Fall Sports 2016 Report

     I t is hard to believe we are half-way finished in the 2016-17 SAIKAC sports season. I want to thank our coaches from this half - Jeff Lynn for table tennis, Courtney Berry for boys volleyball, Christina Kottman for boys soccer, and Yulisa Cruz for girls soccer.
     F or table tennis some highlights were fielding our first girls table tennis team, Jiss/Hamza Yate winning Open doubles, Dharun S coming 2nd in Open Singles, and Shivam winning the U14 singles.
     F or volleyball we fielded our first boys and girls U19 teams and both teams were able to win matches in each tournament. We proudly hosted the boys U14 SAIKAC tournament, and our girls U14 team won their SAIKAC tournament championship.
     F or soccer we fielded our second boys U19 SAIKAC tournament team, and were able to win a match and stay competitive in the others. For U16 SAIKAC team our boys won all of their matches and were the number one seed going into the second day of competition. Though they didn't have the same success on day two, they fought hard even though they were missing a couple of key players. Our U16 girls SAIKAC team gave a consistently strong effort and came away with the plate championship.
     S ome of our second semester sports are already underway - boys basketball is practicing for a tournament in Bahrain at the end of January, and the girls netball squad is preparing for their tournament at the beginning of Feb. We'll get going with U14 boys and girls soccer after the winter break, as well as the girls U16/U19 basketball team. Their SAIKAC tournaments are in March (we will be hosting the U16 girls tournament here in Jubail). Furthermore, we hope to field a large Cross Country contingent for the annual meet at RT in Feb. T hanks again for your continued support of our sports teams.
     In the meantime, have a great winter break no matter where you may be!

     Go Jaguars!

Thank you!

MS/HS News for the 2016-17 school year

Hope everyone is having an awesome summer holiday, wherever you may be! As we are counting down the days to return to school, I wanted to prepare you for at least thinking about how you can prepare yourself if you were wanting to participate in our ASA and Athletics programs for the 2016-17 school year. This is especially pertinent for those of you who are perhaps in Europe or North America, as many products are easier/cheaper to obtain.

Here are some things you may want to look into purchasing if you are to participate in a sport or activity this year.

-Proper shoes for the various sports (soccer/turf shoes, running shoes, court shoes). You should not being wearing sandals or Vans, for example to practice, or even PE class!

-Proper eyewear - for example, Aramco is now requiring sports glasses/goggles for events at their campuses. (this may be easier to get in KSA, but just a good one to look into if you wear glasses). Of course contact lenses are good as well.

-Proper pads - Shin guards for soccer (you cannot play in tournaments without them), and knee pads for volleyball (optional).

-Gloves - Soccer goalie gloves for soccer, and possibly for softball

-racquets/paddles - For those of you playing badminton or table tennis, you should have your own for practice and tournaments. While we do have some, we reserve this more for physical education classes.

-Reusable water bottles - we now have coolers around the campus, so a reusable water bottle is best for this.

-Instruments - for example, Mr. Lucky wants to offer a ukelele ASA, but requires you bring your own. Mr. Yoon has a guitar ASA and this is also true. Finally, we could offer others, ie a harmonica club, kazoo club, etc. but you also need to provide your own.

-Any other specialty item that you can't find in KSA that you could use to create an after school club -think art supplies, electronic equipment, balls, etc.

Of course we have many materials to be provided by the school, but to truly excel, and to personalize the experience to your needs, you benefit more if you have your own equipment/materials in these cases.

If you have any questions, of course please don't hesitate to ask!

Enjoy the rest of your summer holiday.
