Simply put, we relishour athletic facilities for their character. After all, Boston’s commuter rail runs just beyond the third base line of ourbaseball diamond and an iconic Boston sports mural sets the backdrop for our football field. Our urban campus allows us to flex our creativity and ingenuity when designing where our student-athletes train before and after school.
In the most innovative way possible, we set out to maximize every inch of every facility. Turf playing surfaces, both outside and indoor, allow student-athletes to train in any condition at any time of the year. Strong partnerships with colleges and athletic facilities across the Greater Boston area afford our teams the resources needed to host competitions in a highly competitive Catholic Conference.
To keep our student-athletes active on these facilities, we introduced a state-of-the-art Health & Wellness Center. The centergives them the means to prevent, and recover from, injuries sustained in practice or in games.
