Sports Teams & Athletics

At The British International School of New York we are delighted to offer a varied and robust competitive sports programme. Designed to offer exposure to new skills and areas of interest, as well as encourage master across the field of sports and athletics while promoting new friendships, our sports clubs and teams vary from term to term.

Beyond the classroom our team sports provide another opportunity for our students to engage with their team mates and peers at schools across the city. Whether it is our BIS-NY Bulldogs playing autumnal soccer in Central Park, or winters spent on the basketball court, school pride and spirit are proudly on show through our soccer, basketball, swimming, track & field and tennis teams; competing against local independent schools in the American International Private School League.

Competitive school sports are available to all students in Year Six upwards, and we are fortunate to be able to use our partnership with Asphalt Green among other world-class facilities to give these teams the best possible spaces to practice and improve.
