View of the Athletic Centre from Ratcliffe Field

Athletic Centre & Fields

Opened in the fall of 2006, this 50,000 sq. ft. centre provides exceptional athletic facilities, spacious gathering areas as well as classroom and office space. The regulation-size pool (25 metres, with state-of-the-art timing system), double gym, single gym with a climbing wall, fitness room, change rooms, and associated facilities make this an unparalleled facility.

On the Mezzanine level, there is an athletic lounge and access to the pool viewing area. The commons connects the pool level of the building to the existing south wing of the Upper School.

The double gymnasium permits Havergal students to host and participate in regulation indoor athletic competitions. An electronically-operated divider curtain allows the gym to be split into two separate teaching or activity areas, each with its own set of bleachers. The floor is fully marked for basketball, volleyball and badminton, both in practice and in full competition formats.

Our pitches include the school’s three playing fields: the Judy Ratcliffe Field, which lies to the south of the main building nearest Avenue Road; the Lower Pitch, the playing field behind the Athletic Centre; and the Cohen Family Sports Field, which is located at the north end of the property bordering Lawrence Avenue.

The Fitness Room is open to students in Grades 9 to 12. Its equipment includes free weights, ergometers, treadmills, bicycles and elliptical trainers.
