Sports – Collegiate American School

Sports are both an integral and essential part of the total educational program at the Collegiate American School. The Sports Department aims to nurture and progress the skills of the students in a safe educational sporting environment. It is important that all involved - athletes, parents, coaches and administrators - act responsibly and cooperatively to ensure the success of the program. Emphasis is placed foremost on participation, cooperation and good sportsmanship,where coaches are teachers and role models for athletes, fostering positive attitudes, teamwork and respect of rules. It is very important that your child commits him/herself to the sport that they are selected for, and we expect him/her to honour that commitment for the full season.

This year CAS is participating in the DASSA League (Dubai affiliated School Sport Association – Secondary and Primary), JEAC League (Junior Emirates Athletic Conference), Sony football League and IVEI League (Innoventures Education). Every year we have grown and build the sports program, and we can proudly say that we have had some great achievements.  To become more successful, athletes are expected to adhere to the sports code of conduct and academic requirements. Representing a school is a privilege; therefore, commitment is a very important part of students’ development in sports.

undefinedParticipation in competitive team sports involves a considerable time commitment on the part of the athletes. Practices are held after school or early in the morning, and students selected for a team are expected to participate in all scheduled practices. The faculty is aware of sports schedules and will help students balance their academic program with their sports participation; however, the onus is on the students to advise teachers in a timely manner of their pending absences, to collect homework assignments, to arrange for make-up tests and to borrow class notes from classmates. In general, they need to keep up with all aspects of academic responsibility. We want all of our students to learn in a happy and caring environment so that they are able to develop all their talents to the fullest.

Parents are always encouraged to attend sporting events at CAS, but it is especially gratifying and encouraging for the team to have parents at away games. Participation in sports will help building a stronger community for our Sand Cats.

Kindly take the time to look at the Athletics schedule that CAS offers to the students. We are active on Twitter - @CasPeDepartment - and on the SandCats Sports Events Website www.cassandcatssport.com . Information about games and events, will also be displayed on the bulletin board next to the big gym.
