The Trevor Athletics Program emphasizes sportsmanship, teamwork, and individual growth. A large percentage of Trevor students participate in our interscholastic athletic program, which complements and enhances their education. Trevor’s passionate coaches, many of whom also teach in the classroom, help impart lessons that are key to athletic participation: self-confidence, cooperation, the power of hard work, and commitment. Trevor Day School is a member of the New York City Athletic League (NYCAL), and many of our teams and student-athletes are award-winning competitors at the league, city and state level.

Trevor offers eight teams for boys and nine for girls in Middle School. With an innovative PE/Athletics schedule, 75% of Middle School students participated in at least one team in 2016–17. At the Junior Varsity and Varsity levels, Trevor also offers eight teams for boys and nine teams for girls. Fifty-seven percent of Upper School students participated on at least one athletics team in 2016–17.
Most teams will have two coaches, however there are instances where that number is adjusted based on the sport and/or enrollment. Each coach is certified by the American Red Cross CPR/AED - Adult plus Child and Infant CPR (or equivalent) and completes the Head's Up Concussion Certification bi-annually.

  • Upper School Fall Teams Summer Schedule

    Upper School teams begin their season towards the end of summer in accordance with NYSAIS start dates. It is imperative to begin at this time to allow teams and individuals to achieve the required number of practices before a student-athlete may compete in a scrimmage or contest, as well as to prepare for the highly competitive season to come. Students that miss the start of the fall athletic season will jeopardize their standing on the team and could prevent them from being eligible to participate in scrimmages and contests until the NYSAIS standard is met. Middle School school athletes are not required to attend any practices before the start of the academic school year. Any Middle School athletic practices that take place before the start of school are entirely optional. Below you will find the start dates that have been established as well as the MS and HS Sports Standards.

    Upper School Fall Start Dates
    Fall 2018 - August 20
    Fall 2019 - August 16 (Tentative)
    Fall 2020 - August 15 (Tentative)
    Fall 2021 - August 20 (Tentative)

  • NYSAISAA Sports Standards

    Trevor Day is a member in good standing of the New York State Association of Independent Schools Athletic Association (NYSAISAA) that serves as the authority in the supervision and guidance of the interscholastic athletic activities of its member schools in New York State. Trevor elects to join the Federation List, which means we abide by the Commissioner’s Regulation as it pertains to athletics in order to compete with member schools in the NYSPHSAA, CHSAA, and the PSAL and agrees to abide by all the state by-laws, rules and regulations.
  • Sportsmanship Statement

    Trevor promotes good sportsmanship by student-athletes, coaches and spectators.  All efforts of the players, coaches and officials should be met by cheering in a positive manner.  At no time should spectators speak to participants, coaches or officials while at an athletic event.  Any racial/ethnic slurs, personal insults, profanity, fighting or other inappropriate behavior will not be tolerated and are grounds for removal from the site of competition.  Games should be competitive but, above all, fun and friendly for everyone.
  • Supplements and the Trevor Athlete

    Some athletes use supplements to try and replenish the body. While some supplements might be beneficial, the entire supplement category is NOT REGULATED by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Companies are able to put products on the market that could have potential harmful ingredients. The FDA states that the manufacturer is responsible for ensuring the safety of the product, however much of the testing is done by the manufacturer itself not an independent third party.

    We at Trevor strongly suggest that before any student-athlete puts anything that is unregulated into their body, they consult their doctor.

Coaches also have the ability to adjust their practice at any time, but cannot exceed the restrictions that have been placed by the Certified Athletic Trainer. Trevor adheres to the following guidelines for Wind Chill and Heat Index.
    In addition, in the event of thunder and/or lightning all outdoor practices/contests will be immediately suspended. When thunder is heard or lightning is seen all athletes, coaches, officials, spectators, etc should immediately seek shelter in either a building or a vehicle with a solid metal top (i.e. car, van, bus).
