The athletic program at The Ethel Walker School incorporates our holistic approach to educating young women. All students participate in activities or interscholastic sports for three seasons per year.
Interscholastic sports are offered at the Varsity, Junior Varsity and Middle School levels so that student athletes are appropriately challenged. Thirteen interscholastic sports are offered at Walker's: basketball, cross country, field hockey, golf, lacrosse, riding, skiing, soccer, softball, squash, swimming, tennis, and volleyball. Outside of the interscholastic realm, we offer outdoor adventure (comprised of rock climbing, hiking, paddling, biking), personal fitness, cross-fit, Zumba, yoga, and dance.
Walker’s is a member of the Founders League and competes against schools including: Choate Rosemary Hall, Hotchkiss, Kingswood-Oxford, Loomis Chaffee, Miss Porter’s, Taft and Westminster. Walker’s also participates in the Connecticut Independent School Athletic Conference (CISAC), which includes Chase Collegiate, Hamden Hall, MacDuffie, Westover and Williams. Our coaching staff has extensive experience, many of whom are former Division I, II, or III players. The Middle School program follows the same philosophy and includes basketball, dance, lacrosse, riding and soccer.
