The philosophy of the athletic programme at NAISR is consistent with that of the school in every aspect, and has been developed to meet the needs of our students in the Primary and Secondary school. Considering our school size and family-type atmosphere, students are encouraged to join for the unique opportunities and the social interaction that occurs within our sports programme.
Our athletic programme is comprised of intramural and inter-scholastic competitions, meaning some students practice and play along with schoolmates (intramural, called the CLUB PROGRAMME) while others play against other schools or clubs (inter-scholastic, called the NECIS TEAM PROGRAMME). Considering only a certain number of students can be in a team for competition, our coaching staff will do their best to see that every student feels that he/she is contributing, progressing and having fun in sports through our Player Pathway (Dream, Believe, Achieve!)
At NAISR, students in Years 3 - 9 are required to wear a PE kit. The PE kit can be ordered online here: https://playerlayer.com/eu/teams/nord-anglia-international-school-rotterdam/pe-kit.html
