High School Athletics Director
A number of different athletics, activities, and clubs are offered after school for all SAS students through the activities and athletics programming office. Our athletics program consists of several different types of teams suited for all levels of players. Besides the teams that play to represent SAS—referred to as rep teams—there are also intramural teams, Eagle Pathway teams, Eagle Club teams, and IASAS teams.

The Eagle Athletics and Activities (EAA) office is now Singapore American School's one-stop-shop for all pay-to-participate activities for students in preschool through twelfth grade.
Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, the EAA program is offering the following activity options for season one.

The middle school Representative (REP) Sports Program offers over thirty ‘tryout’ teams that compete interscholastically in the 14U (14 and under), the 13U (tackle rugby), and the 12U divisions of ACSIS (Athletic Conference of Singapore International Schools).
REP team tryouts are held in the first few weeks of each season and once teams are selected, students practice and/or play up to three times a week. Practices begin at 3:10 p.m. and end at 4:15 p.m. Games and matches typically begin at 4:30 p.m. and finish before 6:00 p.m.
Games and matches are only scheduled Mondays through Fridays. Many of our students also participate in other outside of school programs, and we encourage them to do so by leaving the weekends free. However, on some occasions an ACSIS season will end with a tournament that may be scheduled on a Saturday. This date will be made clear early in the season by the team’s coach.
The middle school Intramural Sports Program aims to provide every student the opportunity to participate in a sport in a friendly, less-competitive setting. Intramural sports are mostly once-a-week activities from 3:10 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. and no experience is needed!
Everyone gets to play, and it’s a great way to get some exercise and have fun after school. There are no fees, students can make the 4:30 p.m. activity buses, and no intramural activities are scheduled on the weekends.
A student must have been born on, or after, June 1, 2005. These teams are open to all sixth, seventh, and eighth students who meet the age requirement.
A student must have been born on, or after, June 1, 2006. These teams are mostly sixth and seventh grade students, though a few eighth grade students still meet the age requirement.
A student must have been born on, or after, June 1, 2007. These teams are mostly sixth grade students, though a few seventh grade students still meet the age requirement.
SAS maintains a comprehensive high school athletic program in accordance with the other IASAS member schools (Interscholastic Association of Southeast Asian Schools). The athletic calendar is divided into three competitive sports seasons with 13 different varsity-level sports.
Sports currently offered include:
First Season: Cross-Country, Soccer, Volleyball
Second Season: Basketball, Rugby, Touch Rugby, Swimming, Tennis

Additionally, ninth graders, junior varsity, and varsity teams compete in ACSIS (Athletics Conference of Singapore International Schools) competition, friendly matches with local schools, colleges, and community teams, as well as exchanges with other IASAS schools which are organized during each season.
The Singapore American School high school athletic department invites you to participate in the many interscholastic athletic programs offered at SAS. We invite you to join us in representing “The Eagle Way!"
At SAS we believe our student-athletes learn a great deal by participating in interscholastic athletics, and we constantly strive toward the goal of the "well-rounded individual." Grit, ownership, determination, perseverance, achievement, sportsmanship, teamwork, and communication are but a few of the valuable lessons that can be attained through athletic participation, the building of self-esteem and self-confidence are ongoing processes during practice and competition throughout at a season.
By providing a variety of athletic experiences for student-athletes, our program helps students develop important habits and attitudes that prepare them for adult life.
Additionally, athletic competition naturally fosters school spirit and develops pride in the school and community for participants, students and spectators. Consequently student-athletes and coaches are expected to exhibit the highest level of conduct, both on and off the playing fields, as they are representatives of their team, school and community.
Indeed, student-athletes and coaches are expected to demonstrate proper respect for one another, opponents, opposing coaches, teachers, officials, spectators and the community. Competitive athletics provide excellent opportunities to teach our student-athletes the virtue and significance of the SAS core values:
We call the modeling of these core values whilst in the pursuit of excellence: The Eagle Way.
Student-athletes are selected for varsity, junior varsity, or freshman teams based on their demonstrated abilities. Our numerous programs are designed to accommodate as many students as possible. Unfortunately, “cutting” athletes from certain programs is sometimes necessary due to various constraints.
The goal of all varsity teams at SAS is to win. There is a distinction between this and “win at all costs.” Our aim at the varsity level is to win the game while demonstrating the Eagle Way. It is when the stakes are highest that the Eagle Way is most visible or most absent. We aspire to demonstrate the Eagle Way while we perform on the biggest stage. This is true for our student-athletes, our coaches, our administrators and our parents. We set these high expectations of ourselves in order to challenge ourselves to be better.
The goal of all sub-Varsity teams at SAS is to develop future varsity athletes. Freshman, reserve, and junior varsity players learn commitment, accountability, and sports-related skills and strategies that will prepare them for the varsity stage, to introduce them to the Eagle Way.
Students who choose to participate in SAS athletics at any level are making a choice that requires self-discipline, sacrifice, grit and ownership. Parents, siblings, friends are also asked to make sacrifices as a result of a student’s participation in SAS athletics. Sometimes this takes the form of foregoing parties, early morning practices, uniform purchases, and housing foreign guests for IASAS events. All stakeholders must be aware that participation in athletics is a privilege, not a right. The privilege of being an Eagle must be earned every day.
In conclusion, we take great pride in our athletic program here at SAS. We invite you to become an integral member in our athletic family. We believe that student-athletes are role models for our entire community. Consequently we are on watch to ensure that the Eagle Way standard is upheld.
With over 100 different after-school clubs to choose from, students can explore interests in a supportive and engaging atmosphere. All clubs at the high school level are student-designed and led by a faculty advisor who mentors and guides student participants.
