In our short history at Beijing City International School (BCIS) we have built a positive culture in our Athletics program - one where personal excellence is encouraged and nurtured alongside a broad participation base where all students are welcome to participate regardless of experience or skill level.
At BCIS we value learning in multiple and varied of contexts. The Athletic Program provides students and coaches with important opportunities for meaningful learning within and about sporting activities and importantly about oneself.
These learnings and the opportunities to develop friendships, personal character, organisational and leadership qualities are strongly supported within a diverse range of sports offered in age-appropriate competitive situations. At BCIS we consider such learnings and opportunities to be a valuable part of the development of the full potential of each student.
BCIS is a full member of two sports conferences: the International Schools Athletic Conference (ISAC) which operates across Beijing and Tianjin, and the Association of China and Mongolia International Schools (ACAMIS) which covers all of China and Mongolia.
Within these conferences, secondary school students have the opportunity to participate in soccer, volleyball, basketball and swimming teams over a season of approximately 8 weeks for each sport. There are also one-off tournaments in badminton, table tennis, tennis, cross-country running, golf and track & field athletics.
Opportunities also exist for elementary students to enjoy seasons of soccer, European handball, T-ball / coach-pitch softball, and swimming as well as one-off tournaments for table tennis, badminton and track & field athletics.
