Athletic Facilities

The Sprague Gym often called the “new gym” accommodates two regulation basketball courts or two regulation volleyball courts. The basketball and volleyball programs make this venue space home for practices and for games. Bleachers can accommodate a huge group of Cate fans wearing white and blue, who cheer, chant, and support our teams. The Sprague Gym complex has athletic rehabilitation and athletic training facilities. Athletes often cross-train specifically for their sport during the season here.

At Cate, students have the chance to learn about proper training techniques at the Harcourt Fitness Center. Whether you are an athlete in search of sport specific preparation, a performing artist looking to improve cardiovascular capacity or posture, or just in need of some exercise, our strength and conditioning staff will have the right program for you.

The state-of-the-art Emmett Horowitz Aquatic Center houses two pools as well as the Brittingham Family Athletic Training Center.

Set between a rolling lawn and rows of California sycamores, the eight courts of the Robert Bonning Tennis Center are home to Cate’s tennis program – one that’s rooted in tradition and perennial champions. The community often gathers to watch the intense matches in the afternoon during both the girls and boys seasons. Many Cate students and faculty use the courts for less competitive practice – getting in some exercise while rallying back and forth.

The Fleischmann Gym or the “old gym” is a throwback to another era. The small yet charming gym hosts basketball and volleyball pickup games, dodgeball, and other activities. Two squash courts on either side of the gym are home to Cate’s squash program, one of the oldest in California.
