Come out & play a sport this fall!

I want to urge all 5th -12th graders to come out and play a sport. We are in need of Boys soccer players. The deadline to sign up is August 30th. Our first away game is on September 7th. We are also encouraging students to try out for Cross Country, Archery, and Girls Volleyball this fall.
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. Complete the Physical Examination Form to play a fall sport!

Respectfully,

Bill Dekraker, Athletic Director and PE Teacher

Archery to Start Sept. 23!

Archery practice will be Thursdays Beginning Sept. 23 at 4:00pm.
Practices will only occur when there is not a previously scheduled game in the Gym. Archery competition schedule is TBD. Please show up at practice with VHSL Physical Form in hand. No need to sign up ahead of time.
VHSL physical is required. Henry Thoreau said, “In the long run, you only hit what you aim at.” C’mon out!

Volleyball

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.

The volleyball season starts in September and runs through November. Girls also have the opportunity to participate in summer camps to hone their skills prior to the season starting.

Cross Country

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.

Soccer

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.
