For many ninth graders, the opportunity to shine as leaders on our varsity teams is a highlight of their ninth grade experience. Younger players look up to their ninth grade teammates, and Fay’s experienced varsity coaches—who are attuned to the specific needs of this age group—call upon ninth graders to serve as role models, on and off the field.
Ninth graders can take full advantage of Fay’s exceptional athletic facilities, which include ten full-size fields, an indoor turf field, a baseball diamond and a softball diamond with three batting cages, four basketball courts, two fitness centers, eight tennis courts, an outdoor ice rink and ropes course, and an indoor rock climbing wall.
Every ninth grader participates in at least one team sport during the year. Students can choose from 20 sports, including baseball, basketball, cross-country, field hockey, football, golf, ice hockey, lacrosse, skiing/snowboarding, soccer, softball, squash, tennis, track and field, volleyball, and wrestling, as well as our on-campus intramural athletic options, fitness, dance, and outdoor adventure.
