Athletics Facilities

Sidwell Friends' facilities support a broad and diverse physical education and athletics program. The highlight of the Wisconsin Avenue campus the 71,270-square-foot, state-of-the-art Athletic Center opened in fall 2010. Partially underground, the building is nonetheless filled with natural light from the glass windows that line the east-facing exterior wall. The Athletic Center features two full-size and four half-size basketball courts and plenty of seats from which to cheer on the Quakers. The building also features an indoor track, wrestling room, dance studio, athletic performance center with fitness equipment, athletic trainer’s office, and locker rooms. Learn about the building's many "green" features.

The Wisconsin Avenue campus also includes three athletic fields. A turf field on the roof of the Athletic Center is marked for football, lacrosse, and soccer. An additional turf field in front of the Upper School is marked for field hockey and girls lacrosse. A grass field in the campus's southeast corner is marked for soccer in the fall and baseball and softball in the spring.

Our Lower School campus includes a gymnasium, two playgrounds, a playing field, and outdoor courts.
