Teams & Competition

We hope that you will find the time to support our teams by attending their matches and joining in on the fun and excitement of their friendly league competitions with other schools.


Team Sign-Up Process

  • All athletes are notified of season dates through announcements, the NAISR website, bulletin board notices, and by teachers.
  • Try-out forms can be found at the front desk or acquired from the Athletic office.
  • NAISR Athletic Agreement forms and medical forms must be completely filled out, signed and returned to the athletic department before the athlete will be allowed to participate.
  • A physical examination must be completed by the school nurse.
  • Tryout practices are for students as well as the coaches. Students are given two weeks to tryout in the sport and then they can decide if they wish to continue on the team. Coaches will advise the students as to their status on the team. Once a student decides to continue on the team, they must follow the team rules, guidelines, and expectations set forth in the Athletic Agreement and are committed to the team until the end of the season.

Team Membership

  • Any student who wishes to become a member of a Shark athletic team must be willing to accept the guidelines, rules, and regulations governing our sports programs. Additional regulations may be added by each coach for their respective sports and by a host school.
  • By joining an NAISR Sport Team, a membership fee is required which includes the official Shark logo practice and warm-up outfits. This is a one-time fee for all NAISR teams and includes the warm-up suits and practice (PE) outfits that are for the student to keep.
  • In addition to the one-time membership fee, a fee is required when joining a team which covers items such as transportation, officials, accommodation, coaches salaries, awards, facilities and tournament fees etc. This fee varies depending on the tournament venue and length of the season and approximately 50% of the total amount, as NAISR covers at least 50% of these fees to encourage sport participation.
  • Pride and school spirit are important aspects of school life and our teams. Shark warm-up suits are required to be worn to all games and sport events.
  • Students are encouraged to attend all scheduled team practices and athletic events. If a problem in attending is anticipated, the coach must be contacted personally. If absent from school on game day, permission from the school administration is required to be eligible to play.
  • If a student leaves during the season, he/she will need a written reason for doing so and may forfeit the privilege to join the next sport season.



The Northwest European Council of International Schools (NECIS) Sports Council organizes inter-school tournaments and has grown into an organization that boasts eleven member schools from seven different countries located in northwest Europe. NAISR teams attend the NECIS tournaments, which emphasize good sportsmanship, respect, full participation and co-operation amongst students from various international backgrounds and cultures.

The NECIS tournaments are held at various times of the year and, in addition, NAISR teams participate in regular weekend games. For many students, the NECIS tournaments provide experiences and friendships that last beyond their time at school and many alumni report that a NECIS tournament remains their abiding memory of their time in international education.

NAISR offers the following NECIS competitive sport (age is determined as of Sept 1), depending on the number of students interested:
