Robbie Dias

Part of Diamond Ranch Academy’s draw to parents around the world is its amazing athletic program. Robbie Dias has worked at Diamond Ranch for the past 9 years. His experience starting from the ground up has given him an edge in creating a competitive and motivating athletic department. Robbie began working in a nighttime staff position while he was attending and playing football at Dixie State College. He quickly moved from night staff to assistant program director, to Athletic Director. He has been in that position since 2005.

Since his advancement, DRAs’ clubs, activities, and athletic program have rapidly grown to an accredited 1A school. This accreditation has made it possible for both our boy and girl students to compete in athletics such as football, volleyball, soccer, basketball, baseball and softball.

In addition to the mainstream athletics, students are involved in cheerleading, music, art, fishing and many more. Robbie loves the athletic piece of his job the most. He enjoys watching the students compete in the various sports. Some students often times would not have the opportunity in their home schools to compete at this level. He has seen the students compete and win and gain all they can from sports.

Robbie’s yellow/blue personality is a perfect fit for his position. His personal motive in life is to have fun! He connects with the students by helping them enjoy their lives through clubs and activities. His blue helps him build solid relationships with the students and staff.

On a personal note…Robbie was born in Alabama but spent most of his life in St. George, Utah. He played football in high school and college. He served an LDS mission in Brazil. Robbie met his wife Carly while attending college. They have three awesome kids, Skye, Davyn, and Raider, and reside in Hurricane, Utah.
