Athletics

At Dakar Academy, athletics are not just for the higher grade levels. Starting in kindergarten, students are encouraged to participate in a range of athletic activities that promote health and well-being. From team sports to clubs to DA's very own "Olympics," there are opportunities for every age group and skill level to practice physical health and good sportsmanship. 

DA students, representing more than 26 nationalities, gather together annually for their own Olympics, where they compete in a series of events.
