Fall Sports Start Up

As the Athletic Director of Crestwood School, I want to welcome you to our Fall CISAA varsity sports program, which begins next week. I hope your child is as excited as we are to kick off the fall season.

Please take the time to read the included sports calendar below highlighting upcoming events each week.

We hope you and your child will enjoy the Positive Coaching Alliance tips we add weekly to give insight into our philosophy and our school’s end goal.
