Welcome CAISSA Athletes!
Message from Head of School Nicolaas Mostert
Welcome to Carol Morgan School! CMS is honored and excited to be hosting the CAISSA Season II Tournament with teams from Grand Cayman, Trinidad and Tobago, Venezuela, Ecuador and the Dominican Republic.
Competing in an international athletic event is one of the most memorable experiences in your life. Many years from now you will look back on your days in high school and you will not remember the math or social studies lessons. You will remember the great relationships you developed and the emotional experiences that touched your heart. I guarantee you will look back and remember coming to Santo Domingo and competing at the Carol Morgan School in CAISSA 2019. You will fondly remember the people you met, the games you played and the challenges you and your teammates overcame. You will remember the bonds that can only be created by sacrificing, practicing, and supporting one another as you work together as a team.
On behalf of the leadership of our CAISSA schools, we encourage each of you to challenge yourself in the spirit of competition, striving for the win through good sportsmanship while embracing this experience, which is unique to you as players.
I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the time and energy that has gone into preparing for, planning for, and providing for this experience. Please remember to thank your coaches, teammates, athletic directors, parents, and referees as well as all of those individuals who will work endlessly throughout this weekend to ensure you have a memorable experience.
We wish each of you an amazing tournament. Good luck to all the players and the school teams. Play hard, work together as a team, and enjoy our beautiful host country and city!
“We are not a team because we work together. We are a team because we respect, trust and care for each other.”
We encourage you to give everything you’ve got; embrace commitment and support your team. But always remember it is about the experience and the relationships. That is what you will remember.
