Athletics are essential to the educational experience at BDS. Competitive sports encourage students to have fun and connect with their peers as they explore a wide variety of both popular and unique sports. As they build a strong athletic foundation, students practice being bold, fair and confident in their endeavors. With time, students understand that sports provide a meaningful boost for one’s academic achievements as well.
Throughout our program, we emphasize the importance of sportsmanship. Our coaches and staff believe it is vital for our students to learn to celebrate success and equally, learn to lose with grace, practicing resilience in the whole process. They learn that success comes not through talent alone, but through hard endeavor, persistence and teamwork.
Team cohesion formed during practice, games, team dinners is something intangibly unique and awesome. Multigrade sports teams often keep their friendship beyond the season, strengthening the whole school community.
Our students will also have the opportunity to participate in a number of prestigious sporting events with other international schools, and travel with their teams to compete.
BDS is planning to host a number of sporting competitions each year through regional school associations. These adventures will cultivate skills that serve them as they encounter a world of more rigorous competition in the future.
