Basketball

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

Springdale Preparatory School is building a national basketball program and its schedule is filled with national caliber programs and tournaments. Playing against the nation’s best private school players builds character, teaches perseverance and provides discipline.

 

The Springdale Lions basketball program features athletes who contribute both academically and athletically to the school community. The team has implemented an aggressive style of play on both ends of the court with an onus on the cerebral aspect of the game, that carries over for application in school and future life experiences.

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

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.
