The goal of our Middle School athletics program is to provide students with the opportunity to experience a variety of sports and to enhance their personal skills in a competitive, yet supportive environment. Through positive interactions between both coaches and other athletes, it is our hope that students will develop skills and a lifelong love for sport.
Students sign up for sports in which they want to participate and no prior experience or expertise is required. Students are divided into teams with equal numbers of each grade level on each team. Some sports have limited numbers due to space restrictions.
ASD is a member of the Middle East South Asia Conference (MESAC), and in select sports, our Grade 8 athletes will have the opportunity to try out for high school MESAC teams that travel and represent ASD at tournaments throughout the gulf region.
ASD is also a member of Qatar United English Speaking Schools (QUESS), a sports league in Qatar. Select students from Middle School will be given the opportunity to compete in a season end competition with other schools that are part of QUESS for sports that are part of the organization.
There are four sports seasons within the middle school. These are aligned, when possible, with the seasons in which sports are played within the MESAC and QUESS organizations.
The exact dates for each sport can be found in the student planner.
