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!

Sincerely,

Turner Neal
