Athletics

We’re not just a team. We’re a band of brothers.

Our student-athletes range from lifelong players to novices — everyone plays sports at their level of experience and ability. The Pride competes in the Founders League, a highly competitive prep-school arena where student-athletes are prepared for college-level competition. College recruiters consider the league to be a prime source for spotting some of the nation's best prep-school talent.

Trinity-Pawling coaches are well-respected throughout New England, and they follow leading research and best practices for training and supporting our scholar-athletes. They motivate each player to dig deep in practices, training, games, and most importantly, in the classroom. Whether a boy is a recruited athlete or new to the sport, being part of a team at Trinity-Pawling is a life-changing experience.

Yes, we play to win, but to win with the highest character. At Trinity-Pawling, sports teach us about success and failure; leadership and sacrifice; how to find serious stamina and resilience when faced with a challenge. On or off the field, we strive for teamwork.
