The UAS Athletic Department promotes the value of teamwork, the dignity of sportsmanship, the excitement of competition, and the benefits of regular physical exercise. We challenge student-athletes to reach their potential regardless of skill level or age. Our hope is that the students make a lifelong commitment to healthy habits and can participate with competence and confidence in physical activities.
The Elementary School UAS Athletics department emphasizes participation, having fun,
developing skills and teamwork, and good sportsmanship. All of the Elementary School sports teams are coed.
Soccer practices are twice a week for Grade 3 through Grade 5 students, and once a week for Kinder through Grade 2 students. UAS is a member of the Fútbol Intercolegial de Fraternidad Estudiantil (FIFE) league, which hosts games on Saturday mornings throughout the school year. Fifth grade students will also have an opportunity to participate in invitational tournaments.
Grade 3 through Grade 5 students can join the UAS Swim team. The Swim team practices year-round at Club Naval pool. Elementary School students compete in tournaments in and around Montevideo.
Basketball and Volleyball
For one quarter each semester, Elementary students in Grades 3 through 5 can participate in basketball and volleyball. These practice sessions are designed to develop fundamental skills and teach the game’s rules and strategies.
