The Athletics Department at PDSD prepares its student-athletes for success both on the playing field and in the classroom. Students learn important values like teamwork, sportsmanship, discipline, integrity, and a dedication to excellence. At PDSD, students have the opportunity to immerse themselves in a wide variety of athletic opportunities at virtually every level. With sports, students are not only having fun and bonding with their peers, but they are also developing critical leadership and social skills while learning the importance of a strong work ethic to future success.

For our student-athletes, nothing quite compares to the enormous sense of pride they feel competing as a Phoenix Day School for the Deaf Roadrunner! On behalf of PDSD Athletics and its coaches, we look forward to having another great sports season and to bringing out the very best in our hard-working, dedicated and spirited student-athletes.

Let’s show what we have here at PDSD! Let’s make some ROADRUNNER NOISE!
