Deerfield swimming and diving has a tradition of excellence. For more than 60 years, Deerfield has ranked among the very best in our division. For 17 consecutive years–from 1974 to 1990–our boys team won the New England Championships, and our girls team has won them for five consecutive years. We have had more than 300 All-American swimmers and divers over the years.
We are exceptionally proud of our swimmers and divers. The Deerfield Natatorium is an eight-lane, 25-yard facility, and we have a separate diving well with two one-meter boards and one three-meter board. Deerfield hosted the New England Preparatory Schools Swimming Championships in 1999 and 2000, and we look forward to hosting more such events at our facility.
