One of Cranbrook Kingswood Upper School’s goals is to encourage students to explore and appreciate their own physical potential and to recognize their responsibility to a team by participation in interscholastic competition.
The athletic program at Cranbrook Kingswood is meant to contribute to this goal by providing a supportive, nurturing, and challenging program of interscholastic athletics and vibrant after-school activity program. Desirable outcomes include the development of skills (both general and sport specific), teamwork, self-discipline, pride, loyalty, tolerance, respect for others, confidence, perseverance, sportsmanship, and citizenship.
The Cranbrook Kingswood Middle School athletic program provides opportunities for both novice and skilled athletes. Teamwork, skill development, self-discipline, sportsmanship and commitment are important elements in all of the options offered. The school year is divided into three athletic seasons -- fall, winter and spring -- furnishing many opportunities for involvement at various skill levels.
The athletic program at Cranbrook Kingswood Middle School is under the supervision of the Middle School Athletic Director. The director’s office is housed at the Vaughan Campus. Inquiries regarding the athletic program may be made directly to this office by calling (248) 645-3078.
For convenience, parents may call a special middle school Athletic Hotline. The hotline, via a taped message, contains information relevant to daily games and practice schedules. In the event of inclement weather, parents are encouraged to call the Athletic Hotline, (248) 645-3578, after 2:00 p.m. for updates about canceled games or practices.
Middle School Intramural Programs
Designed for sixth-graders, the intramural program introduces athletes to the rules of various sports. Experienced coaches help to foster skill development in a comfortable and non-competitive environment. Each sport is incorporated into a four-week program that includes two weeks of skills and drills, followed by two to three weeks of intramural game activity. The program may include some scrimmages with sixth-graders in the intramural programs of neighboring schools.
