The Way of the Gryphons

Professional coaching, skill development and competition thrive in tandem with academic excellence. First class field, court, and training facilities are just steps away from the classrooms.

Gryphons choose among 26 teams in 9 sports for Middle School, and 24 teams in 11 sports for Upper School.

As a Gryphon, you have the opportunity to play multiple sports across the school year, and across your school career. 

Whether you’re an All-Star or just getting started, there’s a competitive team for every Gryphon.

If you’re committed to a sport beyond school, Crystal has training facilities and sports medicine expertise that support your passion for athletics.
