Boarding School Sports & Athletics

Play with passion

All academics and no athletics makes Jack and Jill dull boarders.

Today, boarding schools add new varieties of athletics all the time. In fact, boarding schools have established themselves as training grounds for many of the world's best athletes, from basketball's Steve Nash to hockey's Sidney Crosby to basketball's Joakim Noah.

Sports at boarding schools have numerous benefits professed and recognized by the schools themselves. As Headmaster Cliff Johnston of Newbridge Academy says, "Physiologically, students are in a much better position to use their minds when they've had some physical balance to the day."

House Sports are yet another way in which students compete with each other. And not all of these sports are serious. St Michaels University School, their annual House Olympics includes an obstacle course and an egg toss among other decidedly silly "sports."

Live the sport you love

While boarding schools still offer traditional sports like rugby and rowing, there are a variety of contemporary athletic programs in a wide variety, including gymnastics and core fitness to diving and figure skating.
