Sports Captains

Every team in each sporting discipline at Rhenish Girls' High has a captain.  The captain is chosen by her team mates and the liaison teacher and coach to lead the team for that season.  Being captain of a sports team is a leadership role at a school like Rhenish Girls' High, it is an honour and a privilege to serve Rhenish and her team mates in this way and the captains are encouraged to take their responsibilities seriously and to perform them with pride.

Responsibility of a Sport's Captain:
