The goals of the CDNIS Athletics programme are Participation, Enjoyment, Success. CDNIS students have many opportunities to take part in a wide range of sports. We want our students to discover and develop a life-long love of sport through participation and we strive for and celebrate success at the highest level and at the personal level.
CDNIS sports teams play in two international school leagues, the International Schools’ Sports Federation of Hong Kong (ISSFHK) and South East Asia Student Activity Conference (SEASAC). CDNIS is a founding member of the ISSFHK. The league has over 40 of the top international schools in Hong Kong as members, and this is the Hong Kong league that our teams compete in. We are also members of SEASAC and 16 schools from Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Myanmar, China and Vietnam belong to this league. This is the highest level of competition for our sports teams. We compete in 13 SEASAC sports, as well as Arts and MUN throughout the year.
The sports season is organized into four seasons and features more than 20 different sports. Most teams are organized by age; U12/U14/U16/U20. The age depends on the student's age from September 1 of the academic year.
