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.
SRDS competes in the NJIC (North Jersey Interscholastic Conference). SRDS student-athletes compete on 21 teams at the Varsity, Junior Varsity, and Middle School levels. Students in K-12 are also required to participate in age-appropriate Physical Education classes offered multiple times per week to promote healthy bodies.
