Creating Successful Students in School and in Life

AISG boasts the most extensive athletic program of any international school in South China, giving our student athletes the opportunity to participate in the widest variety of sports against other schools both internationally and within China.

Athletic Conferences

AISG is a proud member of the international Asia Pacific Activities Conference (APAC), a member of the Guangzhou International Schools Sports Association (GISSA), and founding members of Southern Delta Region Conference (SDRC), and Pearl River Conference (PRC). Students at AISG have the opportunity to represent the school and develop friendships with other athletes during numerous sporting events throughout the year.

Athletics in the Elementary School

Our Elementary School Athletics program provides students in grades 4 and 5 the opportunity to participate in age-appropriate practices and competitions.  Students begin to learn the necessary fundamental skills, rules, tactics, and strategies specific to each sport.  Our coaching staff work hard to create a safe and positive learning environment that focuses on the process rather than the outcome. The participants also learn the importance of preparedness, teamwork, commitment, and sportsmanship.  These attributes will serve them well as they prepare to transition into our middle school athletics program.

Athletics in Lower Secondary

The Lower Secondary Athletics program offers students an unrivaled opportunity to explore and experiment with the widest range of individual and team sports of any international school in the Guangdong province. Over 90% of Lower Secondary students participate in at least one or more sports throughout the year. In addition to individual sports offered each season, we field multiple teams in Soccer, Touch, Volleyball, and Basketball for both girls and boys.

AISG is a founding member of the Pearl River Conference (PRC) and Southern Delta Regional Conference (SDRC) with students participating in over 40 tournaments each year in addition to hosting a variety of invitational tournaments and scholastic games each year. 

Our coaching staff work hard to create a safe and positive learning environment that focuses on the process rather than the outcome. Our inclusive policy allows for students to pursue their athletic interests regardless of their ability. Students are placed on a team that best meets their needs in terms of ability, experience, and physical/emotional readiness.



Athletics in the Upper Secondary

Our Upper Secondary Athletics program extends and enhances our school's mission by offering additional opportunities for students to develop their physical, social, spiritual and emotional well-being. 

Athletes in this program have the opportunity to participate in a number of interscholastic conferences unlike any offered at other schools in Guangzhou. These include the international Asia Pacific Athletic Conference (APAC), the regional Tri-Cities tournament and the local Guangzhou International School Athletic Conference (GISAC).
