Athletics Director's Monthly Message - November 13, 2020

As I write the monthly AD message, we are transitioning towards the end of Distance Learning Athletics season with only 2 weeks remaining. The support from the community to continue to make Athletics an important area of the school shows that we need to keep pushing to be better! We understand there are numerous parts in the world that have practices and games as if there isn't a pandemic going on. But the reality for us EAB Bulls is that we need to go about this process of reintegrating into sport through the most sanitary and safe measures so we can protect our community. We are planning a return to campus (as we always have been) for Athletics in Grade 6-12, but please trust us, have patience, and stay tuned for our Athletics program plan in 2021. In the meantime, we need to honor the learning moments, accomplishments and memories made from the past months! Please continue to read below what is coming up for the EAB Bulls Athletics program!

This evening at 7:00 p.m. we will close the submission window for the Battle of Brazil Virtual Challenges! The student-athletes and teams for EAB have performed so-so to this point in the Battle. We are hopeful to see many submissions pour in!! Please remember we will have a Closing Ceremony that recognizes the following for the Battle of Brazil 2020!

Closing Ceremony Schedule
  • Wednesday, November 18 at 4:00 p.m
    • Soccer Awards Presentation
    • Cross Country Awards Presentation
  • Thursday, November 19 at 4:00 p.m.
    • Basketball Awards Presentation

  • Friday, November 20 at 4:00 p.m.
    • Cheer Awards Presentation
    • FINAL Closing Ceremony
      • Battle of Brazil Overall School Champions

Attending our Closing Ceremony for any of the listed dates will show our competitors that we stand strong and support our Bulls in any situation (or Battle)! There will be a Zoom link provided to the student-athletes that participated in this event starting the week of November 16th.

Lastly, I would like to end this monthly message with the reminder to Save The Date on Thursday, December 3 at 7:00 p.m. for our Virtual Distance Learning Athletics Awards Ceremony! We will honor our student-athletes, teams, coaches, and community members that have achieved new levels of learning in this situation of educational sports! Please don't miss this chance to see how far we've come as an EAB Athletics Community! We will communicate the invitation school wide in the coming weeks!

GO BULLS!

Athletics Director's Monthly Message - October 9, 2020

Hello EAB Bulls Community,

As we transition to vacation for a week and soon to our Blended Learning stage at EAB, Athletics remains with our Distance Learning Athletics offering. Technically, we are half way through our DLA season with this break! But in other news, we will not return to campus with our teams until further notice. I know this saddening for many, but we are not at this stage yet for Athletics or Activities. We will continue to be resilient during this time and implement our new initiatives and activities! 

In the past month we have empowered our student-athletes! I am proud to communicate that our Student-Athlete Leadership Team (SALT) has been formed!  We have a strong group of 12 Varsity members and 6 JV members!  Congratulations to Elisa Uccello and Mafe Furlan, who are our President and Vice President, respectively for the Varsity team.  Carol Khorramchahi (President) and Diogo Foresti (Vice President) have been selected by their peers to lead the JV SALT!  This group of 18 student leaders will be responsible for helping our EAB Athletics program move forward through collaborating on ideas that empower our student-athletes and teams!

Another exciting development that will begin after break is the Battle of Brazil 2020 Virtual Challenges for Basketball, Cheer, Cross Country, Futsal/Soccer, and Volleyball! The Athletics Directors of EARJ, Graded, and ISC have come together to find a way to provide Challenges from a virtual standpoint! Please stay tuned in the month of October as we are aiming to crown our Spirit Cup Champions and Battle of Brazil 2020 Virtual Challenge Champions in November before our Thanksgiving Break! Click here for details!

Lastly, our Virtual EAB Athletics Awards Ceremony has been scheduled to honor the dedicated student-athletes that have committed themselves to getting better in their sport, and more importantly, bettering his or her overall well-being during DLA! The ceremony is scheduled for Thursday, December 3 at 7:00 p.m. on Zoom! There will be awards presented to each team virtually, but each winner will receive a physical award from our Athletics program in the future!

Please don't forget to follow us on Instagram at @EAB_Athletics_ for updates and information about our program!

Athletics Director's Welcome Message - August 11, 2020

Hello EAB Bulls Community,

We would like to welcome everyone to what will be a memorable, innovative, and educational year in Athletics for our community! We are confident that we will form relationships, make memories, and develop our athletic abilities not only physically, but mentally too! My name is John Powell and I will be the full-time Athletics Director for our grade 6-12 sports program in this coming year!

For the past 10 years, I have been at the American School Foundation (ASF) in Mexico City, Mexico. I was involved in multiple sports at ASF as a coach from basketball to soccer to volleyball. I was the Athletics Coordinator for the last 3 years from grades K-12 that provided an educational sports program for over 1,200 student-athletes.

EAB holds many educational methods in Athletics that I have experience with. These methods and teachings are the central focus of the National Interscholastic Athletic Administration Association (NIAAA). I have completed numerous courses in the NIAAA and obtained my certifications as a Certified Athletic Administrator (CAA) and Registered International Athletic Administrator (RIAA). I am very proud to lead this Athletics program and will enjoy seeing our student-athletes grow in his or her character and abilities - day-in and day-out - virtually and eventually in person!

We will carry on the traditions already established in the Bulls Community, but in a different form this year.  As everyone is aware of our Distance Learning setting, we have to adapt to this new opportunity.  I stress the word opportunity because this is a time that all stakeholders in Athletics can take advantage of our EAB Mission of “Learners inspiring learners to be inquisitive in life, principled in character, and bold in vision.” Being bold in vision will be our main focus as we are exploring areas with our student-athletes and teams that may have never been thought of!

As we will need to adapt to this opportunity, we will also need patience. There are so many unknowns in regards to our return to campus, especially with our Athletics program. We can assure you that the health and safety interests of our students, coaches, parents, and staff are at the forefront in any plan we develop at EAB.  We ask that you have patience in our process during these times! When we have a set plan, we will be sure to communicate to our community! For now, please take the time to become adjusted to the start of our school year and Distance Learning. I will be in contact with our Distance Learning Athletics’ (DLA) offerings in the coming weeks! Go Bulls!
