In compliance with NYSAISAA and NYSPHSAA guidance and further considerations of all AAIS member schools we have decided to cancel the traditional winter season to ensure the health and safety of all. 

Despite the loss of our competition season, we are able to offer several Upper School programs that promote sports skills growth and fitness/wellness both at Chapin and remotely. This modified winter season will begin November 30 and end on January 28. It will consist of a combination of mini-programs such as sport specific skills training, fitness and wellness classes. Students in Classes 8-12 will be eligible for PE credits with these programs.
