Physical Education

A comprehensive program of physical education (PE) and sports is another cornerstone of ASH’s philosophical commitment to each child’s full growth and well-being. Our Transition Kindergarten through grade four, co-ed physical education program strives to teach students skills for active lifetime participation through fun and movement-oriented activities. The focus is on fitness, individual improvement, cooperation and the development of a healthy and active lifestyle. Creative, age-appropriate activities are taught in a safe and structured environment. Elementary school students have their own facilities, custom designed to meet the needs of growing, active children. Outside of the Physical Education curriculum, Elementary School students can sign up for after school sports and movement activities.
After School Activities
Individuals and groups both at ASH and in the community offer a variety of clubs & activities. Up to date information about these opportunities for elementary school students appears in the school’s weekly newsletter The FLASH and on our private community portal called InsideASH (login is required).  Some of these activities take place seasonally. Below is a list of usual activities offered at American School of The Hague.

Field Sports
The ABF International Sports Club, whose fields are adjacent to ASH, organizes weekend team sports for girls and boys ages 4 through 15. For all information contact the ABF directly.

Many ASH students take swimming lessons at the Sterrenbad, the local Wassenaar pool, which offers small group lessons to children of all abilities. The ASH Swim Team invites competitive swimmers from Grade 3 and 4 to try out. Practices are held weekday mornings before school and swim meets are held both at home and away.

Group tennis clinics for a fee take place once a week after school in the school’s sporthall. There is also a tennis camp during the beginning of summer break. For information visit InsideASH or the FLASH.
