Cross Country - Boys & Girls
Head Coach: Darren Redman
Tilton’s Cross Country team accommodates both advanced, highly competitive runners and the first-time runner new to team sports. Tilton School’s Cross Country Teams competes in the Lakes Region League of the New England Prep School Athletic Council (NEPSAC). The season consists of 6 or 7 races, one or two of which are hosted at Tilton School.  In addition to the Lakes Region Championships, Tilton runners also have the opportunity to compete in the NEPSAC Division III Championships.


Field Hockey
Head Coach: Chapel Love
The Tilton School field hockey team competes in the Lakes Region League of the NEPSAC Class C Division, playing  a full 16-game schedule within and outside of the Lakes Region League. The program attracts a dedicated group of girls with depth and endurance, and who show determination and enthusiasm for field hockey. Tilton’s Field Hockey team practices and plays on Burch Field, the school’s artificial turf facility opened in 2014. This lighted complex offers athletes one of the best home field experiences in all of New England.


Varsity Football
Head Coach: Vinny Giambrocco
Football at Tilton School plays an eight-game varsity schedule in the competitive Evergreen League. Tilton players enjoy pushing themselves and each other in an effort to reach our goals. The football program prides itself on having hard-nosed, hard-hitting athletes. The coaching staff expects its players to be leaders in all areas of school life, and believes that players learn many valuable life lessons from participating in football: sportsmanship, teamwork, determination and dedication.  


Mountain Biking
Head Coach: Adam Lesser
Tilton School mountain biking program is a coed, competitive sport within the nine-team Lakes Region Mountain Biking League. The team races weekly on trails located throughout New England.  All riders are encouraged to develop their own skills by providing a safe and nurturing environment, and welcoming all levels of riding to join the team.

Each fall Tilton hosts a race at nearby Highland Mountain Bike Park in Northfield, N.H.  Highland allows riders to have exposure to a college-level cross-country course and other styles of biking that the park offers. Tilton School has an official partnership with Highland Mountain and created the Tilton at Highland program.  Learn more about our Tilton at Highland Program!  

JV Boys’ Soccer
Head Coach: Merrick Smith
As an essential component to Tilton School’s soccer program, the JV boys’ soccer team focuses on the development of technical proficiency. Using the same basic team tactics as the  varsity program, the JV program enables players to take their skills next level. The team plays a competitive schedule, including games every Wednesday and Saturday throughout the fall season against schools throughout New Hampshire, Maine, and Vermont.

JV B’ Boys Soccer
The Tilton School Boys’ JV B soccer team offers athletes the opportunity to be a part of Tilton School’s soccer program regardless of prior playing experience.  The supportive team environment allows athletes to learn the game and practice their skills daily. Working hand-in-hand with the other boys’ soccer teams, the JV B team offers our athletes more opportunity to grow both athletically as they learn to be part of a team.

Boys’ Varsity Soccer
Head Coach: Scott Ruggles
Tilton Varsity Boys’ soccer team currently plays in the New England Prep School Soccer Association (NEPSSA), a division of the NEPSAC. The team’s schedule is considered the most rigorous among schools with similar size enrollment. This level of competition allows players to prepare and showcase their abilities for college programs at the Division I, II, and III levels.  In addition, the team recently joined the Western New England Prep School Soccer Association (WNEPSSA), the oldest prep school soccer organization in the United States. Being a member of WNEPSSA increases the exposure for our student-athletes and the program as a whole. It is the team’s goal each year to develop as individuals, but more importantly as a team, and to compete to the highest level possible.


Girls’ Varsity Soccer
Head Coach: Colin Kuusisto
During the past several seasons, Tilton Girls’ Soccer team has established itself as one of the premier Class D teams in the NEPSAC. The team’s goal is to develop a program that will compete each year to be the best small school girls' soccer team in New England. This is accomplished by striving to create a competitive practice atmosphere and by challenging players to improve on a daily basis. The parallel goal is to assist players in becoming excellent student-athletes in the classroom and on the field, while preparing them to play at the collegiate level once they graduate.
