Athletic programs at Concordia are unsurpassed in Shanghai. For varsity athletes, level of play and access to competition are enhanced by travel across Asia.

Each season middle school athletes participate in Cross River Events (CRE) where they have the opportunity to experience competition at a tournament level.

At Concordia we seek to channel children's innate enthusiasm toward building sportsmanship, improving motor skills and having fun.

Our athletic program ensures that our high school student athletes learn life lessons in character, teamwork and resiliency. Their coaches are not just coaching them for a season, they are coaches for life. With 14 sports offered over three seasons, athletes can excel in their sport(s) and try their hand at others. Varsity athletes at Concordia experience unique opportunities as they compete against students from other international schools in Shanghai and around the world.

Seven diverse and competitive sports programs are available to middle school students interested in athletics. In grades 7 and 8, select teams are available in some sports while in grades 5 and 6, the focus is on learning to play and understanding sportsmanship. Students can also participate in middle school Co-Curricular Activities (CCAs), through which students learn fair play and develop interpersonal skills that are integral to life success, both on and off the court.

For those elementary students who love being active, Concordia teachers supplement physical education and play with engaging and educational Co-Curricular Activities (CCAs) that focus on getting physical such as Fit Club, Tennis and Kung Fu. Concordia also works with outside vendors to provide alternative sport options for a fee such as Kung Fu or Tennis. There are also sport opportunities offered by external organizations who use our campus facilities.
