Welcome to the Home of the Crusaders! We are extremely proud of our student athletes, coaches, parents, and fans. Their commitment to sportsmanship at the highest level is recognized by the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA). Canterbury has been a recipient of the 2A State Sportsmanship Award five times in the past 16 years. We pride ourselves in letting our coaches coach, our players play, and our spectators to spectate.
Six members of the Class of 2019 have signed athletic scholarships to compete in softball, swimming, football, basketball and baseball. A total of 48 CSF graduates have received scholarships to play college athletics in the past eight years. That number speaks volumes to the dedication, commitment and hard work by both the student-athletes and their coaches.
Athletics are an essential part of Canterbury’s mission to educate the whole child. The physical education program begins in PK3 where students learn the importance of movement and physical activity, and work to develop lifelong wellness habits. Beginning in Grade 6, students are encouraged to become a member of an athletic team. Over 80% of our students participate in at least one sport. Becoming a member of a team promotes lifelong skills such as time management, teamwork, and prioritizing to create a healthy life/school/work balance.
Canterbury prides itself in hiring coaches who are knowledgeable, compassionate, and students of the game. Many coaches are faculty members at CSF, furthering the community feel and creating a strong bond between faculty/staff and student-athletes.
