Backed by excellent sports facilities, a team of some of the country’s best professional coaches and dedicated athletes, DPS continues to garner achievements and awards in the fields of Basketball, Taekwondo, Swimming, Volleyball, and more, in regional, national, and international tournaments.

DPS– the home of the champions –strives to promote sportsmanship, camaraderie, discipline, and hard work among its athletes.


At DPS, there are two basketball varsity leagues, namely: the Mini Midgets Basketball League and the Junior Basketball League. DPS also has basketball clubs in different grade levels, to allow all students access to the sport.

The school has two gymnasiums, which are utilized for competitions and training sessions. Former PBA player and current head coach of the UP Fighting Maroons, Mr. Rensy Bajar, is the head coach for the junior team, while Mr. Jay-V Olea coaches the Mini Midgets Basketball League.

Many of our DPS Taekwondo athletes go on to join the Philippine Team. One such distinguished alumnus is Japoy Lizardo, whose list of achievements includes bagging the Gold Medal in the Southeast Asian Games in 2005 and 2011.


At DPS, we integrate swimming in the curriculum by making it a part of the students’ Physical Education class. Swimming is also offered as a school club and as a varsity. The school has three swimming pools– one Olympic- sized swimming pool, one toddler pool, and one kiddie pool.

The varsity team, under the guidance of Coach Albert Sermonia I, is multi-awarded in the Philippine Swimming League (PSL) monthly competitions as well as in the annual Nikki Coseteng Swimming Cup.
