Berkshire student-athletes proudly wear our Green & Gray. With 17 sports and teams at the varsity, junior varsity, and thirds level, there’s an opportunity for every student to be involved. Students often discover new interests and talents by trying a sport they may have never played before. Whether students are competing at the highest level or exploring something new, they spend invaluable time with teammates to experience camaraderie, new friendships, and create lifelong memories.
Our athletic program’s goal is to foster leadership skills, self-confidence, and commitment to others. Through practice, training, and competition, our students gain a strong appreciation for teamwork, sportsmanship, and perseverance—traits that are transferable to every aspect of their lives. Berkshire competes in the highly competitive New England Preparatory School Athletic Council which includes Choate, Hotchkiss, Taft, Loomis, Deerfield, Salisbury, Kent, Avon, and Westminster, among others. Athletic contests take place on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons.
The excellence of our athletic program is evident by the number of Berkshire student-athletes who have gone on to play at Division I and Division III colleges and universities. In the past three years, over 100 athletes have left Berkshire to continue to compete at the next level.
