MESSAGES from

Athletic Teams ................................................. U-9 Football We love to play football. We have the biggest team with 18 players. Thank you to our Coach Jared, our parents, Coach K and Coach Jhet for making us play well this year. And, to Mr. Laurent for sharing Gatorade.

U-13 Football The U-13 Football Team is one of the strongest teams in Dragons Athletics and is composed of a solid group of players that have been training together for the past three years. Coach K and Coach Yuri helped to lay the foundation. Now, this unified group is ready to take their game to a more challenging level of football, under the supervision of Portuguese import Coach João Delgado

U-11 Football Playing is not all about winning, it’s how the team shows respect, courage, teamwork, and love for the sport. U-11 is a team that definitely 8 possesses these qualities and I’m positive that they will continue to show them whether they’re on or off the field. Coach Raymond

Several players have demonstrated excellence in their physical skills and shown commendable sportsmanship. Led by Captain and MVP Tan (7S), this team knows not the taste of defeat. Mammoth (6N) has shown his amazing left-footed skills at the wing position, as has Eiffel (7J) on the midfield. Name (7S) has shown incredible defensive skills. Goalkeeper Leng (7S) has awareness in the box beyond his years, and has saved sure goals on several occasions.

The U-13 football team is having a terrific season, committed to strengthening their skills in training, doing their very best on the field and displaying enthusiasm throughout their games. In the TISAC League, strikers from the other teams know that scoring against the Dragons U-13 Football Team is not an easy feat! U-15 Boys Football The football season is well underway and the U15 Boys are committed, enthusiastic and quietly confident as we approach the TISAC tournament in April. The Dragons are training hard and continually increasing their skill and fitness levels under the shrewd guidance of Coach Koki, whose first-hand experience as a top level player has been invaluable. I would like to congratulate all the players for giving their best effort thus far and wish them good luck as the season progresses.

Senior Badminton This year was not as easy as last year. We lost a couple of games and a set in qualifying rounds, as the opponents have all improved and there are a couple of new foreign players. The co-ed doubles team of Pat and Naam still whizzed through everybody for gold. Lee and Mook won second place in girls doubles. Coach Yatima gave our ace singles star Praew a few words of advice about finesse and placing,

and Praew was able to beat two girls who were much stronger. Khun Tiew also saved the day for our doubles team of Sun and Chris, with a strategy that helped the duo to come back in the finals to beat the team that had won earlier. Captain Ong faced the toughest opponent so far, but Ong’s athleticism and endurance from football kicked in when the games were tied 1-1, and he won by running his opponent in the third game to get the gold. Ong said, “Overall team champions for all of TISAC is that much more sweet the second time around”.
