“On the Hilltop, we have a rich tradition of athletic competition dating back to the School’s founding in 1901. Our founding headmaster, George E. Quaile, believed it was just as important for boys to develop their bodies as it was to develop their minds.”tim sinclair '91, director of athletics

World Class Athletic Facilities
Salisbury is fortunate to offer you superb indoor and outdoor space for athletic and fitness activities. In addition, our athletic training staff works in collaboration with both the Athletic Department and Health Services.
The athletic trainers evaluate all athletic injuries and determine athletic status using consultation with the director of health services and the school physician when necessary.
Salisbury School is one of the best-equipped sports boarding schools in Connecticut, with extensive indoor and outdoor facilities located on a 725-acre main campus.
Expansive facilities are only one part of our commitment to you, as a student athlete. Our coaches and advisors work closely with students, often taking on a mentoring role that is invaluable to your interpersonal and academic development.
Joseph Meehan, an internationally recognized photographer, writer and teacher for over 40 years, has been shooting Salisbury’s varsity athletic teams for ten years. Joe is a “regular” at home games and often travels to shoot championship play-off games.
Joseph Meehan's photography style has been characterized by the New York Times as “…alive with color and sparkling with light.” Thousands of his photographs have been featured in books, magazines, and on websites world-wide and he is the author of 30 books on photography. The School is very pleased to display his work on our photo gallery site, SmugMug. Proceeds from the purchase of Joe's athletic photos benefit Salisbury's Athletic Department. Please also visit www.josephmeehan.com to view his complete portfolio.
Good sportsmanship; A Valued Tradition
A Salisbury team is expected to be magnanimous in victory and gracious in defeat. A victory by a winning team or squad is often applauded at school meetings.
