Welcome to Riverside Academy Lady Rebels Basketball. I am Kevin Dizer the Head Basketball Coach of the girls’ program. I am very privileged to have the opportunity to lead this program. We have the opportunity to build a special program here at Riverside. Not only do we have a chance to compete for CHAMPIONSHIPS, but we also have the fortune to change lives and mold future leaders in our community.
We strive to operate under the three pillars of success outlined by our athletic department:
The system that our athletic department has put together separates us from most. We train year round, including the summer, regardless of what season it is. That gives us an edge on our competition. That edge really shows late in the season, and gives us a much better opportunity to continue to advance.
As a coach I have a “come as you are approach”. We don’t want to shy anyone away from the program because of their playing history or lack of playing history. If a student is willing to come work hard we will find a role for that student. We have now built the program to the point that we compete at three different levels, Varsity, Junior Varsity, and Middle School.
My goal is to build a stable program that is built for long term success. We want to be able to compete for CHAMPIONSHIPS annually, and continue to build our program. We have already embarked on that journey, and the future is bright. Riverside Academy is a great place, and students are surrounded by a staff to help them utilize their talents academically and athletically.
Our door is always open, GEAUX RA LADY REBELS
The 2017-2018 Lady Rebels Basketball team made school history by not only advancing to the quarterfinals, but continuing their playoff run in the Rapides Coliseum for the semi-finals! They are also the St. Martin’s 2018 Tournament Champions!
Riverside recognizes the value of middle school athletics. Coach Raphael Neal has brought new energy to our Lady Rebels Middle School basketball program. Coach Neal has done a great job building this program in a short period of time. The number of players has increased dramatically and the enthusiasm in this program is building. The future of Lady Rebel basketball is bright.
