Physical education is important for students at Providence and is provided daily in the elementary program.  The annual Santa Barbara Youth Races, the second-largest track meet in Santa Barbara, affords our students an opportunity to put their skills to work in a fun and exciting environment while providing the community a firsthand look at the value we place on physical fitness.

After-school sports include volleyball, basketball, and flag football for boys and girls. The purpose of our athletics program is to develop in our student athletes an understanding of competition, a skill set to succeed in a competitive environment, a strong sense of good sportsmanship, and preparation for success in future athletic endeavors.
