Athletic Offerings

Athletic Offerings beginning for the 2018-19 Academic Year:

  • The 2018-19 school year will be the final year for Water Polo. In addition, the Spring of 2018 will be the final regular season for Track (we will not compete in Field events); Track will be an option for a smaller and more select group of competitive runners in the spring of 2019.
These necessary changes are not only in line with the expectations of our peer schools but also in support of Canterbury’s tradition of a strong and successful athletic program. We look forward to all that lies ahead for Canterbury Athletics and welcome your follow-up questions. Go Saints!
