WISS Tiger Athletics

Home of the Tigers

Our Athletics Program serves many purposes – giving our students a chance to make new friends, stay in shape, and compete athletically on a local and international level. Because we believe a healthy body is key to a healthy mind, athletics are a continuation of our school mission “Inspiring minds to shape the future.” Our Athletics Program is aligned with the objectives of our school and we promote an environment of collaboration, perseverance, and integrity.

Our facilities, coaching staff, and wider WISS community all support the mission of our Athletics Program. At the Western International School of Shanghai, the WISS Tigers give our community a sense of pride and school spirit! PN- Grade 10 students have the opportunity to develop their sportsmanship, team building, and athletic skills through our Physical Health and Education courses, but our WISS Tigers take these skills to the next level through competition within our school community and Shanghai community!

WISS Athletics Philosophy

At WISS, we believe that athletics is an integral part of the school setting. We are committed to offering team sports designed to broaden the experiences and education of those students who participate. Our primary objectives are to develop in our student-athletes the skills required by specific sports and the skills that will help them be successful in their adult lives. WISS believes that student-athletes have an additional responsibility as ambassadors of the school and expects them to adhere to a personal code of conduct consistent with the values of sportsmanship, scholarship, integrity, and commitment to oneself and their team.
