At Dublin we recognize the value of team sports in a student's life. While wins and championships are nice, the real pay-off comes through the exposure athletes gain from working together toward a common goal. Leadership skills are honed. Confidence is built.
Our season, which runs from early December to the end of February, features a 20 game schedule, with games every Wednesday and Saturday. 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. In recent years Wildcat basketball has enjoyed some much deserved success including multiple RVAL Championship appearances.
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.
A coach's son himself, and a gym rat from a young age, Walters grew up in Clinton, Michigan, where he captained his high-school team for his final two seasons, advancing to the district finals. After attending Harvard College, where he played intramural and pick-up ball (briefly rubbing shoulders with Jeremy Lin), he taught and coached for two seasons at Groton School, lived in Ghana, Ireland, and Italy, and made an appearance for the Minotauro Taormina (Sicily) basketball team under the assumed name Andre LoGiudice. At Dublin, Walters runs an annual summer basketball camp, and has set expectations high for the Wildcats to compete and succeed at a high level in the competitive New England prep-school scene.
