teams play against all the best schools in and around central Pennsylvania. Our varsity teams play PIAA Class A competition, with exposure to interested college and university coaches who regularly recruit students from CLMA, while our developmental teams play at a level that allows our students to hone skills and gain experience in whatever sport they choose.
Whether you are an accomplished athlete with your sights set on collegiate athletics, or a novice looking to enjoy the experience of being on a team and working for a common goal, we have a place for you!Mark Sommerville, Athletic Director
