Athletics

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

We aim to build character, confidence, discipline, mental toughness and leadership skills, all key principles demonstrated in all levels of competition. Our athletes learn to be gracious winners and losers as they recognize the skills and talents of their opponents as well as their teammates.

 

Our young athletes are regarded as good sportsmen for their fair and generous behavior and treatment of others on and off the playing field. All student athletes sign a participation creed outlining the code of conduct that serves as the underlying philosophy for competition when representing the Springdale Lions.

We aim to build character, confidence, discipline, mental toughness and leadership skills, all key principles demonstrated in all levels of competition.

Interscholastic Programs

Students have the opportunity 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.

 

Students are encouraged to participate on teams for sports they already enjoy or wish to learn during each season. All athletes learn new skills, develop teamwork and camaraderie with fellow student athletes, and experience increased levels of physical fitness. Participation in multiple 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 appropriate time.

 

Injuries do occur, and our medical professionals will follow the appropriate protocols outlined by our athletic director and director of medical services. All injuries are considered serious and every precaution is taken to ensure the safety and health of our student athletes. Coaches will be trained in CPR and first aid, and will always have medical equipment and first aid kits on hand during practices and competition.

 

Under no circumstances will an injured player be permitted to return to practice or competition unless written permission is granted by the treating physician.

Any bump or blow to the head is taken seriously, and the student athlete will be removed 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.

 

This process is supervised by the school’s medical staff in collaboration with the coach and the diagnosing physician. Teachers will be informed to ensure the proper transition to the regular academic schedule.
