School Life

Athletics

Welcome from Chris Schmid, Athletics Director

The spirit of the scholar-athlete—those students who are equally achieving in academics and athletics—permeates D-E school culture. Our coaches, most of whom are academic faculty, help students become strong team players and effective leaders—both on the field and in the classroom. In this way, students develop character as much as physical skill. 

At Dwight-Englewood School, we teach the concept of good sportsmanship beginning in the Lower School, where young students develop gross motor skills and third-, fourth-, and fifth-graders enjoy co-ed intramural soccer, basketball, and baseball games. In the Middle School, in addition to a variety of sports, we introduce interscholastic competition. Physical education in the Upper School includes four years of coursework in lifetime fitness and two years of health.  A full list of all athletic teams is available from the "Team Pages" link above.

Concussion Protocol, NJSIAA Statement & Health/Medical Forms Reminder

D-E Concussion Protocol: 
If an athlete suffers a trauma to the head, or a blow to the body, resulting in their exhibiting symptoms of concussion, then the athlete will be removed from the game/practice. The athlete will then be referred to a physician who is trained in concussion management, for authorization to either resume immediate participation or begin a "return to play" protocol. Questions may be directed to the Athletics Director at: schmic@d-e.org.  

Statement RE: NJSIAA Steroid Testing (For Upper School Athletes Only)
NJSIAA steroid testing policy states that if an Upper School student athlete or students team qualifies for a state championship competition, the student may be subject to testing for banned substances.
