At Westtown, we play to win, but our athletic program does so much more. The required athletic program plays a significant role in shaping students’ personal growth. Because athletics is an integral part of Westtown's educational program, students are expected to strive for and achieve high standards, just as in the classroom.
We require interscholastic competition for all 7th and 8th Graders and Upper School students, providing a range of offerings so that everyone is challenged and successful. Westtown’s exceptional athletic facilities—a state-of-the-art Athletic Center with 5 courts and a 160 meter indoor track, 14 tennis courts, 2 cross country courses, 10 playing fields including one softball and two baseball diamonds, and an all-weather track—support the development of generations of talented athletes.
Every student benefits from our strong, wide-ranging athletic program which includes 21 varsity teams and multiple levels. Westtown has a place for everyone, whether that person is a varsity-level athlete, someone who simply thrives on competition, or a newcomer to competitive sports. Respect for coaches, teammates, officials and opponents is essential as Westtown athletes aspire to achieve individual and team goals.
You’ll learn to perfect your skills, keep your body in great condition, be a good sport, and boost your team. As you take positive risks and reach toward your athletic goals, you’ll gain the discipline and self-confidence that carries you through league games, championships, and beyond.
Winning and losing are intrinsic to athletics, and both provide opportunities for growth and improvement. Every team member is valued. Games, meets, matches and performances bring the community together.
