Seton Hall Prep has a longstanding tradition of excellence in athletics. Throughout its history, The Prep has acknowledged the place of athletics in our goal of developing a complete young man. While Seton Hall’s history of team championships and individual prowess is well known, equally important has been the role of athletics in the formation of character, the understanding of fair play and sportsmanship, and the acquisition of life-long interests, friendships and skills.

A hallmark of The Prep’s athletic program is the exceptional expertise and stability of our coaching staff. Our highly respected staff, in addition to the high regard they place on teaching and playing the game “the right way,” also takes great pride in the relationships established while playing for The Prep, ones that have lasted for decades following a student’s graduation.

The Prep community is duly proud of the more than 340 state, conference and county championships garnered over the past half century. The history of the athletic program is one of high achievement and high expectations— of and from coaches, athletes and fans—all of which contribute to making The Prep’s one of the most respected athletic programs in New Jersey.

As members of the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association, the New Jersey Independent Schools Association, the Super Essex Conference, the North Jersey Interscholastic Ice Hockey League, the New Jersey Interscholastic Lacrosse League, the North Jersey Bowling League, and the New Jersey Catholic Track Conference, our schedules provide the students with the best possible competition among both public and private schools throughout the state of New Jersey.

Reflecting the important place athletics holds in the students’ development and interests, approximately 70% of the student body includes participation in our athletic program as part of their Prep Experience. Supporting that experience, The Prep offers competition in 15 sports, most with associated sub-varsity levels: Baseball (V,JV,F), Basketball (V,JV,F), Bowling (V,JV), Cross-Country (V,JV,F), Football (V,JV,F), Golf (V), Ice Hockey (V,JV), Indoor Track (V,JV,F), Lacrosse (V,JV,F), Outdoor Track (V,JV,F), Rifle (V) Soccer (V,JV,F), Swimming (V,JV), Tennis (V,JV), Wrestling (V,JV,F)

In addition to the athletic facilities located on the Northfield Avenue campus, the nearby Edward D. and Helen M. Kelly Athletic Complex is the site of the Bill Persichetty 400-meter all-weather track, the Frank Gagliano Cross-Country Course, the Charlie Lorenzo ’50 Training Facility, as well as lacrosse and soccer competition and practice fields.
