Home of the Phoenix
Here at Concordia International School Shanghai, our interscholastic athletics program is an integral part of the student experience.
The athletic department at Concordia International School Shanghai seeks to provide an experience of Christian competition that enables students to develop their athletic skills. Students will also learn the value of Christian sportsmanship through the building of relationships with teammates, coaches and with God. The Concordia Athletic program builds on the lessons that students learn in the classroom, promoting values from commitment and resilience to selflessness and cooperation. Our many different athletic programs give our community a focal point for school spirit and pride. Competition brings together students, faculty, staff, and families to root on our teams. Furthermore, athletic events against association schools allow us to connect with other communities beyond our campus.
Our commitment to athletics is reflected in our numerous, diverse offerings: 66 teams, across 30 sports, are fielded each year. We are a member school of four activities conferences: APAC (Asia Pacific Activities Conference), SISAC (Shanghai International School Activities Conference), ACAMIS (Association of China and Mongolia International Schools) and CISSA (China International Schools Sports Association). Each of these conferences provide our students different experiences. Some offer the opportunity for travel to countries outside of China, some within China and others within Shanghai.
All of our students have access to top-notch, on-campus facilities - four gyms, a FIFA Two-Star soccer pitch, an outdoor track, tennis courts, softball and baseball fields, as well as spaces for our sports medicine and strength and conditioning programs.
It is an honor to be part of a progressive athletics program here at Concordia!
Proud to be Phoenix,
