The Canterbury girls’ lacrosse program competes in the highly competitive Western New England Prep School Lacrosse Association (WNEPSLA), competing against schools in the A, B, and C Divisions. After capturing the Class C title in both 2013 and 2014, Canterbury petitioned and was awarded a Class B ranking.
Over the course of the programs history, student-athletes from Canterbury have continued their lacrosse careers at the Division I, II, and III levels. Canterbury offers a JV program for those individuals new to the game and a varsity program for those skilled athletes who are prepared to compete at a higher level. Canterbury School values the lessons learned by those individuals who compete in interscholastic athletics and thus strives to encourage students to push themselves both physically and mentally through competition. The girls’ lacrosse program works to instill the importance of character building through sport.
