The Gunnery's sports program cultivates competition and cooperation in the context of organized athletics. This is a tradition that stretches back, unbroken, to Mr. Gunn's era. A staunch advocate of physical fitness, he created the school's first athletic teams. With a wide range of options – 36 Gunnery teams compete in 15 sports – you have the opportunity to try new sports and to perfect your skills. By competing on a team, you will make friends with people outside your classes or dormitory, and you will learn what it means to define goals for yourself and for the group. Your coaches will be members of the Gunnery faculty who are as passionate about coaching as they are about teaching.
Our facilities accommodate a variety of sports and athletes at all levels. The Ogden D. Miller Memorial Athletic Center houses two full-sized gymnasiums, training facilities, a fitness center, and a wrestling room. Just down the hill from the gym is the Linen Rink, home ice for Highlander hockey. Five miles from campus, the school maintains boathouse facilities for the crew program on Lake Waramaug. On campus, we have numerous playing fields for football, soccer, field hockey, lacrosse, and baseball, and four clay and four all-weather tennis courts. The golf team practices and competes at the Washington Club two miles from campus.
