Cougars ACDS Logo

Ready, set, go! ACDS offers an after-school team sports program for students in grades 5 - 8 promoting the values of sportsmanship and camaraderie. The ACDS Cougars participate as a member school in the Silicon Valley Athletic League (SVAL).

We believe that by participating in athletics, young people gain a foundation for a healthy lifestyle while extending our school’s emphasis on the importance of respect, teamwork, discipline and having fun at school.

We’re proud of all our student athletes. We encourage children to participate in our after-school sports program and take advantage of this enriching aspect of the ACDS experience.

Teams are grouped by grade (5th and 6th are “C” teams and 7th and 8th are “A” teams). There are no cuts, and all students may sign-up and compete on a team. Teams typically practice twice a week, and individual coaches determine practice days. Games are Monday-Friday after school with occasional Saturday tournaments.
