Athletic Lives of Distinction

Athletic Distinctions

Ridley College has a rich history of athletic excellence. Our athletes have delivered championship-winning teams in hockey, rowing, and basketball and unforgettable moments in other sports for more than 125 years. Throughout the years, our athletes have demonstrated their mastery of the skills needed to play their chosen sport and honour the game. Many have gone on to make sport a key part of their lives.
