For students of middle school age, some of the most teachable moments happen on a playing field. Children of any level of athletic ability have the opportunity to participate in sports. While we enjoy winning, the focus remains on learning. Through the experience of athletic participation, students learn values, habits, and lessons that will carry over from field to life. These include teamwork, discipline, commitment, and sportsmanship.
At the Upper School, there is a wide range of opportunity in the many sports Cranbrook offers at the varsity and sub-varsity level.
