La Salle Athletics is proud to have been named No. 2 in the Nation by MaxPreps for All Around High School Sports Program in 2022
. The La Salle Rams have been a competitive presence in the Rhode Island Interscholastic League since its establishment in 1932. Athletics at La Salle are built on dedication, teamwork, and sportsmanship. Young men and women grow in self-confidence, leadership, and loyalty through participation in one of our many teams.
The McLaughlin Athletic Center is an ever-growing facility providing our students the most advanced physical education and athletic preparedness. The Athletic Center is one of the biggest indoor gymnasiums in Rhode Island, featuring three basketball courts surrounded by a 5-lane indoor track. Specialized rooms, like our Conditioning and Strength Training Room, Dance Studio, and Wrestling Training Room, provide specific practice and conditioning areas for our athletes. Our outdoor facilities include 6 tennis courts, Cronin Fields, and Cimini Stadium which holds 1,800 spectators and overlooks the 400m outdoor track and multi-purpose athletic field.
As with everything in the Lasallian culture, the adults entrusted with the care of our students make the difference in our athletic programming. Many of the coaches have played beyond the high school level, bringing extensive knowledge and life experience to La Salle athletes. In addition, many faculty members serve as coaches, showing students by example how Lasallian values inform team culture. Close cooperation and mentoring between coaches and players is an important part of student life beyond the classroom at La Salle Academy.
The Athletic Program at La Salle is situated within the overall mission of the school. As such, it is an excellent means of helping students develop a deep understanding of what it means to live out the message of Christ each day.
Athletics provide opportunities for training, physical conditioning, and healthy competition. These not only help students develop their physical talents, but also strengthen their mental dexterity through strategy and intricacies of the sport. Athletics can help students learn how to function effectively and make positive contributions by encouraging responsibility, fostering persistent effort, and promoting self-awareness.
