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, Lycee Francais, 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.  5th grade students may participate in junior varsity Cross Country and developmental teams for volleyball, basketball, and futsal.  6th and 7th grade students may participate at the junior varsity or varsity levels for all four sports. The coaches will use the first 1-2 practices of the season to determine whether a student will be on the junior varsity or varsity team.  8th grade students may only participate at the varsity level for all four sports.

Developmental teams practice one day per week and participate in 2-3 exhibition games each season.  Junior varsity and varsity teams practice and/or play games 2-3 days per week.  Specific practice days for each sport are being decided and will be posted by Monday, August 29th.  Team-specific schedules will be posted online, emailed to parents, as well as handed out to players during the first week of practice for each season.
