News from TASIS England
The sun is shining, the fields are marked, the volleyball courts sparkling, the Fitness Center refurbished and the tennis courts are newly resurfaced and resplendent with the TASIS colours. Let the games begin! I trust that your start to the new school year has gone smoothly, and a busy week of gathering school-based information has been productive. I hope that you have had time to acquaint yourself with the many and varied extracurricular activities that are available throughout the school. More importantly, you should have received information from the sports/activities office on how your children may avail themselves of these opportunities. If you have not received any information, please do not hesitate to contact us. Students should have completed the sports/activities sign up procedure by now, or be ready for the auditions this week and try outs for team sports next week
Middle School auditions for Alice in Wonderland Junior by Lewis Carroll take place next Monday to Wednesday (September 5-7). The fall sports season commences on Monday, September 5 with the Upper School Fall Season Try-Outs. There are varsity and junior varsity girls and boys teams in soccer, volleyball and cross- country. The try-outs schedule is posted below, and students are encouraged to attend the try-outs of their choice. Although it is only possible to participate in one TASIS team during the season, students may wish to try out for different sports during the try-out period. If they do so, it is important that they communicate with the coaches. The try-outs are also open to eighth grade students, and they take place Monday to Wednesday next week (September 5-7). Upper School students who elect not to try out for a Fall season team sport or audition for the Fall theatre production have received an email with a link to the sport/activity sign up process. The Fall trimester of sports/activities for Upper, Middle, and Lower School commences on September 12.
Thank you to the Middle School families who have already submitted their sport/activity sign up forms on line. The Fall trimester commences on September 12. The Middle School team sports are also soccer, volleyball, and cross-country. There is no selection process for Middle School Sports teams and the students will be included in the team sport of their choice. Students who elect not to participate in team sports have a choice of recreational sports and activities, including the very popular Middle School Fall theatre production (please note that recreational sports may have limited numbers due to facility restrictions.)
The Lower School activities program will commence on September 12. Lower School students should have received information on their club assignments via email.
The Saturday Intramural Soccer Program for grades FH-8 and Tennis for grades 3-8 commences on September 10 on the North Campus. The Intramural Sports Program is separate from the school's sports/activities programs. There is a small registration fee for the participants, and the program takes place on a Saturday throughout the school year. If you have any questions please contact Sharon Hudgens.
