Riverdale Country School is a member of the Ivy Preparatory School League (IVY). The league was established to encourage member schools to improve their extra-curricular program in the area of athletics. The value of league membership is derived from arranging of schedules, equalizing competition, conducting league meets, sport championships, and generally up-grading the athletic program by adhering to league standards and goals. Membership implies abiding by league schedule, by-laws, rules and regulations. The following schools are members of the Ivy League: Collegiate School, Dalton School, Ethical Cultural Fieldston School, Hackley School, Horace Mann School, Poly Prep Country Day School, Trinity School, Riverdale Country School.
The Ivy Preparatory School League promotes good sportsmanship by student-athletes, coaches and fans. We ask all spectators to respect the efforts of the players, coaches and officials by cheering in a positive manner for their respective teams. At no time should spectators speak to participants, coaches or officials during an athletic event. Profanity, racial or ethnic slurs, personal insults, fighting or other inappropriate behavior will not be tolerated and are grounds for removal from the site of competition. In addition, the use of noisemakers is not permitted. Games should be competitive but, above all, fun and friendly for everyone.
