Athletics at Porter's

Athletics are a fundamental part of the overall educational experience at Miss Porter's School.  The athletic program strives to teach students physical and mental skills, self-discipline, and sportsmanship while motivating athletes to strive for excellence. We believe the value of participation is lifelong and that the team experience builds foundational skills of leadership, teamwork, competition, commitment, integrity, and achievement.

Athletics at Porter's are competitive and require a level of commitment above and beyond other after school activities. At the varsity level in particular, the most capable and committed athletes constitute teams. In doing so, these teams aim to refine athletic skills to compete at an advance level and excel in competitions.  All athletes are expected to promote and demonstrate respect, resilience, courage, patience, and commitment to their teammates and with adults.

Porter's competes in the Founders League with Choate Rosemary Hall, Ethel Walker, Hotchkiss, Kent, Kingswood-Oxford, Loomis Chaffee, Taft and Westminster schools. At the end of each season, Porter's competes against the area's most competitive teams in the New England Championships.

  • Athlete of the Week: Adi Jalinskas '18

    This week's athlete of the week is Adi Jalinskas '18 from varsity field hockey.

    Jalinskas '18 has been a model captain and teammate this season. She persists in the face of adversity, loves to train hard, and her favorite days are the ones where she is pushed to work the hardest. She rallies her teammates with her positivity and her competitive drive. We love to witness her sprint ahead to keep a ball in bounds or her quick hand-eye coordination whenever there is an opportunity to tip it in.
     
    Jalinskas '18 was chosen to play in the Western New England Prep School All-Star game, and she led her team to a 4-0 victory, posting 2 of the goals! Arguably, this made her the game's most valuable player. In the face of such amazing competition, it was fantastic to see her create and capitalize on the opportunities to score. Congratulations to the Athlete of the Week, Adi Jalinskas '18.
