The so-called sports captains, i.e. mostly the captains of the School teams or other interested students, regularly organise tournaments at the Middle and Upper Schools during the main School Games which are held between the individual residential groups at the boarding school.
The Wing Tournaments at Salem are integrated in the Salem Weekends; all the schoolchildren are present and organise a joint program with sport, action and a disco party in the evening. At the end of each school year, the overall winner is selected.
At the Upper School level this takes place within the College League which regularly encourages competitive sport. The Evening Sports Event for the entire School - with its main focus on athletics - is also held at the College and is organised by the sports captains.
At all the School's locations, events are also occasionally held where the teachers and schoolchildren compete against each other, and the legendary meetings between the Middle School and Upper School are carried out at the so-called "Salem-Spetz Games".
