SISAC (Saigon International Schools Athletic Conference) Season 1 has come to a close after a superb City Final win for our U13 Girls Basketball Team last Friday. It has been a pleasure to see the number of students representing BIS, and competing with the values so central to our sporting ethos. Congratulations to all of our student-athletes, and thank you to the superb team of coaches who made these experiences possible. Special congratulations to 7 of our teams on becoming city champs in season 1!
Next week will see the start of our SISAC Season 2 competitive fixtures, and we also wish the best of luck to our U15 FOBISIA Team who depart on Wednesday to compete in Thailand. Please follow the progress of all of our teams through our BIS Sport Instagram Page @bishcmc_sport.
U11 Boys A
The battle for the SISAC City Champs in the A pool is always a highly contested tournament. Emotions were high. Temperance was being tested. Expect the unexpected! Despite all these, a big salute to our boys who displayed all the attributes that is expected of a BIS student. Individual skills had been molded into a concerted effort. They might not have won the tournament but the experiences they learn are priceless, especially playing against the best U11 teams in Ho Chi Minh City.
U11 Boys B
The Boys’ B SISAC Football team travelled to SSIS to compete in the City Championships last week. 10 BIS athletes shared the pitch, creating a wonderful team environment supported by a series of outstanding individual performances. Enormous credit must go to the full squad who demonstrated the improvement that they have shown this year, and represented our School with the sporting values which have become central to each of their performances.

We took a squad of 12 girls to the U11 B team City Championships, which shows the amount of interest we have had in girls football this year. The depth of our squad is superb. This showed in our performance over the course of the day. We blasted our way into the first match with a 5-0 win against ISHCMC, some incredible goals from Myeisha and Amandine, we then went on to beat ABC and moved through to beat EIS 2-0 in the semi final. We played BVIS Bulldogs in the final, an all Nord Anglia final! The girls showed such determination and focus in this final, the moment never got to them, some outstanding goalkeeping throughout by Addison and strong communication and tactical knowledge led us to win by 1-0, making us the B league CITY CHAMPIONS! Huge well done to all the girls, you deserve this after a fantastic season.
