HOW IT FEELS TO

… hit three-pointers for more than the score.

Since December 2012, the varsity girls basketball teams from Saddle River Day School and Newtown High School in Newtown, Connecticut, have joined forces each year to raise money for the families of those killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy through the “Threes for Sandy Hook” program.

…  see hard work pay off.

Over the last five years, Rebel teams have won 18 titles, including girls and boys basketball, girls and boys tennis and girls lacrosse. Numerous students have made First Team All-County and All-State.

… experience Homecoming!

We invite current and past families, alumni and their children back to campus for a weekend of reunions and fun. In addition to home athletic events, students run activity booths with LEGOs, cookie decorating, face painting, pumpkin carving, pumpkin launching and the chance to “Pie a Teacher.”

We love learning that feels like this.

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 21 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.
