The Miller School of Albemarle athletic program embodies the spirit of the School`s mission by educating the mind, hands, and heart through healthy and balanced athletic competition and team membership. For well over a century, MSA student-athletes have competed with integrity, determination, and spirit, leading teams that honor the traditions and high standards of our institution in each athletic endeavor.
Miller School of Albemarle, a coeducational day and boarding college preparatory school for students in grades 8-12 and post-graduate, opened its doors in 1878 with 33 students. Girls first enrolled in 1884, making it one of the nation`s oldest coeducational boarding schools. The school is situated 12 miles west of Charlottesville on a gently rolling campus of 1600 pristine acres.
The baseball program places emphasis on developing the mind, making informed baseball decisions, the hands, the physical skills of throwing, catching, hitting, fielding, and running, and the heart, inspiring players to play with passion, confidence, commitment, and integrity. While each of these is important on its own, when fostered together, they enable the game of baseball to be played well.
Our nurturing and controlled environment promotes physical and emotional well-being, an understanding of world cultures and values, in a safe environment. MSA`s historical tradition of implementing an approach of 'Mind, Hands and Heart' stresses the need to learn how to accomplish ideas and projects in a sincere, heartfelt manner.

The team is a varsity sport and competes in both high school and USA Cycling events throughout the year. In addition the VAHS MTB Series, the team competes in USA Cycling road races, criteriums, and Virginia Off-Road Series races on weekends.
