Sports Teams

Girls Basketball Fisher Gym

From the football field to the volleyball court, Cougar pride is on display with every one of our athletic teams.

ACDS offers an after-school sports program for grades 5-8. The ACDS Cougars participate as a member school in the Silicon Valley Athletic League (SVAL).

ACDS offers flag football and volleyball in the fall, boys and girls basketball in the winter, and co-ed track & field in the spring. 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 to compete on a team. Teams typically practice twice a week, and individual coaches determine practice days. Games are Monday-Thursday after school.

While ACDS teams have experienced a great deal of success, winning league championships at all levels of play (the “A” and “C” football teams have won the SVAL championship five of the last 10 years), our priority is promoting the values of sportsmanship and camaraderie.

There are 5 different sports played during the year:

Fall: Flag Football, Girls Volleyball
Winter: Boys and Girls Basketball
Spring: Co-ed Track and Field

We believe that by participating in sports, 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.
