Sports

We value sports as a key component of balanced learning. We believe that physical activity is important for every student and we recognize that levels of interest, development, and ability vary from student to student.

Saint Maur encourages all students to vary their extracurricular experiences in order to enhance diversity in learning.

We schedule all Sports and Fine Arts activities in Middle and High School to take place on different days and times, therefore allowing students to take maximum advantage of the extracurricular opportunities available to them. Saint Maur organizes most of its athletic events and competitions through participation in the Kanto Plains Association of Secondary Schools (KPASS), an organization of International and U.S. Military-dependent schools.

In our Elementary program, students participate in physical education classes throughout the school day to help improve their gross motor skills and coordination. They develop basic understanding of game rules and strategy, while focusing on improving their own personal fitness, strength, coordination and teamwork skills.

There is also an extensive offering of after-school clubs to develop skills in areas such as soccer, basketball, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, kendo, dancing, multi-skills sports and cross-country running. All clubs are age appropriate and start from Montessori for 5 year old students.

Middle School students participate in mandatory physical education classes, and have extracurricular team, individual, and club sports options that emphasize teamwork, commitment, and sportsmanship. We offer various sports programs running throughout the whole school year. Middle School teams practice twice a week after school and have competitions mostly on Saturdays and a few on weeknights. As a part of the Middle School philosophy regarding Sports, competitive cooperation and gaining valuable sporting experience is the aim.  All students are welcomed to try out and participate and all athletes who are committed to the practices, contribute to games.

Extracurricular Teams & Competitions

Extracurricular sports are offered to students of all levels. Most sports have at least two teams with one A Team (advanced players) and one B Team (intermediate to beginner) based on the participating students’ abilities. In the fall season from the end of August to the beginning of November, we offer Boys & Girls Cross Country, Girls Volleyball and Boys Soccer. In the winter season, from mid November until mid February, we offer Girls Soccer and Boys Basketball. In the spring season, from end of February until the beginning of May, students can participate in Girls Basketball and Boys Baseball. During the season, the student athletes compete against other international schools in the KPASS league and also take part in a season ending tournament.

Other Sports Clubs

In addition, there are also a Ping Pong Club, a Tennis Club and a Running Club offered once a week as part of the extracurricular club program.

High School students participate in mandatory physical education classes up to Grade 10. High School students who are seeking greater skill development in a team sport have many extracurricular options available to them. High School teams practise three times a week after school and have competitions on Saturdays and weeknights.
