At the elementary level, Acero Athletics offers six team sports available to academically eligible 5th-8th graders:
- Boys soccer
- Co-ed volleyball
- Boys basketball
- Girls basketball
- Co-ed flag football
- Girls soccer
Each season lasts between 8-12 weeks and consists of weekly practices and organized games. Student-athletes are taught the fundamentals of the game. The focus is on skill development and teaching valuable life lessons through sport (e.g., sportsmanship, teamwork, discipline and commitment).
Acero schools play in their own league – the Acero Athletic Conference. Parents are expected to support their student-athlete(s) in their sports activities and be present at workshops, team meetings, games and end-of-season awards ceremonies. A student fee is charged for participation in each sport. These funds help to offset costs associated with the program (e.g., officiating, equipment, rental of facilities for games, etc.). Uniforms are purchased by each individual participant in advance and can be used across multiple sports and seasons.
