About four out of five Glebe Elementary students participate in local sports leagues, ranging from recreational to very competitive! Here are just a few of the local leagues that have a lot of Glebe participants.
Arlington Soccer Association: Please see their website for the full range of recreational, developmental, and travel programs. FALL REGISTRATION for new players in Glebe’s recreational soccer teams is OPEN. August 6th is actually the last day to be guaranteed a spot on a team, but if you are late to the game, most of the Glebe soccer teams usually try to accommodate new, young players. Many of these teams practice at Glebe, so you’ll definitely see them in action, and some grades field two recreational teams.
Arlington Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken: There are year-round options for play and training, including fall ball. Spring Season baseball begins with practices in early March and games starting in early April. Registration opens with the new calendar year on January 1, 2019.
Arlington Little League: Registration is now open for fall ball, and you can see the options at their registration page. The deadline is September 1. Spring registration begins at the start of the new year.
Arlington Girls Softball Association: Registration closes for Fall Ball 2019 for Pigtail, Ponytail and Diamond Leagues on different dates. Early Bird registration for spring season usually is in full swing by Jan 1st, and then after a month of registration, most teams are set by mid-February.
Arlington Youth Basketball: Registration usually is the first week of October. Players are grouped by neighborhood schools as much as possible, and registration is through the county’s website for kids in 3rd through 8th Grades.

Scouting at Glebe
While Glebe Elementary School and the Glebe PTA don’t officially sponsor Cub Scout and Girl Scout troops, there are several active troops at the school. If you’re interested in joining a troop or volunteering to help form a troop, please contact:
Jennifer Meder (email) is a Glebe-based Girl Scout leader who is also Coordinator for all the Girl Scout troops based at Glebe.
Cub Scout packs at Glebe typically meet on Monday nights in the multipurpose room, either as a den (many of the packs together) or as a pack (a group of similar aged students). The boys work together toward badges that allow them to advance to higher levels of scouting. You might see them launching rockets on the Glebe field, blowing miniature sailboats in the annual “Raingutter Regata” at a nearby park, or racing derby cars to see which car is the fastest and which one looks the best.
Girl Scout troops also meet at Glebe, typically in classrooms, as well as planning excursions and camping trips. Most meetings are within single grade troops, though sometimes troops join together for special activities. The girls work on “journeys” toward advancement to higher levels of scouting. In recent years, they’ve explored nature centers, built a friendship bench for the school, learned about the environment, done yoga on the Glebe lawn, gone camping and whitewater rafting, and yes – sold those great Girl Scout cookies!
School Safety Patrol
Glebe students have the opportunity to be Safety Patrol Officers in the 4th and 5th Grade. In this role, they assist students and parents as they arrive and depart the school.
During the summer, the Arlington County Police Department often provides a five-day Safety Patrol Camp for Arlington County students going into the 4th or 5th grade. Safety Patrol Camp is for those students who would like to be Safety Patrols for the upcoming school year. Children attending this camp will receive instruction on their patrol responsibilities.
