Volleyball here at Nord Anglia International School Pudong is played by both girls and boys and has gone from strength to strength which lead to record numbers at girls competing at the SISAC level. Both the boys and girls senior teams have had great success, which can be attributed to their commitment in the hours they put in during preseason.
Currently the Pudong Tigers compete in East division of SISAC and have fared well against their competitors. The success story of the volleyball team is during the knockout competitions, where many competitors have been put to the sword with the girl’s teams taking 1st place followed by both terms taking a respectable 3rd place at the ACAMIS Tournament in Hong Kong.
The success of the seniors has made our CISSA squad hungry for victory with numbers at an all-time record high. It is also, positive to see the senior players attend training in a coaching capacity and seeking to develop the skills of junior squads that will stand the school in good stead for the future. Volleyball at Nord Anglia International School is fast becoming a very popular sport and continues to grow; anyone is welcome to sign up for trials and training.
A member of staff manages and coaches each Volleyball team. All coaches have a good level of playing and coaching experience.
It is our aim to provide every student in Years 7 to 13 with the opportunity to represent the school in Volleyball fixtures. We field teams in the CISSA league and SISAC leagues where we play against other international schools in Shanghai and surrounding provinces.
Fixtures are played throughout the school year in a competitive and sporting spirit. Teams play a strong and well established fixture list, which is becoming more competitive as Volleyball gains further popularity at all international schools.
We also host and attend regular tournaments which involve a full day’s schedule of competitive games.
