Teaching the Three A's
The RCDS no-cut after-school sports program expands on the traditional benefits of athletics with a focus on the Three A’s: ability, attendance and attitude. Our goal is for student-athletes to develop life skills that help them become more successful in all their endeavors.
The After-School Athletics Program begins in fifth grade, and more than 80% of Upper School students participate. Our no-cut policy creates an inclusive environment where students with varying degrees of athletic talent can all succeed. Go Gators!
Physical Education Focuses on Fitness and Fun
Physical education at RCDS encompasses age-appropriate activities led by professionals who teach physical fitness and athletic skills, self-discipline, and teamwork in a well-managed, safe environment. Instruction begins in Pre-K, with two classes each week. Students in Beginners through eighth grade have gym classes four or five days a week.
“I just want our students to say, ‘I got a chance to play. This was great. This was pretty special.’”
– Paul Campanella, RCDS Athletic Director
