Primary School Sport: Starting blocks

STA Sport & ECA Sport reach all time highest numbers with the most amount of children ever signed up to enjoy our brilliant Sport Program!

ps sport

A record number of children have signed up for sports at St Andrews International School Bangkok. This year we have tried to give even more opportunities for our children after school. Dance has grown from one Dance team of 12 children to now 50 Year 5&6 children. Also, cheerleading has grown from one group of 20 children to over 60 children. What an amazing opportunity these children now have to dance after school and work towards performances together. 

Gymnastics has been given double slots to cater for the growing interest in the sport, with over 300 possible places being given to gymnastics in a week. Girls and boys Football team training has grown from 100 possible places to over 200 and our basketball girls and boys team training has grown from 30 possible places to 100. Tennis continues to grow with over 200 places available. 

These numbers are incredible and I have not even mentioned the number of different children within our ECA Sports program doing sports such as athletics, swimming, dance, gymnastics, football, basketball, touch rugby, badminton etc.

All our coaches and staff can not wait to get started and develop our children to that next level.

Nord Anglia Games

nord anglia games

One of our overseas trips during Term 1 is the NAE Games, which is a 2-day tournament combining basketball and tee-ball. This year we travel to Vietnam for 4 days. It is a great, fun tournament for the children and the PE look forward to taking the 20 children from Year 5 & 6 on the trip. Children will be invited on the trip once we have looked at both our basketballers and our teeballers. If you would like any further details about the trip, please do not hesitate to get in touch. 

Tennis

This year we had over 200 primary students and 100 students from High School come for the Tennis ‘Come and Try week’. It was a great start and we are delighted to see our children interested in joining the STA Tennis Programme. 

For those children who came for the tryout, please be informed that there will be an email informing the pathway/programs your child/children will be joining.

  • Tennis sessions will begin on Monday 9th September. Children are also encouraged to continue their development as part of our weekend programme if they would like.

Keep in touch

Please stay up-to-date by joining our STA Flames & Marlins Facebook group for parents and students who are part of our Sport Programme.

As it’s a closed group not open to the general public, please complete the questions so that we know if you’re part of our STA community.

Parents may post to this group and it’s been great to see some of your photos of our kids in action!

Sporting Conferences

We appreciate that you are often hearing different acronyms - TISAC, BISAC, FOBISIA - that we are involved in but may not know much about them. We hope that the following overview will, therefore, be useful.

We are currently members of four conferences or organisations:

TISAC: Thailand International Schools Activities Conference

We have been members for many years. This has 16 schools involved which vary in size from small to very large. Currently, we mostly enter Blaze teams in TISAC. There are leagues and tournaments in several sports from U9-U19 and next year, TISAC will also start its own multi-sport Games for Primary children.

BISAC: Bangkok International Schools Athletic Conference

This is our first year in BISAC. The 12-school membership includes the largest international schools in Bangkok in leagues and tournaments across many sports, from U9-U19, split into four seasons through the year. BISAC schools also run invitational tournaments.

FOBISIA: Federation of British International Schools in Asia

This has three major multi-sport Games per year (Primary, U13 and U15) that take place in Phuket against other schools across Asia. There are also single-sport events in Tennis, Golf, Swimming and more, which take place across Asia and provide some amazing travel opportunities.

NAE: Nord Anglia Education

We are part of the South East Asia division and meet for a U11 multi-sport Games once a year. Our schools take it in turn to host the NAE Games.

In addition, we are part of the wider circuit regionally which means we are invited to a whole range of other events across Thailand. 

Currently we are able to offer STA students opportunities through these conferences in Football, Basketball, Swimming, Tennis, Badminton, Golf, Teeball, Track and Field, Triathlon, Cross Country.

If you have any questions about these conferences, please don’t hesitate to contact Mr Damon (damon.se@standrews.ac.th).
