From day one, physical education plays a crucial role in your child’s journey. Here, exercise and competition don’t stand apart from the rest of education—they intentionally fuel every student’s academic and emotional growth. That’s why we provide physical education classes for all children from their first day of preschool, where our youngest students build motor skills mental and physical. And a favorite RHLS tradition is our annual Jog-a-thon —one day for grades TK-8 to run, earning money for our school.
Starting in sixth grade, we also offer competitive interscholastic team sports including soccer, volleyball, and basketball. We play local teams, and the time commitment from students is minimal, allowing students to continue participation in other sports/activities.
Through our fun, invigorating program, your child experiences the joys and challenges of teamwork, earns confidence by building physical strength and skill, develops sportsmanship, and knows the exhilaration of robust health. In our supportive, inclusive environment, children flourish through a leveled approach tailored for beginning, intermediate, and experienced athletes. And your child feels excited and encouraged to try out new experiences and reach for higher goals.
Middle School Sports
We also offer an after school team sports program where students can play boys and girls soccer, basketball, and volleyball. We are in a South Bay middle school league with other schools such as Country Day School, Rolling Hills Prep, First Lutheran of Torrance, and others. In the last 4 years, we have won girls’ soccer and 3 girls’ volleyball championships along with 2nd place in boys’ soccer, boys’ volleyball championship, and boys’ basketball championship. We are very proud of the effort our middle school athletes give to RHLS.
Coach Guy King started teaching at RHLS in 2003. Along with teaching Physical Education, he is also the Middle School Athlete Director. He received his B.A. degree from Azusa Pacific University and has over 30 years of experience in coaching. He is married with two grown children and loves spending his spare time with his family. He wants each student at RHLS to understand the value of physical fitness and how it will help develop the body, mind, and spirit. Above all he wants every child to understand the joy of knowing the love of Jesus Christ and how it can change their lives.
