PSAL Sports

Established in 1903, the Public Schools Athletic League (PSAL) is the longest running scholastic athletic program in the country. The mission of the PSAL is to provide opportunities for educating students in physical fitness, character development and socialization skills through an athletic program that fosters discipline and sportsmanship across our 25 varsity sports. Since its inception, PSAL has provided opportunities for over one million New York City students.

As we are a shared campus, all student-athletes in the building compete under Murry Bergtraum High School.
