Avenues has developed, in partnership with Chelsea Piers Sports & Entertainment Complex, a program of instructional, recreational and athletic experiences that is safe, age-appropriate, challenging and fun. The Avenues physical education program includes:
Chelsea Piers is the country’s premier amateur sports destination, offering an unrivaled combination of athletic facilities and experienced, professional instructors in 20 different sports. Situated on four historic Hudson River piers, just blocks from Avenues’ Chelsea campus, the 28-acre waterfront sports complex includes six separate state-of-the-art athletic training venues—The Golf Club; 300 New York Bowling Center; The Sports Center; Bluestreak Training Center; Sky Rink; and The Field House. Chelsea Piers provides the ideal campus for Avenues to build its dynamic athletic program.
Avenues is proud to be affiliated with Chelsea Piers. We share a strong commitment to sports and fitness as a way to promote a strong school community of children who are fit and eager to learn and grow.
