2018 Founders League Champions
The Loomis boys basketball program is a perennial power in New England prep school basketball. Laying an impressive foundation for the Pelicans, legendary coach Ralph Erickson set the standard in 1946, on which the current coaching has continued build.
Loomis has been one of the most dominant and consistent Class A programs during the past decade. Compiling an impressive record that includes New England Tournament Final Four appearances, a New England Tournament championship, and numerous league and conference titles, Loomis plays a competitive 22-game Class A schedule and hosts a three-day, eight-team tournament each December. Loomis plays in the finest basketball facility in New England, a state-of-the-art arena with stadium-style seating.
At Loomis we take tremendous pride in the tradition of excellence that underscores our message of one unit, one common goal. We look forward to welcoming you into our program.
