Cedar Springs Public Schools

Purpose. Potential. Pride.
Welcome to Red Hawks Athletics at Cedar Springs High Schools.   Our Athletes work hard on the court/track/field but also in the classroom to keep a high standard on their academics. 

Being a Red Hawk goes beyond just our athletes and coaches. Each student, parent, family, or community member who steps up to support our athletes plays a vital role in the success of our program.  A fan, a member of our booster club, or a sponsor – we are excited to have each of you as part of our Red Hawk community.
