To build community, self-esteem, lifetime fitness, and athletic skills, the interscholastic sports program at R.O.B.S. is designed to offer an excellent foundation in competitive sports and to include all students who wish to participate. Cross country and track are available to boys and girls in sixth grade. In seventh and eighth grade, girls compete in field hockey, cross country, basketball, volleyball, lacrosse, tennis, soccer, softball, and track. Seventh and eighth grade boys participate in football, cross country, basketball, volleyball, lacrosse, tennis, soccer, and track and field.
The interscholastic sports program provides students opportunities to participate on a sports team regardless of skill level or prior knowledge of the sport. Students come to understand the importance of teamwork while enhancing technical skills and learning game strategies. Experiencing the relationship between practice and improvement allows students to transfer this knowledge to other areas of life. Students learn responsibility and develop self-discipline by competing on a team. Sports serve as a venue for students to develop and display good sportsmanship and respect--both towards teammates and opponents. Through hard work and dedication, students build character and self-esteem. And they learn to balance athletics and academics and realize the lifelong health and social benefits of athletics. On court, field, or track, we also hope our students have fun!
