Boys Basketball

2018-19 Boys RVAL Champions


The boys' basketball program goes back many years at Dublin, but in recent seasons it has gained considerable popularity. So much so that in 2011 the athletic department, in an effort to meet the increased interest, started the school's first-ever junior varsity boys basketball squad. 

The varsity team's 20-game season runs from early December through the end of February. The team plays in the River Valley Athletic League. Our schedule is made up of similar sized varsity clubs from all over New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Vermont, including Putney, Eagle Hill, and White Oak, among others. The coaching staff is committed to maximizing the talent and effort from each player, all within an environment that encourages leadership and fosters confidence. 

The team's season consists of practices four days a week and games every Wednesday and Saturday. In recent years Wildcat basketball has enjoyed some much deserved success including multiple RVAL Championships. 

School support for the program is strong. A healthy contingent of students and faculty attend road games, while home games are a true event at Dublin. Whitney Gymnasium fills up with fans and contests often include several entertaining fan-related half-time events, such as half-court shot contest, blind shooting, and a relay race.
