Activities & Sport

At Concordia, we take a holistic approach to athletics, fostering a growth mindset in our students. 

For us, sports are more than just games; they are opportunities to learn valuable life lessons in self-management, teamwork, and resiliency.

We teach our student-athletes that winning is not just about the score but also about developing self-confidence, commitment, sportsmanship, and leadership. Our expansive sports program fields over 60 teams across 30 sports each year, allowing students to explore their passions and hone their athletic skills.

Driven by Excellence and Competition

We celebrate community, and athletic competition provides a focal point for school spirit and pride, which brings together students, faculty, staff and families to form the community-based culture that is Concordia.


By the Numbers


Athletic and Activities Conferences

Concordia is 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).

Some of these conferences offer opportunity for travel to countries outside of China, some within China, and others within Shanghai. 

Asia Pacific Activities Conference (APAC)


The Asia Pacific Activities Conference (APAC) is an extracurricular athletics and arts program for international schools in the Asia-Pacific area. Since Concordia’s membership with APAC in 2008, we have shared and embodied APAC’s core values of “cultivating personality, sportsmanship, and international cultural awareness.”

APAC Statement of Sportsmanship

The purpose of the Asia Pacific Activities Conference is to provide a venue for athletes from the member schools to compete in an environment that is safe, challenging, professional and educational.  Read more.


Junior NBA Competition School

As a Junior NBA member school, we offer students age 6-14 specialized basketball training that focuses on the development of fundamental skills and an understanding of the core values of the game.


Competition Aquatics Program

From learning-to-swim to competing internationally, the Concordia International School Shanghai Aquatics Program provides our students with the ability to grow and develop at every level of swimming proficiency.

Coaches as Mentors

Concordia's athletic teams are coached by members of our school faculty, who play an integral role in shaping the character of our student athletes. Our coaches guide and encouraging athletes to perform at their best, pushing them to create growth and potential.

We believe that every team member is equally deserving of coaching and we strive to ensure that our athletes have a positive and educational experience.

Sports Medicine and Athletic Training

Our certified athletic trainer works closely with teams and coaches on sports injury prevention and educations and coordinates the best possible care for our student athletes should they experience a sports-related injury while at practice or during competitions.

The AT provides treatment and rehabilitation for all student athletes in our campus sports medicine facility. 

State of the Art Athletic Facilities

Our students have access to first-rate athletic facilities on campus including four gyms, a FIFA Two-Star soccer pitch, an outdoor track, and tennis courts. We partner with other local facilities that provide our students access to two fantastic swimming pools, a baseball and a softball diamond.

Phoenix Boosters

The Phoenix Boosters promote school spirit by supporting our high school athletic teams. During volleyball, basketball and soccer seasons, we run a concession stand on Phoenix Fridays. Hot dogs cooking, popcorn popping, and lots of candy. Just like America! We also open the concession during hosted SISAC and APAC tournaments. All are welcome to join the boosters!

We would like to do more to show school spirit, but it takes a village! If you are interested in getting involved, please contract our PSO President. Join the Fun!
