Befitting from the Physical Education curriculum and its promotion of individual and team success, RPDS 5th and 6th Grade students have the opportunity to participate in the North Florida Independent Schools Athletic Conference (NFISAC). This Conference includes area independent schools in which our RPDS Athletics teams participate in boys and girls basketball, volleyball and flag football.
The primary goal of RPDS Athletics teams is to provide students with an opportunity to play a school sport where the focus is enjoying the game, learning the sport and being part of a team. RPDS believes the opportunity to play, and to play with classmates, tremendously increases student comfort and confidence with sports.
All 5th and 6th Graders are encouraged to play at least one sport throughout the year. Basketball season is held in the fall while the volleyball and flag football seasons run December through early March.
