Sports provide opportunities for the release of youthful energy and for the development and coordination of the body. In addition team sports encourage the formation of lasting bonds of friendship among players and a sense of community and connection with coaches, parents and other schools.

We offer a variety of sports, all with a focus on traditional British values of fair play, sportsmanship and teamwork. Every student has an equal opportunity to participate, regardless of ability.

Football & Futsal

Football & Futsal are very popular and you will see games going on any time the students are outside. We also do extremely well playing against other Chiang Mai international schools as part of the CMAC (Chiang Mai Athletic Conference) calendar.

We compete in football and futsal during their CMAC seasons and enter teams at many different levels: U8, U10, U12, U14, U16 and U20 – both boys and girls teams (mixed boys and girls in the younger age groups). During the football and futsal seasons we schedule matches or team practices on Tuesday or Thursdays after school.
