Athletics Overview

Through our athletes’ discipline, we accomplish our objective of providing them with a well-balanced education, developing athletes with olympism values such as excellence, friendship, and respect.

The Athletics Department at Colegio Interamericano seeks to provide students with an enjoyable environment that allows them to grow through their involvement in sports.

We believe that the best way to accomplish this is through their constant and disciplined participation. This helps students develop the courage needed to do their best in the different competitions and learn the values needed to accept the victories and the defeats as part of a real life experience.

Our teams compete at a national level and at the AASCA tournaments (Association of American Schools of Central America).

HIGH SCHOOL

Basketball, Volleyball, Athletics, and Soccer teams practice throughout the school year to represent our school in local tournaments such as the Copa Bi-Cultural and Liga Metropolitana. Both tournaments help our teams get ready for our main competition, which is the AASCA tournament (Association of American Schools of Central America). This tournament is held in different countries of our region.

Each sport has its tournament during a different month: Basketball – October, Athletics – November, Soccer – February, and Volleyball – April.

SPORTS DAY

One of the biggest school events is our traditional Sports Day, held during the Spring Semester. In the past, teams from different school would play against each other. Now, its objective is to bring our community together and have everyone participate in different games, rallies, and fun challenges.
