Athletics Overview

Crystal Athletics

The purpose of the Crystal Athletics program is to help students become their best selves through participation in competitive athletics. Aligned with the school’s commitment to excellence in academics, Crystal Athletics focuses on personal growth and skill development by cultivating discipline, sportsmanship, leadership, teamwork and character. Crystal Athletics enriches the student experience for both participants and the entire Crystal Community.

From the playing fields to the court, Crystal students are active participants in athletic programs that bring balance, enjoyment, and competition to their lives. Athletics at Crystal are designed to encourage Crystal core values: celebrate athletics, seek growth challenges, kindness and inclusion, balance, enthusiasm, and humility. It's a great way to compete, to be physically active, to compete, to perform, to hone your skills or try something new, and to meet different groups of people.
