Athletics

Gill St. Bernard's School has a proud tradition of athletic excellence throughout its history. Athletics play an integral part of the overall educational experience of our students, reinforcing our core values of courage, integrity, respect, compassion, and excellence through competition, practice, and team-play. During these times of social distancing, our coaches and staff remain committed to the overall health and development of our student-athletes, and we eagerly await their return to the playing fields.

At GSB, our athletes are ambassadors of the school, expected to conduct themselves with honor, integrity, and sportsmanship at all times.
