CAC Golf Classic Form:
Welcome to the Athletic Department’s section of the website. I hope you find all the information you are looking for in the sections provided and if not, please be quick to contact us with any questions or concerns.
The Athletic Department supports the mission of Cairo American College and contributes to the pursuit of excellence in the educational program. CAC believes that a dynamic and competitive athletic program is an essential element to the cognitive, personal, and educational development of our student-athletes. The Athletic Department is dedicated to providing the best possible learning environment to students for their physical, cognitive and social development.
We believe that CAC student-athletes learn a great deal from participation in competitive athletics; team membership provides experiences that help them grow and develop both in the athletic environment and the classroom. The lessons learned help build life-skills that benefit their development as contributing members of their community. The athletic curriculum contains opportunities in sportsmanship, the team dynamic, competition, conflict management and physical skill development.
The CAC athletic program emphasizes learning as much as any achievement gained through participation and competition. Development of the individual, commitment to the team, and respect for the mission of the school are all vital components to this process. While CAC recognizes our great pride in winning and our quest for excellence and success, it does not condone winning at all costs. We believe in fair and rewarding principles for all participants and do not support any behavior or pressure that might undermine good sportsmanship, positive relationships, and good mental and physical health.
New this year is our participation in the African/Mediterranean Athletic Conference (AMAC) that will support our JV teams. Also new this year, our Cross Country and Tennis teams will compete in the International Schools’ Sports Tournaments (ISST). CAC is a leading and active member of the ISST, and embraces all of its rules, regulations, aims and objectives.
I look forward to your child’s participation in our program. Please contact us if we can help in any way. Best of success to our athletes and coaches and please join us on the sidelines as a spectator for a game. Go Screaming Eagles!
