Athletics

At Springdale Preparatory School, athletic competition centers not on the final score but on core values developed through participation.

Springdale is a college prep school offering athletics for the entire student body. We aim to build character, confidence, discipline, mental toughness and leadership skills. All of which are key principles shown in all levels of competition. Our athletes learn to be gracious winners and losers as they see the skills of their opponents and teammates.

 

Our young athletes are good sportsmen for their fair and generous behavior. Also, their treatment of others on and off the playing field plays into good sportsmanship. All student athletes sign a creed outlining the code of conduct. For this code serves as the basic philosophy for competition when representing the Springdale Lions.

Interscholastic Programs

Students have the chance to represent Springdale Preparatory Boarding and Day School in athletic competition. Springdale fields athletic teams for boys and girls based on student demand. The Springdale Lions compete as independent teams in an effort to provide increased exposure and choices for our students.
 

We encourage students to participate on teams for sports they already enjoy or wish to learn during each season. All athletes learn new skills, develop teamwork and companionship with fellow student athletes, and experience increased levels of physical fitness. Additionally, participation in many sports promotes well-rounded and strong individual growth.

During every home and away game, a licensed athletic trainer is present to care for athletes during competition. In the event of an injury, the administrator on the field will communicate with medical professionals and contact parents at the right time.
 

Injuries do occur, and our medical professionals will follow the correct protocols outlined by our athletic director and director of medical services. We consider all injuries as serious and take every precaution ensure the safety and health of our student athletes. Coaches train in CPR and first aid, and always have medical equipment and first aid kits on hand during practices and competition.
 

We do not permit an injured player to return to practice or competition unless written permission is granted by the treating physician.

We take any bump or blow to the head seriously. For this reason, we remove the student athlete from competition to check for concussion symptoms. If a concussion diagnosis is made, the student must meet specific criteria over an extended period of time in order to allow the brain to properly heal prior to returning to activity.
 

The school’s medical staff, coach and diagnosing physician supervise this process. We will inform teachers to ensure the proper transition to the regular academic schedule.
