RIS

Sports / Academy

At RIS we believe that sport is fundamental to a child’s development, physically, mentally and spiritually. We believe sport builds character and assists children to realize their potential, passions and purpose in life. Playing and excelling in sports also teaches kids the importance of hard work, perseverance, learning from failure, and the importance of grasping opportunities. It is through this understanding that RIS provides its students with a wide range of sports, supported by a very talented team of coach’s and supervisors.

Chess

RIS has one of the most awarded and recognized chess clubs in the NWP. Chess strengthens children’s minds as it’s one of the best games that develop logical, precise thinking. Children will get better at analyzing problems and making choices. They will be more patient and have sharper memories; all of which improve communication, confidence and builds self-esteem.

Karate

Karate teaches self-confidence and respect, not only for yourself but for others, including an opponent. As your child masters complex moves, stances, and fighting forms, he or she will know how to hold his or her own in any situation. Your child will set goals with each belt earned and learn how to achieve those goals, and in so doing, build valuable confidence. Confidence comes naturally when you can handle your own, even when faced with a bully or another challenge.
