Junior Scorpions Soccer Program

Hello parents and students,

 

I hope everyone had a great first two weeks of school so far and that everyone is enjoying their classes.  Starting the week of September 23rd, we will once again be starting up our Junior Scorpions soccer program for grades 4, 5, and 6.

Junior Scorpions is a developmental program offered by UAS which gives students the opportunity to participate and learn the fundamental skills of soccer in a fun and safe learning environment while also staying fit.  Any student is free to join no matter their experience or skill level.  This program takes place after school on the field at UAS.

Our program is part of the JEAC conference which includes other international schools in the UAE.  The focus of JEAC is to reinforce the value of sportsmanship, respect, teamwork and self-discipline through healthy and fair competition.  During competitions against other schools all students will receive equal playing time and scores will not be kept.  The emphasis we put on this program is learning and fun.

This year we are going to have students purchase a Junior Scorpions uniform that includes a top, shorts, and a water bottle.  The uniform is required and can be purchased from the school store for 120AED.  The same uniform will be used for all sports (soccer, track and field, basketball) and will only need to be purchased once even if the child participates in all three.  These uniforms can be used the following school year as well, as long as they still fit.

If you would like to register your child for the Junior Scorpions soccer program please click the link below and fill out the google form.

You must also submit these three forms for your child before they are able to participate.  Once these are handed in your child will be covered for the entire school year.

    Hello,

    We have signed up our son Sebastian Habib for the Scorpions soccer. However, the online form link has arabic language writing and not sure we have completed it properly since we are not arabic speakers.

    Can you please confirm you have his information submitted and that we will be provided with necessary information in time.

    Thank you.
