We offer 21 interscholastic programs at the Varsity level, with many of those having sub-varsity level teams. In addition, we have 10 non-competitive, non-interscholastic programs offered throughout the year.
Cheshire Academy is a member of the New England Prep School Athletic Conference and based on enrollment competes at the Class B level for Boys and the Class C level for the Girls. We compete against boarding and day schools within our greater region, as well as throughout the Western portion of New England.
Cheshire Academy features a multi-purpose turf field, a six-lane track, three multipurpose grass playing fields, baseball and softball fields, a two-court basketball & volleyball gymnasium, a 50M six-lane pool, a challenge course, and a comprehensive weight room and athletic training facility.
We are staffed full-time with two Certified Athletic Trainers who cover our home games and work with athletes on their rehabilitation programs, as well as offer general strength and conditioning support to athletes.
We encourage students to try something new and give it a shot. Many sports have tryouts for the varsity team, but our numbers generally allow a spot for all who are interested at the sub-varsity levels.
Competitive team sports are an important part of the Cheshire Academy experience and teach life skills like teamwork, good sportsmanship, and commitment. It doesn’t matter how good you are at a sport, or if you’re a new player, all that matters is that you show up for your teammates and give the game your all!
We have entered into an All School Agreement with Under Armour to outfit all of our Varsity teams in Under Armour uniforms. As of the 2015-2016 school year, all Varsity programs wear Under Armour. We also offer plenty of Under Armour products in our School Store.
