Sport is an essential aspect of the educational offering of Cairo English School. We believe participation in our sports programme can serve as a crucial component for developing well -rounded inidividuals who display leadership qualities, tolerance, integrity and teamwork skills. We also believe that our students should have the opportunity to learn and compete in a variety of sports. Although students will experience lots of different sports and activities through our regular Physical Education programme, the CES sports programme allows players to test themselves in a friendly yet competitive environment whilst playing against other school teams.
Students will have an opportunity to try out for each of our teams and if successful, will represent our school in a variety of competitions.
Team Falcons are split into age categories and each student's date of birth determines which category they compete in. The categories are:
- Under 11
- Under 13
- Under 16
Currently we have teams for football, basketball, swimming, netball, athletics and volleyball. We are competing in the New Cairo School Sports Programme (NCSSP), where several schools compete against each other in a league format, as well as a tournament at the end of the season. We also compete in international BSME tournaments (British Schools of the Middle East).
Adhering to the league format, Team Falcons play our sports in seasons. The seasonal format allows our students to compete in more than one sport, which we believe is essential for their growth. The seasons are:
Team Falcons training sessions will be held after school on our superb facilities. Training is typically 3-5pm, however the training days may change due to fixtures. Therefore it is essential that each player checks with their coach, showbie or the sports notice board on a weekly basis, so they know when to attend training.
Although some students may not make the team, we believe sport is for everyone. Therefore, we will hold extra sessions during the off season to develop those players who did not make the team and to get them ready for the following season.
Below are the training schedule for Term 2 (2017/18). Please be aware that training schedules change on a weekly basis and some fixtures may be cancelled or postponed. These schedules will be uploaded a week in advance.
If students need to get the bus, then sport team players will get the 5:15 pm bus. However, if they are in a sports club (highlighted in green), then they can get the 4 pm bus.
