Exciting things are happening at Carlisle School, and we need your help with a very important
project, the main gymnasium. The current rubber floor is failing and must be replaced. With your help, we will install a new, quality wood floor. In addition, the gym requires three other primary improvements that will be a part of this upgrade: lighting, painting, and sound.
Year after year in the world of athletics, Carlisle dominated in basketball. We are among the
winningest independent schools in Virginia history with 7 Boys State Championships and 8 Girls State Championships. In addition to our rich athletic history, our students use the facility as much, if not more than varsity athletes. It is a space for youth level basketball, all levels of
volleyball, assemblies, physical education classes, recess, dances and community events; it is a
gathering place, and we want it to be safe, inviting and worthy to be called, home of the Carlisle
student-athletes. The court itself will be dedicated to all the coaches in Carlisle’s rich history
who have given time, energy, and wisdom to Carlisle’s athletes over the years.
We have a fundraising target of $100,000 by July 31, 2022, with a guaranteed match up to
$50,000. If we exceed our goal, the additional money will be used for improvements to the
weight room and locker rooms.
With your help we can have a facility to rival any indoor gym in the area, one that will help us
attract more students and better serve our current population. Donations to Coaches Court may
be made in one of the following ways:
