OFFICIAL FOUNDERS LEAGUE ANNOUNCEMENT
June 28, 2021
The Heads of the Founders League schools agree that vaccination is our surest means to mitigate the risk of infection and spread of the SARS-CoV2-virus. In order to return to a full schedule of contests among Founders League schools for the 2021–22 school year, the Heads agree that all Founders League student-athletes, coaches, and trainers must be fully vaccinated in order to participate.
Those who have been granted an exemption for medical or religious reasons will be permitted to participate following state and federal guidance but will be required to show a negative PCR test taken within 48 hours prior to competition and will be required to be masked for indoor competition.
Avon Old Farms School welcomes all visitors/spectators for athletic competitions. We do ask that all visitors/spectators adhere to Governor Lamont's Executive Order that states everyone must wear masks regardless of vaccination status while inside school buildings. Thank you for helping to keep our community safe and healthy.
Winged Beavers compete at the highest level.
Our teams compete in the prestigious Founders League alongside Choate, Hotchkiss, Kent, Loomis Chaffee, Kingswood-Oxford, Taft, Trinity-Pawling, and Westminster.Our teams have won more than 30 league and New England championships combined over the last 15 years, and many of our athletes move on to compete for some of the nation’s foremost collegiate programs. At the same time, we ensure that an athletic experience is accessible to and enjoyed by all our students by offering more than 24 sub-varsity teams and intramural activities. The lessons learned on the field, court, or rink help boys understand what it means to contribute to something larger than themselves, and they mature in the process.
The Winged Beaver, reflects the school’s motto Aspirando et Perseverando, which translates into aspiring and persevering. The wings of aspiration represent the soaring flight of an eagle and perseverance is symbolized in the relentless effort of a beaver.
