Athletics & Riding



Chatham Hall devotes 100% of its athletic resources to girls.

Athletics and physical wellness are an essential part of the development of the whole girl here. We encourage you to choose courage over comfort and both continue to develop in the sports you love and try new ones: you'll get to train, play, and contribute at whichever level is right for you.

In addition to serving as a team captain or manager, student-athletes also have the opportunity to lead through the Chatham Athletic Council which has been spreading School spirit and purple and gold pride since 1931.

Chatham Hall competes in the Blue Ridge Athletic Conference (BRAC) and the Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association (VISAA).
