The athletics program at Gonzaga plays an indispensable role in our mission of educating the whole person—mind, body, and spirit.
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.
In addition, coaches at Gonzaga are held to a high standard. We encourage all parents and students to review the Coach's Handbook to understand the responsibilities of coaches and the rights of student-athletes.

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.
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.
