Mini-Binationals is an ACCAS athletics event that provides our students to participate in a fun and competitive tournament with ACCAS schools within the country of Colombia. Traditionally Soccer, Basketball, and Volleyball compete on the same dates at the same school. However, this year we needed to adapt for biosecurity purposes. Here are the dates for our Middle and High School Mini-Binational events (pending biosecurity).

Transportation starting March 14 Logistics:
Previously enrolled with CNG transportation: CNG families who are already enrolled with CNG transportation will need to confirm any days and times that you would like for your child to utilize CNG transportation for Condor Activities or Athletic trainings. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or phone number 2123511 ext 120-321Requesting enrollment with CNG transportation: If you would now like to enroll with CNG transportation for Condor Activities or Athletics please contact email@example.com or phone number 2123511 ext 120-321, mobile 3203136879, 3102663836. They will inform you of the process and the cost.
Students Entrance and Departure Logistics- The same logistics of student arrival and dismissal will be maintained. Now that many families will choose to use the CNG bus service, we predict that the PS/ES student dismissal process could be more efficient. However, as CNG adjusts to the new schedules, we ask you to comply with the proposed times for arrival and departure. If personal transportation arrives too early or late is when traffic congestion occurs. Thank you for your patience in this process.

CNG Athletics Department Philosophy and Guiding Principles 2021-22:
The role of the Department of Athletics and Co-Curricular Activities is to extend the mission and vision of CNG beyond the four walls of the classroom. While the direct focus is strengthening the body to pursue competitive success, we also believe in sport as a vehicle for educating the mind and developing character. Our student-athletes may acquire the necessary tools to meet their potential for excellence in the future both on and off the playing field.
