Parents at PE
AYA continuously strives to provide high quality extracurricular programs for its students. All programs are exclusive to AYA students and are provided during after school hours. It is our goal to be able to provide a diverse set of programs that expose our students to a variety of activities that promote a holistic approach to a life based on a healthy body, mind and soul.
If you have any questions about any of AYA’s After-School Athletics Programs, please contact the Athletics Director.
Participation in our athletics program is a privilege. Student athletes are role models. We expect our student athletes to rise to a higher standard. We believe the value of athletic competition complements the mission of AYA. Participation in athletics provides students with an opportunity to grow in the manifestation of Islamic character as they face and conquer challenges faced within the team and amongst the competition.
Our student athletes experience growth as they strive to master traits of selflessness, diligence, self-control, patience, courage, perseverance, humility, and submission. These experiences translate directly to real life during, and after, these formative school years.
“The best of you is he from whom good is anticipated and safety from his evil is assured; the worst of you is he from whom nothing good is expected and one is not safe from his evil.” (Tirmidhi, Sahih)
Athletics: Winning the Right Way
It is our belief that the sunnah of our beloved Prophet Mohammed (sw) should be implemented in every part of our lives and sports is no exception. AYA students are expected to play with and have shown heart, spirit, and the best of Islamic character. Every day, every minute, and every second is a blessing, a responsibility, and an opportunity to shine the light of our iman through our conduct (sportsmanship), leadership, and actions that positively affect the lives of others .
"There is nothing which is heavier upon the balance than the good character.” Reported by Muslim (4/1362/no. 6226)
