A great benefit of having a spectacular 25-acre campus is the outstanding athletic facilities it houses so students have easy access to health, fitness, and sports activities.

This on-site access is integral to the Middle and Upper School student experience at Poly.  The Dyker Heights location offers a wide variety of athletic facilities for budding athletes and fitness enthusiasts:

FIELDS

  • The recently upgraded Poly Prep Softball diamond sits diagonally opposite the baseball diamond. It features a skinned infield and enclosed team benches. 
BASEBALL & SOFTBALL TRAINING CENTER
