Athletics

Welcome

The athletics program at Gonzaga plays an indispensable role in our mission of educating the whole person—mind, body, and spirit. 
During a typical year, more than 80 percent of our students participate in at least one sport each year, providing mental and physical benefits, but also opportunities to learn accountability, dedication, teamwork, and leadership.

Unfortunately, the 2020-2021 school year is not a typical year, with the WCAC suspending all athletic competition until January due to the coronavirus pandemic. While our teams cannot compete, they are still meeting often virtually to train and build community. We are also looking to add team workouts in the near future. In the interim, we have created this page, where you can find out more information about the sports we offer and contact information for all of our coaches. We will continue to update this page as more information becomes available.

Thank you for your interest in Gonzaga Athletics! Eagles Fly High!

Sincerely,

Joe Reyda
Director of Athletics

Why play sports at Gonzaga?

List of 3 items.

  • Life Lessons

    The coaching staff at Gonzaga stresses competing with character--sportsmanship, teamwork, resilience, and humility are just some of the values that the young men of Eye Street learn and experience through sports.
  • 17 Sports

    The Gonzaga athletic department is home to 17 different sports, with a combined 41 teams at the Varsity, Junior Varsity, and Freshmen levels. And with no-cut sports such as Cross Country, Swimming, and Rugby, there’s a place for everyone who wants to play.
  • A Winning Tradition

    Gonzaga—which competes in the WCAC—offers one of the strongest athletic programs in the area. Our teams consistently earn banners and win championships, and our players frequently earn recognition as All-League and Washington Post All-Met athletes. Many even receive national honors and college scholarships.
