The benefits of participating in school sports are well-documented and include physical fitness, cognitive development, personal well-being, and social integration.
On top of that, participation in school sports can challenge critical thinking skills, decision making, and moral reasoning. Participation in school sports also allows students to take on leadership roles and responsibilities.
Here at Clifford International School, we are proud to offer a comprehensive athletics program where students have an opportunity to participate in a variety of sports in a way that meets their individual needs in regard to experience, skill level, and interest.
CIS is a proud member of two reputable sports conferences in the Pearl River area: PRC (Pearl River Conference) and GISSA (Guangzhou International Schools Sports Association).
Through participation in these conferences, students are able to further develop their skills as athletes and build lasting friendships with other athletes while representing our school at a variety of sporting events during the school year.
We also provide intramural sports during our lunch hour. Intramurals are a fantastic way for students to explore and try out school sports in a friendly and supportive environment.
