There are a variety of athletic opportunities for students at UNIS as part of the after school and weekend sports program. The Athletics and Physical Education Department is responsible for the administration and delivery of all after school and weekend sport opportunities at UNIS. This page provides information regarding the planned activities for each age group, and allows parents to register their child for sport sessions. Opportunities are available for all age groups during the after school and weekend program.
Our long-term athlete development (LTAD) model is utilized as the philosophical basis of the after-school sports program. The LTAD approach is a seven-stage framework designed to guide participation in sports from infancy to adulthood, one that focuses primarily on the needs of participants and their individual stages of development. It provides a point of reference for coaches, administrators, and parents and aims to provide the core skills needed to promote a lifelong engagement in sport.
All the activities are taught by members of the UNIS Athletics and Physical Education, while UNIS is proud to partner with the nationally renowned Alvin Ailey Dance Theater company. The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater has performed for an estimated 23 million people in 48 states, as well as 71 countries on six continents.
This program is only open to current and incoming UNIS families.
Any questions or feedback regarding after school and weekend sport program should be directed to Daniel O'Connor, Director of Athletics and Physical Education (email@example.com).
