Character-In-Action

Crescent’s Character-In-Action programs provide our boys with authentic opportunities to develop character outside of the classroom.
Character-In-Action

Athletics

Building character happens on the field and in the gym as well as in the classroom. Crescent Athletics are “Character-in-Action” opportunities for coaches to teach boys values above winning, including sportsmanship, teamwork and respect.
Our athletics program complements our curricular phys.ed. classes, providing boys in Grades 3-12 with opportunities to explore character through action in a competitive environment, and to develop a life-long passion for an active, healthy lifestyle.

Crescent has
over 70 sports teams including volleyball, cross-country, track and field, hockey, swimming, baseball and tennis. In addition, there are intramural and House-based sports for students who do not play on competitive teams.

  • Committed Coaching

    Nearly 60 members of our faculty serve as team coaches. Their work is supported by guest coaches from the community. As well, Upper School students are encouraged to develop their leadership skills as student coaches for younger teams.

    Along with preparing the athletes to compete, all coaches work to instil good sportsmanship, resiliency, teamwork and other positive character traits, and to ensure the athletes have the resources and support to meet Crescent's high academic standards.
  • Competitive Teams at Crescent

    Crescent competes at CISAA (Conference of Independent Schools Athletic Association) league competitions with other schools' elite representative teams. We offer Division 2 and 3 teams when possible. Some Crescent teams compete at CAIS (Canadian Accredited Independent Schools) tournaments and OFSAA (Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations). Each year, one of our rugby, soccer or hockey teams participates in an international tour.
