Sport plays a central role in the extra-curricular life of Dubai College and provides every student with the opportunity to develop to the very best of their physical ability. Every student is able to practice their sporting interests, which helps develop healthy, active lifestyles and social interaction.
Additionally, we believe sport reinforces the key values of passion, respect, integrity and sportsmanship within every student, which assists them to become positive, resilient and independent individuals who accept challenges and seek new opportunities.
We believe that the challenge of being a DC sportsperson helps our students to be aspirational in order to become the best version of themselves.
Representative opportunities are available at all levels of our Sports pyramid, beginning with a breadth of experience through our House programme, and those who excel at a particular activity are encouraged to represent the College in inter-school fixtures, organised by DASSA. At the elite level, our senior teams play in DASSA leagues, tournaments and many have regular tours overseas.
Dubai College hosts a number of high-profile sports tournaments in a number of sports, including cricket, netball and rugby and swimming. Additionally, the inaugural DC7s football and DC5s basketball tournaments are scheduled for February 2023.
Dubai College has a strong tradition of overseas touring in a number of sports, which has provided countless opportunities for our students to enjoy playing sport against different teams and cultures. We enjoy and enviable success in high profile events such as the COBIS Games and the National School Rugby 7s at Rosslyn Park.
Our netball squads will be touring the World School Netball Games in Loughborough, UK whilst our senior basketball team will be touring Singapore in October 2022.
In order to ensure that both students and parents alike are able to keep abreast of the number of clubs and fixtures on offer throughout our busy sports schedule, we have a weekly Sports Bulletin that is sent out on our weekly communication to parents.
