Open Gyms, Fall Sport Information, and New Sports Coming to RCS!
We hope you have had a chance to enjoy the great weather this summer! As we get closer to the start of school, I wanted to give an update about Ridgeview Athletics.
Summer Open Gyms for volleyball and basketball have begun. This is a free, optional opportunity for 5-8th graders to learn key fundamentals. Basketball open gyms are on Mondays and Wednesdays from 9:00am-10:30am. Volleyball open gyms with Coach McNutt and Coach Correll are on Tuesdays from 8:00am-9:30am and Thursday from 4:00pm-5:30pm.
SEASON INFORMATION & NEW SPORTS
Girls' Volleyball begins on August 12 with our first practice and our first game on August 19. The team is open to 6th-8th graders. Your student will need to have an active physical performed by a physician completed before the first practice. Registration will be $95 and must be paid before the first game. From August 12-16, we will hold two practices per day from 8-9:30AM and 4-5:30PM. Players must attend at least seven practices to compete in the first game. Want to learn more?

This year we will be introducing two new sports at Ridgeview. This fall we are partnering with the Fort Collins Rowing Association and fielding an Upper School Rowing Team (9th-12th Grade). This spring we will be offering a Sevens Rugby club for 6th-8th graders and a separate team for our upper school, 9th-12th graders.
To start the year, we will having a booth at the Back to School Night on August 28. We will have information about the upcoming school year, including schedules and volunteer opportunities.
We are looking to push our athletic department further and open opportunities to grow our students through sports! Keep an eye out for updates on our athletic website. As always, if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to reach out to us.
Thank you and Go Hoplites!
