Athletics

As professionals at the interscholastic level, we put the student first and the athlete second. 

So the athletic experience becomes a vehicle to promote learning. 

The educational mission of interscholastic athletics is that it is an extracurricular activity that supports the educational mission and objectives of the school. 

At the interscholastic level, learning is far more important than winning. Successful school coaches create the conditions necessary for students to:

  • Master new skills
  • Enjoy competition with others
  • Experience enhanced self-esteem

Athletics provides an opportunity for each student to challenge him/herself everyday and to learn life lessons that will optimize his/her overall development.

To this end and through thoughtful reflection – the athletic program at Rideau Park School will be comprised of:

A Girls’ and Boys’ Junior and Senior Level Team for volleyball and basketball to compete in interschool athletics.

All additional athletics, Cross Country, Soccer, Badminton and Track and Field, will be as established for teams in interschool league. 

  • Cross Country
  • Soccer
  • Volleyball
  • Basketball 
  • Track and Field
