At St. Paul’s School, athletics are much more than an extracurricular activity. They are a fully integrated part of the SPS experience, providing opportunities for leadership, learning and personal growth for student athletes of all ability levels and interests. 

Sportsmanship, respect and kindness are at the core of our coaching and playing, whether at the club, junior varsity or varsity team level. These values, along with teamwork, personal excellence, humility and courage, are incredibly important to our community, and we seek to demonstrate them at all times, whether as guests at another school or as hosts to our competitors.

SPS is a Class A/Division I member of the New England Preparatory School Council (NEPSAC) as well as the Lakes Region League in New Hampshire and also competes within the Eight Schools Association.
