ATHLETICS

 
Physical Education
 

We value health, teamwork, sportsmanship, and physical fitness at CAPS. Students in all grades have Physical Education (PE) class twice a week. Students learn badminton, basketball, baseball, football, rugby, running, soccer, volleyball, and yoga just to name a few. Students also learn to make personal goals and are supported in reaching them. All skill levels and abilities are supported and hard work is a must!

Our new outdoor gym facility offers students a full sized court to learn the fundamentals of sports, improve their physical fitness, and meet personal goals. The outdoor gym is equipped with a full-sized basketball court, full-sized volleyball court, indoor soccer-sized court, 

Our weight room is fully equipped with weights, resistance equipment, cardio equipment, and a padded floor. 

Girls and Boys Rugby

Rugby started at CAPS in 2015. We were one of the first schools on the island to organize a school team.

 

We've teamed up with the Curaçao Rugby Foundation (CRF) to learn from the best. They've also organized high school tournaments where CAPS students have had the opportunity to compete against and teacup with other student Rugby players in Curaçao.

Several of our students have gone on to join the Curaçao National Rugby team and have represented our school internationally. Their skill level, sportsmanship, and dedication model the pillars of our athletic program.

Boys Basketball
 

CAPS' longest standing sports team started in 2014 with Coach Pete.

Boys in grades 6-12 come together as one team to represent the school. Our first season we were able to play against one other school, but now we compete against multiple schools and teams. The season typically runs throughout the second trimester (November-February). All skill levels are welcome as our team goal is improve and represent the school with the highest level of sportsmanship.
