The Athletic Department supports the mission and vision of the American International School and contributes to the pursuit of our Expected School-wide Learning Results. We believe that a dynamic and competitive athletic program is key to the cognitive, social and emotional development of our student athletes, and we build school spirit through the AIS House System. All students are assigned a house when they join and they compete as part of the Red Phoenix, White Tigers, and Blue Dragons in a variety of events and challenges.
The competitive sports program supports and extends the regular curricular programs of the school. Its aim is to promote excellence in sporting achievement and to cultivate the qualities of good sportsmanship, cooperation, teamwork, respect for others, and the ability to win and lose with grace. To this end, our athletes are expected to exhibit the highest standards of responsibility and behavior in their pursuits of sporting excellence.
AIS sports teams compete in the International Schools Sports Federation of Hong Kong (ISSFHK). This league consists of 32 leading international schools in the Hong Kong area that compete over four (4), eight week (8) seasons of play, during a regular school year. At AIS, Middle and High School students may participate in the following sports:
