Athletics for Upper Schoolhow you win matters

Every Sprint, Goal, and Victory is a Result of Academic and Athletic Excellence

Celebrate discipline, sportsmanship, leadership, and character as you develop through every practice, game, and championship. Crystal Athletics prioritizes teamwork and personal development beyond the pursuit of victory. Coaches play a crucial role in your personal development. Their dedication extends beyond athletics, as they teach you valuable leadership, teamwork, and resilience skills that can translate to the classroom. As a spectator, each game offers an opportunity to witness the passion and drive of a Gryphon and share in the community's spirit and pride.

Gryphons compete in the Peninsula's West Bay Athletic and Peninsula Athletic Leagues.
