Welcome to the Home of the Jaguars

At Team Jaguar, we are getting ready to re-ignite a passion for sport, health and wellbeing in our school communities. Our vibrant and diverse programmes of sporting and recreational activities provide maximum opportunity for participation, and subsequently, maximum opportunity for inspiration for all of our students and their families.

The Athletic Department is committed to providing a sports programme that respects the dignity of all participants, providing a breadth of opportunities in an inclusive environment that is designed to allow everyone to learn at their own level. We wish to promote high levels of active participation, whilst also enabling those who wish to pursue high performance in sport. To this end, we will work to ensure that every student’s sporting experience will yield satisfaction and rewards that may continue to enrich their lives long after leaving the school.

On a competitive level, the Athletic Department is determined to field well-coached teams composed of athletes who will represent the school with pride, enthusiasm and loyalty. Typically, our Sports Seasons are scheduled as follows:

 

Fall
August – November

Winter
November – March
Spring
March – May
Cross Country Basketball  Badminton/Tennis
Soccer Dance Track & Field
Volleyball   Touch (Rugby) Ultimate (Frisbee)

Fixtures are arranged on the same day as practices:

Middle School teams - Tuesdays and Thursdays. The focus of our Middle School teams is on participation and development. We aspire to provide teams for all MS students who want to play.

High School teams - Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. At High School, we will run teams at Varsity, JV and JJV level, as numbers dictate. The focus for JJV and JV teams is on development and refinement. The focus for our Varsity teams is high performance. Note: There may also be a limited number of Saturday games for both HS and MS, these will be detailed in the seasonal fixture lists.

ACS Egham is a member of two international sports tournaments, the ISSA (International School Sports Association) and the ISAA (International School Athletics Association), both of which involve a travelling commitment, unless we are hosting the event.
