Athletics

Catlin Gabel students are known as strong competitors; whether they are first-time participants who are learning new skills in one of our 14 different programs or seasoned players who are aiming to win a state championship for one of our ten varsity teams.

At Catlin Gabel, we value the lessons taught by athletics participation: teamwork, overcoming adversity, selflessness, and strength of character. Our athletics program emphasizes these values with every student-athlete, in every sport, at every level. We believe by making these our priorities, success will naturally follow.

We have a no-cut policy to encourage students to try a sport without any pressure, and have JV and JV2 teams for athletes with progressing skills. Playing time and team selection are not guaranteed at the more competitive level, but every student-athlete will see playing time if they are committed to games and practices on a regular basis.

Student-athletes can participate in a diverse array of sports. Competitive Middle School teams include soccer, cross-country, tennis, girls volleyball, basketball, and track and field. Upper School teams and individuals compete in soccer, cross-country, girls volleyball, swim, basketball, skiing, baseball, tennis, golf, and track and field.
