Who do we play?

Games will be arranged against some of the other twenty-five international schools that are part of the Athletic Conference of Singapore International Schools (ACSIS). Please visit their site to see a list of participating schools.

Important statement about organisation and sign-up – PLEASE READ:

Students need to enrol via the online Activity Sign-up system. There are NO try-outs. Teams will be selected to compete against other schools on a weekly basis but we cannot guarantee that Away games will be on the practice days or that all pupils will be able to play in school matches. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, the team will be doing one of three things:

i) practising at home at 3.10–4.20pm,

ii) playing a game away (leave approximately 3.15pm and return at approximately 6.30pm) or

iii) playing a game at home. This will start no earlier that 4.30pm. (“Why so late?” Because other teams need to travel to us and other age-groups in our school need to use the facility.)

The actual schedule will, therefore, be dependent on the fixtures. We will endeavour to have an accurate schedule available in the first week of the season which will be displayed on notice boards and emailed to students and their parents.

What do we do after the season is over?

Join the next sport in season!

Or, if you would like to pursue the sport all year then we suggest that you sign on with one of our community sports partners who provide great coaching and playing opportunities at weekends.

Who can I talk to if I have questions?
