Athletics

Commonwealth's sports program aims to offer the excitement of competition to those who want it and the fun of exerting oneself to all.

All students, from grades 9 through 12, are eligible for all activities, varsity or recreational. Teams practice at nearby fields and facilities, to which our students walk, run, or ride when classes are over. Students must participate in the fall and winter seasons, three days a week after school. Whether the reward is a trophy or a lifelong habit of exercise, we see sports as an important route to self-knowledge and pride.

Schedules for the fall 2021 season can be found here. Additional information regarding athletic venues and their health and safety protocols can be found here

Independent Sports

Students with serious commitments to activities outside of school—such as nationally ranked figure skaters, competitive wrestlers, and ballet dancers—may be eligible to fulfill their athletics requirement through an independent sports credit. Independent sports applications are due prior to the start of the school year (students receive the independent sports application directly from the Director of Athletics).
