About Lauralton Athletics
Lauralton Hall is a member of the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC), the body that governs all high school athletics in the state and follows the rules of the National Federation of High School Sports. As part of the Southern Connecticut Conference, we compete with member schools in Bethel, Brookfield, Bunnell, Immaculate, Joel Barlow, Kolbe Cathedral, Masuk, New Fairfield, New Milford, Notre Dame, Oxford, Pomperaug, Stratford, and Weston.
The Lauralton Hall Athletic Department's mission is to provide a comprehensive, diverse, wholesome and dynamic athletic program, consistent with the basic philosophy and mission of Lauralton Hall. As an integral part of a student's total education, Lauralton Hall athletics makes a significant contribution to the personal growth and development of those involved.
Lauralton Hall is extremely proud of the success of our many programs, but we do not condone a "win at all costs" attitude. The purpose of the athletic program, which includes highly competitive varsity teams, is to ensure a positive experience for those students who choose to participate and to provide student-athletes with an opportunity to learn the importance of ethical behavior, good sportsmanship, positive values and a realization of their self-worth.
The Lauralton Hall Athletic Department staff is made up of professionals who take great pride in their strong concern for the welfare of each athlete. They are cognizant of the tremendous influence of their position and strive to instill the highest ideals and character traits in our students.
The Athletic Handbook
To better understand what is at the heart of Lauralton’s athletic program, and what is expected of student-athletes and their parents, students and parents are required to read the Parent/Student Athlete Handbook and sign both the Parent/Student Athlete Handbook Agreement and the Interscholastic Sports Permission Form. By signing these forms the athlete and her parents agree that the rules and regulation of Lauralton athletics have been read and understood. We all represent Lauralton and our behavior and attitude on and off the field should exemplify and reflect the Lauralton commitment to respecting others and embodying good sportsmanship.
A completed and signed Health Assessment Record Form and a completed and signed Interscholastic Sports Permission Form and the Parent/Student Athlete Handbook Agreement are required by each student-athlete prior to trying out for or participating on a team.
College Athletic Recruiting
For student-athletes who want to continue athletic competition at the next level, the Athletic and Guidance departments are here to help students reach their goals. We encourage them to begin their college search as early as possible. The Athletic Department recommends visiting the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) website. Students interested in playing Division I or II in college must be certified by the NCAA Eligibility Center. The necessary forms can be found in the Guidance department.
