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.
Our Lower School Physical Education program enjoys a secure playground, an indoor gymnasium for skill building and play—and beautiful Prospect Park for outdoor 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:
Poly student-athletes train and compete on our iconic blue and gray, six-lane Mondotrack. The Track and Field facilities at Poly also include areas for jumping and throwing field events. The campus is also utilized for cross country running and endurance training.
Poly Prep has multiple gyms for indoor sports and training.
The Legacy Gym was recently upgraded with professional-level hardwood floors and new scoreboards. It features a competition court as well as a practice court. It has 10 baskets and can house three volleyball courts making it an ideal training facility for Boys’ and Girls’ Basketball and Boys’ and Girls’ Volleyball.
The state-of-the-art Novogratz Center for Athletics first opened its doors for competition in 2015. The 27,900 s.f. facility is home to the Poly Prep Wrestling, Boys’ and Girls’ Squash, Boys’ and Girls’ Volleyball programs. It also is used for Boys’ and Girls’ Basketball practice and games, as well as various Middle and Upper School Physical Education classes.
Poly Prep has two fitness centers on the Dyker Heights campus. The High Performance Lab (HPL) contain the tools and equipment used by our skilled strength and conditioning staff, coaches, and physical educators to help each student achieve their short- and long-term fitness and lifelong wellness goals.
The advanced HPL facility boasts professional grade equipment. It currently includes: 5 Sorinx Rack Systems (with a wide variety of dumbells and kettle bells), 2 jammer arms, a VertiMax, plyometric equipment, resistance bands, medicine balls, yoga mats, Run Rocket Sprint Resistant Trainer, spin bikes, treadmills, rowers, and a Jacobs Ladder Climbing Machine.
The Boys’ and Girls’ Tennis teams train and compete on campus on six recently upgraded blue hard courts with bench seating.
The Poly Prep campus has three pools. The Poly Prep Boys’ and Girls’ Swim teams utilize our four-lane indoor pool. Poly also recently added two new heated outdoor pools that our teams use for aquatic training and conditioning.
Steps from the Poly Prep Dyker Heights campus is Dyker Beach Golf Course where our Poly Prep Golf team practices and hosts our home matches.
