Welcome to CDS Bulldog Athletics!

CDS Bulldog Athletics is an after school sports program that offers four sports over three seasons during the academic year. Students can participate in co-ed cross-country, co-ed volleyball, girls’ and boys’ basketball, and girls’ and boys’ futsal. CDS is part of the San Francisco Athletic League (SFAL). Other participating schools include Live Oak, Burke’s, Lycée Français, SF Friends School, SF School, Kittredge, Synergy, CAIS, Presidio Hill School, and KIPP Academy.

All middle school students are welcome to participate in the CDS After School Sports Program. There are no cuts for CDS sports. If league team rosters reach maximum capacity, the opportunity for students not in a league team to practice and play is made available in the form of a ‘club team’ or developmental setting. Students can only sign-up for one sport/team per season.

Fifth-grade students may participate in junior varsity Cross Country and developmental teams for volleyball, basketball, and futsal. Sixth and seventh-grade students may participate at the junior varsity or varsity levels for all four sports. Where necessary, the coaches will use the first 1-2 practices of the season to determine whether a student will be on the club/developmental team, junior varsity, or varsity team. Eighth-grade students may only participate at the varsity level for all four sports.

The club/developmental team/s practice one day per week and like-minded schools are contacted to arrange an exhibition game or scrimmage. Junior varsity and varsity teams practice and/or play games 2-3 days per week.
