Deerfield swimming and diving has a tradition of excellence. For more than 60 years Deerfield has ranked among the very best in our division. Our girls team has won the New England Championship multiple times, most recently in 2016. 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.
