Message from Coach MAC

We are now in the home stretch of the school year, and we get the opportunity to honor our student-athletes at our traditional banquet for the first time in 2 years. It’s weird to think back to that last banquet because it was one of the first events I was a part of and was essentially my introduction to the school and athletic community. A lot has happened in that time and our school and athletic department has seen a ton of growth. First year high school teams have grown to full programs with Varsity and JV teams. Our banquet will only include the High School student-athletes for the first time because we no longer have room to include our talented Middle School student-athletes. There are many changes that we continually have to plan for. Announcements are coming soon about coaching hires and expanded summer offerings. It is a great time to be a Griffin. Go Griffins Go!

High School Athletic Banquet Upcoming

The 2020-21 Athletic Banquet is next Monday, May 10th. This year’s banquet will honor the Rhetoric Athletes from the last 2 years. We will be honoring the High School teams and 4 seniors. Dress is business casual to business professional. Doors will open at 6:00 with the program beginning at 6:30.

Summer Sports Camp Registration Links are Live

Camp Registration is now live for our 2021 Summer Sports Camps! Our Athletic Staff provides 3-5 day camps throughout the month of June to give our Griffin athletes a fun and exciting environment in which to learn and improve new skills, and help prepare them for future athletic participation at The ACADEMY. At the sub-varsity level our coaches join with our current High School athletes to give more individualized attention to younger campers. All camps are open to non-Academy students if you want to invite a friend! Just share the registration link! Click below to register your student-athlete for camps this summer.
