Athletic Department Philosophy
Interscholastic sports are one of several programs and experiences available at RCBA at the middle and upper school level to assist students in their personal growth and development. RCBA is dedicated to teaching life skills within an athletic setting. As such, athletics can help promote the acceptance of hard work, loyalty, and dedication to tasks, convey the importance of teamwork and team unity, develop the necessity of establishing and working toward goals, and encourage the principles relating to sportsmanship and fair play. The RCBA coaching staff embraces the opportunity to work in a diverse climate where intelligence and character growth flourish. RCBA student-athletes will become better people and build lasting relationships through their participation in sports as a Soldier!
Athletic Department Mission
The mission of the RCBA Athletic Department is to develop student-athletes who: value the diversity and contributions of others; respectfully assume responsibility for their own actions; live physically and mentally healthy lives; and display grit when working to achieve excellence in academic, team and individual goals. This creates empathetic Soldiers that lead with integrity.
