Athletic/Sports Teams

The athletic program at the Universal American School, Kuwait advances the academic mission of the school. It affords all students opportunities for intellectual and social growth in a number of areas such as sportsmanship, self-discipline and the principles of civility and camaraderie.

UAS encourages our students to participate in the athletic program’s diverse offerings where integrity and ethical conduct in and out of the playing arena are prized.

All coaches at UAS are educated to incorporate the school’s academic mission into their approaches: from teaching the fundamentals of the sport to training at higher levels of skill and competition. Coaches foster the idea that leadership and team membership are responsibilities rather than rights.

Friendship, tolerance and respect for oneself and others, dedication to excellence and love of challenges, team commitment and loyalty, and above all, enjoyment and fun, are highlighted and integral at all levels of the sport experience at UAS.

The Universal American School’s athletics program has established a strong regional reputation for excellence and sportsmanship. We believe that participation in these programs is an integral component of a student’s holistic development.

Our Varsity and Junior Varsity teams have the opportunity to play against teams in Kuwait as well as regionally. Our JV and varsity teams travel around the region to compete against other schools in Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, and Oman. This presents our students with the wonderful opportunity to compete across the Middle East, experience other cultures, and learn about different societies.
