At DBSJP, sport is about community and enjoyment. 

Sport plays a central role in the life of DBSJP and provides students with the opportunity to develop to the very best of their physical ability. Students are able to practice in their sporting interests and develop healthy, active lifestyles.

Opportunities are available through our House programme and everyone is encouraged to trial in order to represent. DBSJP is affiliated with the Dubai Athletic School Sports Association and will continue to follow guidance from them, the KHDA and the Dubai Sports Council.  Our provision is for everyone and based on the values of the school, the competitive program: achieve, a in house opportunities:  aspire and recreational opportunities: fun

Our sports fixtures are played throughout the week, with some events scheduled on the weekends. We hosts a number of sports and swim tournaments throughout the year and enjoys success in a wide variety of competitions throughout Dubai and the UAE.

We believe that regular participation in sporting activities instils passion, respect, integrity, resilience, teamwork, commitment and sportsmanship in our students and as a PE team we are passionate about developing physical and social skills
