Gryphon Athletics

The UDS Athletics Department values and encourages the lessons learned and the whole child development that comes from competing in athletics. We consistently pursue excellence through personal development, teamwork, and responsible behavior on the field and in the classroom. Athletic participation helps our students grow, learn and enjoy themselves while they use and develop their personal, physical and intellectual skills.


We are dedicated to consistent development and celebration of our student-athletes as well as the recruitment of high-level coaching and support staff. Since our first year of athletics in 2019-2020, UDS has competed throughout the Fall, Winter, and Spring with multiple middle schools around the Charlotte Mecklenburg and Union County area.
