“Champions aren't made in the gyms.
Champions are made from something they have deep inside them
- a desire, a dream, a vision.”
Welcome to Chester Academy, Home of the Hambletonians! Participation on an athletic team can be rewarding and include meaningful educational experiences that enhance a student’s education. It is important that students and parents realize the time demands, responsibility, dedication and sacrifices required when making commitments. Here at Chester Academy, we offer a variety of interscholastic sports teams at the modified, junior varsity, and varsity levels. Our athletic programs strive to develop scholar–athletes who succeed academically and athletically.
On our web page, you will find additional resources regarding Chester Athletics including: Athletic News, Athlete of the Month, the Athletic Schedule Calendar, MSG Varsity, OCIAA, Section IX Athletics, Directions to Athletic Events, the Chester Varsity Club Store, Selective Classification, and Concussion Management. Below you will see past accomplishments and highlights of Chester Athletics.
I look forward to seeing you at our athletic events throughout the year, together, as we continue to support our student-athletes who wear the Blue and Orange of the Chester Academy Hambletonians.
