Athletics Program Overview
The athletics program at Berkeley Carroll promotes lifetime fitness, sportsmanship, leadership, and a sense of responsibility. By becoming a member of a team, student-athletes develop discipline and focus. They grow in self-understanding, feel joy in their activities, and develop an appreciation for competition and teamwork. The athletic abilities and personal growth skills our student athletes develop follow them into college and adulthood and serve them for a lifetime.
Our athletic facilities include a four-lane, 75-foot swimming pool, two full-size gyms, a mezzanine area for fitness and strength-training, and two play yards.
Lower and Middle School students participate in intramural and after school sports programs, including tennis, fencing, swimming, soccer, judo, bowling, and gymnastics. Every effort is made to ensure playing time and the appreciation of individual effort, regardless of developing skill level.
Interscholastic sports competition begins in 7th grade, with the school fielding close to 40 teams in volleyball, soccer, cross country, basketball, track and field, baseball and softball. While continuing to emphasize participation, enjoyment, and instruction, interscholastic contests are scheduled with peer institutions (Saint Ann's, Packer Collegiate, Poly Prep, Collegiate, Brooklyn Friends, UNIS among others), allowing development of teamwork, healthy competition and sportsmanship.
