A note from our Athletic Director:
Here at Dominion Ridge Academy, we are proud to continue building on the spirit and enthusiasm shown by our student-athletes, coaches, parents, and supporters over the years.
Through our athletic programs, it is our desire to see our athletes develop and display Christ-like character in all they do. Playing on a sports team is not only about developing physical abilities, but is also very much about building emotional and spiritual characteristics that endure for a lifetime.
Stay glued to our Social Media pages for details and pictures of our Warrior athletes. Let us ALL get involved. Encourage your classmates to support your school and show your school pride.
Bill Dekraker, Athletic Director and PE Teacher
Dominion Ridge Academy has an award-winning archery team that has competed at State and National levels.
Archers learn skills that are applicable to life. They first learn a step-by-step method for drawing a bow and shooting an arrow. They quickly learn that by slowing down and focusing on one step at a time they are more successful in hitting their target. When mistakes are made, the coaches teach the team members that the solution is to analyze their steps and focus on improving one thing at a time. It’s a great plan for the archery field and in the classroom, and in life!
Dominion students learn respect, sportsmanship, and teamwork. Team members must respect the sport’s rules, as well as each other. Students enjoy competing solo as well as part of the Dominion team, honing their goals and determination.
Girls volleyball is an active program at Dominion Ridge, allowing girls from 5th – 12th grade to compete in games locally and in surrounding areas.
Girls learn technique, strategy, and teamwork while building strength and endurance. Dominion varsity teams have gone undefeated in the past few years and won tournaments. Players successfully compete in tournaments each year.

Cross Country at Dominion Ridge is both an individual and a team sport. Dominion Ridge Cross Country runs various courses in the area during the fall, competing against other schools. Training starts in the summer. Runners are judged on individual times and team times.
The team is open to 5th – 12th grade boys and girls. The runners are reminded each practice and meet to set a personal goal and to do their best meet or surpass that goal.
Cross Country builds a sense of individual accomplishment as well as comradery among students. Team members often continue after school runs throughout the year, maintaining their conditioning and endurance.
For many Dominion Ridge students, middle school soccer is where the sport goes from a recreational activity to a more serious and competitive sport. Dominion Ridge offers the opportunity to be a part of a soccer team to students in 5th grade and higher.
Competing locally and with teams in the region, the team builds on skills, techniques, and plays. Many students play on both the Dominion Ridge team and travel teams, some even conditioning for future U.S. Olympic team participation.
Try-outs are announced prior to each season and summer conditioning and skill camps are offered.
