Our students love how it feels to push themselves to the limit and to unite as a team and a community.

Rebel Athletics is a competitive athletic program, with hard-working coaches and players and enthusiastic support from parents and fans. SRDS student-athletes compete with passion, find joy in their achievements and appreciate all the lessons learned along the way. We’re proud of the leadership and values our athletes demonstrate wherever they go; our athletic director regularly receives calls and messages from competitor schools complimenting our students on their conduct and sportsmanship.

SRDS student-athletes compete on 22 teams at the Varsity, Junior Varsity and Middle School levels. All students participate in physical education classes.

Perhaps the most gratifying quality of our athletics program is the way our student-athletes see themselves, and the way other students see them. The captain of the basketball team may also be on the student council, a member of the stage-lighting crew or a violinist in the string quartet. Students don’t let stereotypes limit them. Our athletes carry these values as they go on to play at the collegiate level.

Our Philosophy
At Saddle River Day School, we believe athletics are an integral part of the SRDS experience. We strive to provide an environment that promotes achievement, fair play, integrity, sportsmanship, and overall health and fitness.
We believe the values taught through participation in athletics are an extension of those taught in the classroom at SRDS. Developing a strong work ethic, working as a member of a team, respect for leadership and peers, self-discipline, commitment, loyalty, perseverance, communication, accountability, conflict-resolution, and pride in accomplishments are all life skills that a strong athletic program enhances.
