Physical health and fitness affect all of life, including emotional well-being and intellectual success.
All students in middle school receive physical education instruction from a PE specialist.
This allows students to develop skills and to receive training that builds upon itself from year to year.
Students are actively involved during instruction, and the goal is to develop a positive attitude towards leading a physically active lifestyle.
Christian Elementary Schools Sports League
RCA belongs to the Christian Elementary School Sports League (CESS), and we participate in all of their events and tournaments.
This includes a variety of sports such as soccer, volleyball, badminton, basketball, floor hockey, and flag football. Students in grades 5-7 have the option of trying out for these teams.
Standards Track and Field Meet
All students in grades 4-7 participate in a "standards" track and field meet. RCA hosts this event, which other schools registered in CESS attend. Students compete in all events against a pre-set standard. This allows all students to become involved and to meet with success. As well, the top-performing female and male in each age group receives a medal. This meet is a unique blend of inclusivity and competitiveness.
Junior Volleyball and Basketball
Middle School students in grade eight have the opportunity to try out for our junior volleyball and basketball teams.
