DKJA Athletics

The Athletic Department is committed to providing a successful sports program that creates a challenging and competitive environment and instills the ideals of commitment, leadership, personal integrity, responsibility, sportsmanship, and teamwork. The Claire and Emanuel G. Rosenblatt High School teams compete in the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA), including flag football, golf, volleyball, cross country, soccer, basketball, baseball and tennis.  Our Middle School teams compete in a sixteen school Independent Athletic League (IAL). We offer flag football, volleyball, basketball, soccer, and tennis. The Eagles have won 10 league championships in soccer, basketball, tennis and flag football

As our program continues to grow, we have sent numerous varsity teams to the FHSAA Regional Playoffs in soccer, tennis, volleyball and basketball. In 2017, the varsity girls volleyball team qualified for the State Final Four, finishing 3rd in the state for class 2A schools. Our Middle School has won 10 IAL Championships and has been runner-up 18 times.

The DKJA Athletic Department is supported by an active Eagles Athletics Booster Club, organized by parents along with the help of the school's Athletic Director. 

Our Athletic Department includes a comprehensive physical education curriculum that aims to instill the love of movement and all types of physical activity to promote good health and good habits by developing skills throughout Grades K – 8. Physical education is an elective in the High School. The primary goal of the program is to give each student a chance to meet various physical challenges successfully, which sharpen skills and further the students’ appreciation for physical activity.

In addition to physical and cognitive development, the teacher looks for students to grow socially and emotionally, gain self-confidence and learn to win and lose graciously.  Sportsmanship, fair play, honesty, kindness and respect for rules, fellow classmates, and the teacher are goals even more worthy than physical success and in keeping with our effort to teach character education and Jewish values. Students learn to understand that physical education class is a structured class, and not recess. They must show self- control, act responsibly and follow class rules and directions so that safety of self and others is not jeopardized.

Students in Grades K-8 also have the opportunity of enrolling in dance or having tennis lessons during their PE period. Tennis lessons are offered for an additional fee.
