Rondout Athletics for Grades 5-8: This year, Rondout Athletics will focus on providing new opportunities to build student leaders and promote the tenets of sportsmanship, leadership and teamwork. Rondout will be offering a variety of sports related events, exhibitions, meets, and two full athletic seasons, united with a theme of building student athletes and leaders. Students will have the opportunity to participate in events for soccer, cross country, basketball, volleyball, golf and track and field. These sports offer opportunities for team play, setting individual goals and broadening the athletic experiences of our Rondout athletes. Basketball (boys and girls) and track and field(co-ed) will each be run for full seasons. In this packet you will find additional information about the experiences available this year along with dates, and important health forms to allow for students participation. In addition, Rondout will seek to provide experiences that will help our students grow on and off the field. These may include motivational presentations and speakers. This new and exciting program supports the whole child. It allows students to explore a variety of sports while addressing the development of athletic skills and building students' capacity to be part of a team as well as preparing for the challenges of navigating through competitive environments. We are excited to offer this new athletics format to students which will allow us to maximize student experiences and work through the challenges that small schools athletic programs face. We look forward to a wonderful year of growth, development and enjoyment.
