AD's Welcome

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!

Turner Neal

Season 2 & 3 registrations will re-open after break! Be sure to register prior to the start of the season in order to participate in tryouts.

Season 2 & 3 Athletic Registrations will re-open after break on SchoolsBuddy. Registering for a team is required to participate in tryouts.

Registrations should be completed by a parent or guardian. There are important agreements and information regarding APAC/JPAC homestays, team travel information, and a copy of our new Athletics Handbook. 

We will open this registration to students who will be in G8-G12. Students in High School will have the first opportunity to fill roster spots; however, we will welcome G8 students if open spots remain. As a reminder, APAC does not allow 8th graders to participate. JPAC does allow G8 students to participate, but is only offered in Basketball and Soccer. 

APAC/JPAC Homestays for 2019-20
Turner Neal

Complete our survey to provide a homestay to visiting APAC/JPAC students for 2019-20 school year!

As part of the Asia-Pacific Activities Conference (APAC), and the JV version (JPAC) are a big part of the co-curricular experience at Concordia. Along with 11 other international schools, Concordia strives to create both a collaborative and competitive environment that fosters cultural exchange and growth for our students. A big part of that cultural exchange is having traveling students stay with families from the host school. These are commonly referred to as homestays.

Providing a homestay is a great opportunity to have a cultural exchange in your own home while providing a service for Concordia. It also helps set the tone for future Concordia students who will rely on the hospitality of other families when they travel on APAC or JPAC. Although families of APAC and JPAC participants are required to participate, other families are also invited to host students. 

In order to better organize and pair homestays this year, we are asking interested families to complete a short survey. With this information, we hope to complete our homestays for the year and reduce the stress for all involved parties. You can complete the survey here.
