Message from Athletic Director

Home of the Phoenix

Welcome to Concordia International School Shanghai! The Athletic Department seeks to provide a wholistic approach to athletics by focusing on the lifelong lessons that are grounded in Christian values. We believe athletics can be a vehicle to teach courage, self-confidence, commitment, sportsmanship, a growth mindset, teamwork, and leadership. Our athletic programs give our community a focal point for school spirit and pride. Competition brings together students, faculty, staff and families to form the community that is Concordia’s culture. Furthermore, athletic events against association schools allow us to connect with other communities beyond our community.

The school’s 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: Asia Pacific Activities Conference (APAC), Shanghai International School Activities Conference (SISAC), Association of China and Mongolia International Schools (ACAMIS), and China International Schools Sports Association (CISSA). Each of these conferences provide our students different experiences. Some offer opportunity for travel countries outside of China, some within China, and other within Shanghai.

All of our students have access to top-notch facilities on campus including four gyms, a FIFA Two-Star soccer pitch, an outdoor track, and tennis courts. Additionally, Concordia has a sports medicine office staffed by a full-time athletic trainer and an impressive weight room for strength and conditioning training. We have also partnered with other local facilities that provide our students access to two fantastic swimming pools, a baseball diamond, and a softball diamond. I hope many families take advantage of Concordia’s vibrant athletics program this year.

Go Phoenix!

Couldn't make it to Thursday's APAC Tennis Opening Ceremony? Here's a quick recap of the event.

Concordia celebrated our first APAC Opening Ceremony of the year on Thursday with a great success! Our guest schools along with our Concordia tennis team were celebrated and the school heard rousing speeches about the importance of friendships, and the importance of supporting each other.

Senior captain Grace X. talked about her time at Concordia and her excitement of hosting APAC Tennis in her senior year. She also shared how her teammates and coaches have positively and permanently impacted her.

She was followed by teacher and cancer survivor Mr. Erik Paulson. He told his story from diagnosis to treatment, and finally his return to Concordia just mere weeks ago. He spoke eloquently about how the messages of love from around the world changed his outlook throughout the process and encouraged students, and families alike to think about those in their lives that they can currently support.
