The program stresses sportsmanship and strives to instill a sense of team responsibility and school spirit. Athletics at RCDS are broad enough to prepare gifted athletes to compete at the college level, while at the same time ensuring that all students are exposed to the lifelong benefits of athletics and team participation.
RCDS has a 45,000-square-foot Athletic Center with basketball and squash courts, locker rooms, a fitness center, and an athletic training room. The sports program has full-time coaches, as well as teachers who coach. Both serve as positive role models, developing a student-athlete's sense of sportsmanship and love of the game. In recent years, RCDS teams have won numerous FAA League championships, NYSAIS State Championships, and have competed in the New England playoffs. At RCDS, athletics are a fitting counterpart to academics, energizing both mind and body.
Members of the RCDS Class of 2020 have committed to continue their careers as student-athletes at some of the finest colleges and universities.
