Welcome to Wheeler Athletics
The collaborative spirit that is present in our classrooms is right at home on the playing field.  Our students learn the value of competition and collaboration early, so when they step out on the field, court or course they already know what it takes to win - and have the abilities to do so.  Our post-season honors underscore these talents.

The Middle School athletic program provides students with the opportunity to compete in interscholastic athletics, offering eleven sports for boys and girls. The Upper School athletic program is comprised of 24 interscholastic teams for boys and girls: soccer, tennis, field hockey, cross country, basketball, squash, lacrosse, track & field, softball, baseball, and golf; and three cooperative teams, football, ice hockey and swimming with PCD.

Team pages exist for all three sports seasons.  Current season is under the 2015-16 school year drop down. To see team pages for past seasons and school years, use the school year drop down.
