Student Life


Lessons for life

Athletics has been an integral part of a student’s education at Ransom Everglades throughout the school’s history. Head coaches are teachers and educators, and many are part of the academic faculty. Our goal is to foster a student's passion for sports while instilling leadership skills, teamwork and a lifelong work ethic.

We don’t recruit athletes. We build programs. The middle and upper schools field 76 teams for boys and girls in 17 sports. More than half of our students play on at least one team every year. Some 15 percent of Raider athletes go on to play at the collegiate level.

No matter their next steps in life, student-athletes depart Ransom Everglades with skills and values that help them lead and thrive.

Sports Performance at Ransom Everglades

Ransom Everglades offers its students a sports performance training program designed to meet the year-round strength and conditioning needs of student-athletes while enhancing physical education offerings for all students. Head Strength and Conditioning Coach Victoria Druehl and Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach Jake Caron assist students with sport-specific training regimens designed to develop physical competence, improve athletic performance and prevent injury, and they work closely with each of RE's coaches to integrate the performance training into their weekly practice plans and optional off-season workouts.

As members of RE's physical education faculty, Druehl and Caron also incorporate training principles into RE's physical education classes on both campuses. They are Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialists under the National Strength and Conditioning Association, the highest possible certification in the field. At the middle school, the goal is to provide an education-based training approach to enhance overall physical competency. At the high school, the goal is to achieve physical competence, improve athletic performance and decrease the risk of injury.

“The coaches at Ransom Everglades have, more than anything, inspired me. They’ve inspired me to be a better person and a better leader.”

Corey Goff, Director of Athletics and Physical Education

“We really view our venues as an extension of the classroom. We want our student-athletes to learn values and transferable skills that will pay off for them throughout their entire lives.”
