Important Update for Parents, Fans and Community Members Of The Gilbert School

While we are all looking forward to the beginning of the Gilbert athletic season, we must keep a cautious eye on the Covid-19 situation and take all necessary steps to prevent the spread of the virus. With that in mind, attendance at all games, meets, and events will be by personal invitation only. Specifically, only parents or legal guardians of student-athletes will be allowed to attend the contests. Your student-athlete will be given two tickets prior to each game. These tickets are only for parents and cannot be shared with students or siblings. The tickets will be specific to each contest.

Everyone in attendance must properly wear a mask and keep a proper distance from others (spouses not included). Those who do not follow these requests will be asked to leave. We ask that you understand these decisions are made in the interest of keeping our students and our community healthy and we appreciate your support of The Gilbert School Athletic Department. Please contact the Gilbert Athletic Director (morganb@gilbertschool.org) with any questions.

 

Notice on Covid-19 impact on Gilbert Athletics:  On March thirteenth, this year The Gilbert School was closed and our students began experiencing what distance learning was like. On that same day all athletic events and practices were put on hold. We here at The Gilbert school, our Superintendent, Principal and the CIAC are making every effort to make our 2020/2021 athletics as normal as possible. Be assured that every decision is made with the health and safety of our students, staff and family members being foremost on our minds. Stay informed on the most recent events by frequently visiting The Gilbert school Website and following our Facebook page.

 

 

The Gilbert School serves grades 7th through 12th and participates in Class S (Small School) interscholastic competition in the state of Connecticut. We offer 18 different sports programs at the high school level and nine different athletics opportunities at the middle-school level.

The Gilbert School is a member of the Berkshire League in which all interscholastic programs, except for football, compete in both regular season and post-season tournaments against nine other member schools. The football program is involved in a co-op with neighboring school Northwestern Regional High School. This program is branded with the name GN Football and competes in the Pequot Football Conference, a league comprised of 18 teams across the state. This co-op has been in existence for over 10 years and in the last four years, has finished near the top of the Pequot Conference, making it to the state semifinals, for example, in 2010. In 2013, GN Football took home the Pequot West Conference Championship.

Each season, roughly 35 to 40 percent of the student population is involved with an interscholastic athletics program, which does not include band, chorus or theater and drama. Overall, throughout the year, nearly 70 percent of the student body participates in an athletics program.
