Athletic Requirements and Philosophy

Athletics have been central to the educational philosophy at Oldfields for more than a century. In fact, Oldfields was one of the first girls' schools to pioneer an athletic program in 1878. In keeping with the School's philosophy and mission, Oldfields athletics emphasizes the value of each individual and respect for others. We stress teamwork, sportsmanship, personal commitment, reachable goal setting, and an appreciation for lifetime activity.

Each student is required to be involved in athletic activity on campus for each of the three seasons. Involvement can be in the form of a team sport, riding, or co-curricular offerings in dance, theater, fitness and conditioning, or yoga. All offerings meet five days a week and are considered regular school commitments. Every student must participate in at least one team sport each academic year.

At Oldfields, we believe that the lessons and skills learned on the playing field enrich a student in the academic classroom, in the dormitory, and in a girl's adult life. We are proud that all of our girls at Oldfields are scholar athletes. Healthy competition that welcomes athletes of all abilities helps build a strong school spirit and plays a large role in ensuring each girl's success.
