By choosing to become a Falcon, you are part of a long-standing tradition of success and pride both in the classroom and on the playing field and courts.
You have the opportunity for an amazing athletic experience that will supplement your Riverdale Country School education as well as prepare you for a healthy life after Riverdale. In addition to our customary success on the fields and courts, we have instilled in each student-athlete the virtues of sportsmanship, character, and commitment.
Our mission is simple: provide a positive athletic experience for each student-athlete within the program. This holds true for the accomplished athlete, with his or her sights set on collegiate athletics, or the novice, looking to enjoy the experience of being on a team and working for a common goal.
We have three Athletic Trainers to help our athletes with prevention, care, and maintenance of injuries. Our Strength and Conditioning Coach works with our teams and with individual athletes on improving core strength. Our Director of Coaching finds the best coaches for each team and through continual assessment, feedback, and professional development, improves our teams by coaching our 151 coaches.
Take pride in this chance to represent RIVERDALE in a first-class manner; you are now part of an extended network that goes beyond graduation and will always be part of your life.
