While academics are our primary concern, Lyndon Institute recognizes that athletics provide additional opportunities and challenges for personal growth and development. Through competition, students learn the value of discipline and respect for rules. Athletics become a model for good citizenship.

At Lyndon Institute, we pride ourselves on our ability to offer a wide range of athletic opportunities. We have 28 varsity level teams in 17 sports. Student athletes of all abilities are encouraged to participate.

A recent article posted to the website states that Lyndon is one of only six American boarding schools to offer interscholastic Alpine Skiing, Nordic Skiing, and Ice Hockey teams, according to The Association of Boarding Schools (TABS).”
LI Alpine coach John (JK) Kresser is an example of the trend at the top boarding schools where the schools are choosing “the very best coaches for their winter sports teams”. Coach Kresser is a former coach with the U.S. Women’s slalom and giant slalom teams.
“Student-athletes benefit in many ways from being a part of the program,” says John. “It all begins with the upkeep and organization of the equipment involved with the sport.  There are many components to remember and maintain on a daily basis. This is a large part of an athlete’s potential success.”
He adds: “Alpine skiing is a unique sport in that you actually compete against teammates. We strongly emphasize the team concept while each athlete strives to bring out their best skiing. Our training emphasizes personal growth rather than comparisons. The mountains are a great place to grow, develop and learn to appreciate the outdoors.”
In addition to Ice Hockey, Alpine and Nordic Skiing, Lyndon Institute offers their students the opportunity to participate on interscholastic teams in Indoor Track, Basketball, and Cheerleading.
