Athletics

Playing a sport can contribute immensely to building a smarter student – and a better kid. As heart rates rise in competition, students heighten their understanding of strategy, tactics, execution, and teamwork.

They’re growing in self-esteem, discipline, and the spirit of sportsmanship. We create an atmosphere where athletes cultivate respect for teammates and opponents, as well as grace in victory and defeat. They also learn the essential link between practice and improvement. On the court, track, or field, we shape values that will forever help children lead healthier lives both physically and socially.

But perhaps the most important result of ROBS athletics? Our students have fun. Your child is encouraged to participate regardless of athletic ability or prior experience.

Beginning in sixth grade, students can compete against other independent schools in basketball, cross-country, field hockey, football, lacrosse, soccer, track and field, and volleyball. Seventh and eighth graders also can participate in tennis and golf. ROBS is a member of the Houston Junior Preparatory Conference.

Six simple words to make your child feel great during and after a game: ‘I love to watch you play.’*
