To foster physical fitness, sportsmanship, and teamwork, The Woodhall School has an athletic and activities program six days a week in which all students participate. The program is intended to provide students with the physical activity necessary to maintain a sound mind and spirit. The program encourages discipline and structure through organized practices and fosters sportsmanship and enjoyment during competitive play. The school offers both competitive interscholastic and intramural sports. Our mascot is the Phoenix.

All athletes must follow The Woodhall School Athletic Code of Conduct. Respect for coaches, teammates, athletes of other teams, and officials, is the benchmark for The Woodhall School Athletic Program. This approach demands integrity and accountability.





The varsity teams compete in games, meets, and tournaments, with neighboring independent schools in Connecticut and New York, an average of twice per week during the season.  Additionally, Outdoor Education – which focuses on hiking, canoeing, rock climbing, and survival skills – has placed in white water canoe races on the Housatonic and Naugatuck Rivers.

Drama is considered part of the athletics and activities program, Known as The Woodhall Players, the Drama group stages two productions a year in The Abigail J. Woodhall Performing Arts Center, and competes in the Seven Angels Theatre Halo Awards.
