Turning Point’s athletics program starts in the Primary Division where students begin to learn the fundamentals of teamwork and sportsmanship, and ends in Grade 8 when students graduate with an appreciation and passion for leading an active and healthy lifestyle.
In addition to physical education classes during the school day, Turning Point’s interscholastic, after school sports program begins for students in Grade 5 and ends when they graduate after Grade 8. The focus remains on long-term health, with a secondary focus on skills acquisition and an understanding of healthy competition. Turning Point's no-cut policy helps to encourage participation, with the goal of achieving 100% participation for Grades 5–8 students.
Grade 5 students participate in the Coastal Canyon League, which is a developmental league based entirely on the process of learning and introducing healthy competition, without placing emphasis on the outcome of the games played. In the CCL, there are no play-offs or win-loss records, and all students play equally, regardless of experience or skill level.
Middle School students (Grades 6–8) play in the Pacific Basin League against other independent schools on the west side of Los Angeles. Students compete in flag football, soccer, basketball, volleyball, baseball, softball, cross-country, and track. In the PBL, experience and skill level play a role in determining playing time, as do sportsmanship and dedication to both the team and to academics.
