Na Pueo athletes compete in 9 varsity sports in the Maui Interscholastic League (MIL) Division II.  All upper school students are required to play one sport each year, although most scholar-athletes will compete in multiple.  Practices are held every day under the direction of qualified coaches at various facilities on the west side, including the Bozich Center and Lahaina Aquatic Center.  Venues for MIL competitions are located on Maui, Lana'i, and Moloka'i.
