LEADERSHIP

ATHLETICS

O’Dowd’s championship athletic program engages over 700 student-athletes, across 15 sports and 48 teams, in the joy of competitive play. Our seasoned coaches, expert athletic trainers, and sport-specific strength and conditioning strategies engage Dragon athletes to rise to the challenge of leadership, not just on the court or field, but in the broader community. Every year, through the collective support of our academic and athletic staff, 20-30 of our student-athletes go on to play at the college level. Our state-of-the-art athletic facilities include an NBA regulation size court, a best-in-class athletic performance lab, and seating for over 1,300 cheering fans.
