Riverside Presbyterian Day School

RPDS Athletics

RPDS Athletics is a great opportunity for 5th and 6th Grade students to participate in team sports. Boys and girls basketball, volleyball, and flag football are the options the students have to choose from. The Athletics program at RPDS focuses on teaching the students about the game, the skills associated with the sport, and sportsmanship. All students are given the opportunity to play each sport, and all students on the team are given ample playing time throughout the season.

Basketball

The RPDS Basketball program is designed to teach our 5th and 6th Grade students basic basketball skills, and allow the students to experience the benefits of team sports. We currently participate in the North Florida Independent Schools Athletic Conference. The basketball season runs from September through November and concludes with a single elimination tournamnet against other area independent schools.


Flag Football

The RPDS Flag Football program is designed to teach our 5th and 6th Grade students the fundamentals of playing flag football, while also introducing them to the fun of participating in team sports. RPDS currently participates in the North Florida Independent Schools Athletic Conference. During the season, RPDS competes against other area conference teams throughout the months of January and February. The season concludes with a double elimination tournament in March.


Volleyball

Volleyball is a winter sport that is offered to students at RPDS in 5th and 6th Grade. Players are taught basic skills and techniques for underhand passing, setting, and are even given a brief overview to overhead hitting. Serving is a huge focus, and we begin by teaching the athletes the underhand serve before moving to an overhead serve. The season runs from December to February.
