Primary School Athletics
A well-rounded education is important at all ages, and athletics are a key component of that education.
Students have classes in the gymnasium three times a week with one of our PE specialists.
As part of our PE curriculum, every year the Grades 1 through 4 classes have swimming lessons at a local pool so that their water skills and safety are developed.
The Grade 4 students join the Middle School students participating in a standards track meet each May.
Middle School Athletics
Physical health and fitness affect all of life, including emotional well-being and intellectual success.
All students in middle school receive physical education instruction from a PE specialist, Mr. Alan Rigg, who keeps our students active.
This allows students to develop skills and to receive training that builds upon itself from year to year.
Students are actively involved during instruction, and the goal is to develop a positive attitude towards leading a physically active lifestyle.
Christian Elementary Schools Sports League
RCA belongs to the Christian Elementary School Sports League (CESS), and we participate in all of their events and tournaments.
This includes a variety of sports such as soccer, volleyball, badminton, basketball, floor hockey, and flag football. Students in grades 5-7 have the option of trying out for these teams.
Standards Track and Field Meet
All students in grades 4-7 participate in a “standards” track and field meet. RCA hosts this event, which other schools registered in CESS attend. Students compete in all events against a pre-set standard. This allows all students to become involved and to meet with success. As well, the top-performing female and male in each age group receives a medal. This meet is a unique blend of inclusivity and competitiveness.
Junior Volleyball and Basketball
Middle School students in grade eight have the opportunity to try out for our junior volleyball and basketball teams.
High School Athletics
At RCA, we have not only an excellent PHYSICAL EDUCATION PROGRAM, but also a strong extracurricular sports program under the direction of Mr Ken Walker.
All of our students are encouraged to be involved in at least one sports program, and are offered much support by the student body, teaching staff, and administration.
Practices and games are scheduled after school, and teams are usually involved in at least one weekend tournament.
Opportunities for other activities throughout the year are available depending on student interest.
