Athletics

Kirby student-athletes work hard and play to win in a competitive and inclusive program.

We encourage all students to stay active and involved by playing on one of our athletic teams. With a wide variety of sports to choose from, more than half of our students find their place on a Kirby team. Kirby student-athletes are dedicated and competitive, participating in the Santa Cruz County Private School Association (SCCPSA) in middle school and the Pacific Coast Athletic League division of the Central Coast Section (CCS) in high school.

If you are interested in learning about the opportunities to participate in a middle or high school sport at Kirby School, please contact Kirby's Athletics Director, Abby Christopher.

Beyond helping students to stay fit and healthy, team sports teach students important interpersonal skills like leadership, cooperation, and teamwork. Also, being involved in an after school sport supports the development of time management skills. On average, middle school teams meet 2-3 times per week to practice or compete, and high school teams meet 3-5 times per week. This commitment helps students learn how to balance academic, athletic, and personal responsibilities.
