Cedar Ridge Academy Sports Clubs
Cedar Ridge Academy serves the vast diversity of our student body by offering a wide range of extracurricular activities to satiate their interests. Cedar Ridge believes the creation of an environment rich in opportunity will help students become more personally invested into the improvement not only in their academics but of their body, mind and spirit. By increasing each student’s participation in both physical and intellectual challenges, we have seen an increase in focus, confidence, social skills, and academics.
Current Sports Clubs include
Athletic Eligibility: Student athletes can meet eligibility requirements in as few as two weeks once enrolled at Cedar Ridge. If a student athlete loses eligibility they may regain eligibility in as few as two weeks.
Cedar Ridge Academy Boxing Club
The Boxing Club offers students the opportunity to safely learn and practice the “sweet science” of boxing. Club members first learn boxing rules and fundamentals then progress through sparring and eventually boxing. To prevent injuries, mouthpieces, groin protectors, and full headgear are always worn during all contact activities.
Although boxing is a competitive sport, the emphasis of the club is learning boxing fundamentals in a non-competitive, mutually supportive manner. All members are champions!
Cedar Ridge Academy Girls Fastpitch Softball
For most of the eighteen years Cedar Ridge Academy has existed, softball has been a major source of enjoyment for both students and staff. Throughout our history, we have sponsored softball teams that regularly participated in tournaments spanning across the western half of the United States with our team making it to the nationals twice.
The campus is ideal for these young athletes’ to fine tune their skills by providing a well maintained, regulation sized softball field along with an indoor batting cage large enough for multiple practice drills. Surrounding the batting cage, we have quality exercise equipment to help strengthen key muscle groups needed to improve field performance year round.
Aside from our capable facilities, we offer additional support in the success of these athletes by monitoring and teaching the students how to include a healthy, well balanced diet at each meal. With the sport of softball continuing to grow in popularity nationwide, our school offers a unique opportunity to apply our years of experience and resources into these athletes.
Cedar Ridge Academy Girls Volleyball Club
Cedar Ridge Academy has a girls’ volleyball club which practices throughout the year and competes with other leagues in the area. All female students interested in being part of the Volleyball Club are welcome to join. We have a no-cut policy allowing all students the opportunity to be part of our team.
