ACS Doha Nets BE Basketball Partnership and Scores with Qatar National Team

Doha, Qatar – March 23, 2021:  With a mission to empower students through sports, ACS International School Doha hosted Qatar’s national basketball team player in a friendly game followed by a motivational session on the power of sports. 

The session was hosted at ACS Doha’s state-of-the-art sports facility where Qatar team captain Mizo Amin took on the school’s basketball team, the Doha Wolves. ACS Doha has been inspiring students to stay active and continue applying the lessons they learn through sport to achieve success in their daily lives. It was held in line with the ethos of the school’s sport’s mantra ‘Awaken Your Wolf’, which focuses on teamwork, resilience and mindfulness.

Mizo Amin, Captain of Qatar’s national basketball team, stated:
“It makes me extremely happy to see ACS Doha’s commitment to sports as a source of physical and mental well-being that is crucial for kids in their teen years. Exercise is very important for the body and soul. We had a great time playing with the Wolves and are excited to see where their skills will lead them – in basketball and life.” 

Chris Quinn, Athletic Director at ACS Doha, added:
“At ACS Doha, we pride ourselves on upholding the values of a holistic education, using the power of sports to promote the physical, emotional, and mental wellbeing of the community. For us, this has meant driving sports activities that engage students throughout the year to always empower our community.”
Cementing its commitment to sports, ACS Doha has also recently signed an agreement with BE Basketball, Qatar’s leading basketball provider.

Through this partnership, we are excited to bring our dedicated and professional BE BASKETBALL school programs on ACS Doha’s campus where students can learn about FUNdamental basketball skills first-hand from our professional trainers.”

ACS Doha is a strong advocate of extra-curricular and sports activities with many initiatives specifically catered to enriching students’ lives outside of the classroom. Despite (COVID-19) limitations, ACS Doha managed to engage its students in a string of extensive sports activities carried out throughout the year. These competitions have included hill sprints at Aspire Park, the “Up and Over” challenge at Al Bidda Park, online yoga sessions, and the Lusail Marina step challenge.

Additionally, the school has hosted interactive and innovative zoom workshops by Dr Greg Dale, the Director of Sport Psychology and Leadership at Duke University on topics surrounding the use of sports to champion success in day-to-day life through goal setting, commitment, and discipline. 

Physical education remains a key component of the curriculum at ACS Doha aimed at imparting new skills, encouraging fitness, and teaching about exercise physiology. The school offers a variety of sports activities including volleyball, soccer, basketball, swimming, cross-country and badminton, as part of its ongoing efforts to promote the emotional and physical well-being of the community.
