Physical Education & Athletics "We respect our coaches and appreciate each other. We work together — every single day — toward a common goal. The lessons in discipline, time management, and sportsmanship I’ve learned on the field have made me a better student and a better person."
— Mike, junior
Moses Brown’s athletic and physical education programs bring students together in an environment that promotes camaraderie and honors the contributions of each athlete. We see our athletic fields and courts as an extension of the classroom — 25 faculty coaches teach specialized skills and emphasize the values of commitment, responsibility, and team work. Respect for individual strengths and differences, as well as opponents and officials, is integral to our program. Athletes work hard, take risks, contribute as a member of a team, trust, and win and lose with equal grace, dignity, and sportsmanship. Moreover, the athletic program allows students to build friendships and bonds that they may not develop otherwise.
Moses Brown is one of the few independent schools to offer opportunities for training in a majority of the team sports most commonly offered at the college level. Our teams include football, ice hockey, field hockey, soccer, cross country, tennis, squash, basketball, wrestling, swimming, baseball, softball, lacrosse, sailing, and golf. Some teams are coed.Quick facts:
