We are Proud, We are Strong, We are Lions
The AISA Lions Athletic Program has represented the school for the last 25 years. The program has gone from strength to strength. We have age group teams starting in Elementary school, as well as Under 14, Junior Varsity (Under 16) and Varsity teams.
The school competes in a variety of sports, including Soccer, Tennis, Golf, Basketball, Volleyball, Track and Field, Cross Country, Tennis, Badminton and Swimming.
AISA is a member of three organized leagues:
- Junior Emirates Athletic Conference (JEAC) – A collection of six American schools in Dubai and Abu Dhabi providing activities for Grade 4 to 6 students in the UAE.
- Emirates Athletic Conference (EAC) - A collection of six American schools in Dubai and Abu Dhabi providing competition for U14, Junior Varsity & Varsity teams.
- Near East School Athletics Activities Conference (NESAC) – An international league with schools from all over the MENA region, including Lebanon, Kuwait and Qatar.
Our student-athletes model our school mission with respect, honesty and responsibility and we intend to carry on this tradition with our students continually growing and achieving. Our coaches and students come from a variety of backgrounds and this international approach enhances our programs and the experience of being an AISA Lion. Every member of the coaching staff is passionate about their sports and continues to maintain the highest possible standards.
