Every boy in our Lower, Middle and Upper Schools is required to participate in daily sports — varsity, club or intramural — to stay physically fit and learn about the value of teamwork, fair play, perseverance and healthy living.
Landon has a 75-acre campus with state-of-the-art facilities such as our Barton Alumni Athletic Center, which includes two gymnasiums, a wrestling room, and a 5,500 square foot strength and conditioning area that features almost 9,000 pounds of weights.
Outside, we have a turf field with a track renovated in 2016, four grass fields, 10 outdoor tennis courts, two baseball fields, an outdoor swimming pool, two miles of cross country trails, and a riflery range. Our reigning Interstate Athletic Conference (IAC) champion ice hockey team skates at the Bears’ Den at Rockville Ice Arena. We also have two full-time athletic trainers on staff.
Landon has a storied history of athletics success. Our varsity teams have brought home 189 IAC championships, and our athletes often go on to compete at the collegiate level — we have had more than 160 boys play NCAA athletics over the past decade, including 59 in the last three years, and 15 members of the Class of 2017 have already committed to compete at the next level.
Upper School Offerings
We offer 23 athletics options in the Upper School: 20 interscholastic sports (some of which have varsity, junior varsity and freshman teams), winter intramurals, and midday fitness and after-school strength and conditioning classes that teach the keys to physical fitness.

Middle School Offerings
In the Middle School, you will choose from 12 interscholastic sports, some of which (football, basketball, baseball and lacrosse) have grade-specific teams. Intramural options such as water polo, strength and conditioning, and street hockey are also available. In addition, all Form II boys participate in a health-and-wellness class that meets once per eight-day cycle to teach the value of physical well-being, nutrition, safety and exercise.

Lower School Offerings
Third and fourth graders choose either football or soccer in the fall and then rotate through a cycle in the winter and spring to sample six different sports. In Grade 5, boys can continue to participate in intramurals or choose to compete against other schools in one interscholastic sport per season.
