Our football programmes are well organised offering continuity through the teams and year groups. The structure of our football programmes allows our best players access to high class coaching and allows those who are developing their skills plenty of opportunities to progress through the teams.

  • Football

The traditional values of hard work, dedication and sportsmanship are all held in high esteem, complemented by the commitment of the coaching staff to individual needs, personal welfare and every student’s enjoyment of the game.

Football is an integral part of the curriculum and is played competitively throughout the school from Year 3. For the Junior teams, the emphasis is on enjoying the game and each session is planned to challenge the players, whilst emphasising core skills at all times. As the players progress into the Secondary School, their basic skills are supplemented with more complex concepts as their understanding of the game grows. The emphasis for the U14 and U19 teams lies in developing greater consistency and improving performance through more structured practices and increased coaching time. The competitive aspect of the game is a prime focus for our senior footballers, and the teams will set their targets towards competing in the SISAC and ACAMIS tournaments at the end of the season.

Across the years our students have continuously done well in the numerous competitions and tournaments across Shanghai and further afield. Our dedicated coaches have continued to boost the abilities and skills levels of players.
