About TGS Athletics
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.
