Athletics
The athletics program at Suffield is deeply rooted in our school’s mission—to provide every student an opportunity to cultivate talents and explore new interests in a structured, supportive setting. Suffield’s athletic programs encourage focus on self-discipline, teamwork, and intense effort. More importantly, athletics participation fosters a sense of identity and personal growth by giving all students a chance to learn lifelong lessons through team competition. Drew Gamere, Co-Director of Athletics
Suffield offers its students top-level athletic facilities. The Appleton H. Seaverns Athletic Center and the nine playing fields around campus support our programs. The Courtney Robinson ’88 Outdoor Leadership Center includes a 35-foot indoor rock climbing facility and outdoor high and low ropes courses. A turf field with lights was constructed in 2009, and in 2010 our indoor swimming pool was renovated and Tisch Field House opened—a beautiful 30,000-square-foot facility housing two courts for basketball, tennis, and volleyball; athletic offices; a training facility; and squash courts. The summer of 2012 saw additional renovations to the track and football field. A new rowing center and the Hillary Rockwell Cahn ’88 Balance Barn opened in 2015. In short, our athletic facilities are outstanding.
