RPRY's believes that grade school athletic competition should be fun, but must also be a significant part of a sound educational program. Upon acceptance to a team, students and parents are expected to sign and adhere to the Player-Parent contract.
Team members are expected to demonstrate exemplary behavior, sportsmanship and Derech Eretz, as well as maintain a 'C' average (or above) in all subject areas.
Coaches are held to a similar high standard. We believe that those who coach students are, first and foremost, teachers who have a duty to assure that their sports programs promote the development of good character. We believe that the essential elements of character-building are embodied in the concept of sportsmanship and five core ethical values: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, and caring. We believe, further, that the highest potential of sports is achieved when coaches are committed to the ideal of pursuing victory with honor and dignity. RPRY coaches are held to our Coaches Code of Conduct.
In the past, RPRY has won division and championship titles. We hope to continue this tradition in a way that exemplifies the high standards, values and moral conduct for which RPRY and its students have been known.
