Through the inter-scholastic and intramural programs, we emphasize that participation in
sport is a privilege and we encourage all students to take part. We have high expectations for
behavior, commitment, academic achievement and making healthy choices. As a reflection of
the ASB mission and values, our athletic program seeks to support our students as they strive
to excel. ASB Middle School students may participate in several competitive sports during
the year. ASIAC sports are divided into four seasons, these include: Badminton, Table Tennis,
Soccer, Volleyball, Tennis, Basketball and Swimming.
Middle School Sports ASIAC Program
This program begins with an intramural season that allows open access to every student
regardless of ability. These students may remain in the activity so long as they maintain an
adequate level of commitment through participation. The seasons last for 4-5 weeks and
practices are 3 times a week. After this time an intramural tournament may be the closing
event of the activity.
Coaches will select a set number of athletes based on merit to participate in a further 3 weeks
of team practices after the intramural season. From this squad a selected number of athletes
participate in ASIAC Tournaments. ASB either hosts an ASIAC tournament or our teams travel
to other ASIAC participating schools. All students participating in the ASIAC program are
expected to host visiting athletes as part of our reciprocal housing agreement.
SAISA Swimming and SAISA Track and Field
These two sports are part of our inter-scholastic program. There is no intramural season here
and students are selected as team members through a tryout process. Seasons are 10-12
weeks long and practice 4 times a week. Teams are divided by gender and age groups. All
Middle School student-athletes will either be in the 10-12 or 13-14 age groups. Students are
housed by the host SAISA School and are expected to participate in the reciprocal housing
scheme. As for all SAISA activities, students are expected to pay for travel costs.
Age Group Swimming
The age group swimming program seeks to develop competitive swimming skills in
competent or promising swimmers. There are two seasons in the year (fall and spring) and
each is seven weeks long. Practices are 2 times a week.
F.A.S. T. Fitness and Swim Technique
If a student has been or has ambitions to be a competitive swimmer, this program is for
them. It is a once a week session that will allow students to refine their competitive technique,
get fit, have fun and get ready for the next season.
Get introduced to the challenge course at ASB and learn the fundamentals of rock climbing in
a safe and secure environment.
