|Athletic Program||| Print ||
Athletics are an important part of the educational experience of our students. Research shows that children who participate in these activities are more successful academically than those who do not. Participation in our program gives students the chance to excel in ways which can make a huge difference in self-esteem.
Practices are normally scheduled for Tuesdays through Fridays from 3:45PM to 5:15 PM, not more than three training sessions a week. However, coaches may arrange other practice times with their respective teams. Parents wanting their child(ren) to participate in the Athletic Program will need to collect their child(ren) and provide transportation home after the activity. Participants are expected to attend all games and practices.
This year’s seasons are as follow:
Volleyball: August 22 through October 24
Basketball: October 31 through February 13
Soccer: February 20 through June 1
Each season will culminate with the participation in the ACAMIS (Association of China and Mongolia International School) tournaments: Volleyball (10/20/11- 10/22/11, Shanghai), Basketball (02/09/12-02/11/12, Shanghai) and Soccer (04/19/12-04/21/12, Dalian). DAIS will participate with both girls and boys teams, for all tournaments.
The general philosophy for DAIS athletics is to encourage all interested students to participate. Therefore, we encourage a no-cut policy. However, due to our involvement with and membership in the ACAMIS, we must adhere to the following tournament squad sizes:
-Volleyball (6-a-side, squad size 7-10)
- Basketball (5-a-side, squad size 6-10)
- Soccer (7-a-side, squad size 8-12)
Choosing the members of the tournament squads is the sole responsibility of the coaches of those teams. Students who will not be selected for the tournament will have the opportunity to play with local teams in exhibition matches.
