Athletics at ASL
ASL believes that a dynamic athletics program is essential to the education and character development of its students. The athletics department is dedicated to providing the best possible learning environment for the physical, cognitive and social development of its student-athletes.
Regular season competition
Starting in Grade 7, our teams compete with local London schools as well as with other international schools in Europe and beyond. Teams often travel to Belgium, Germany and France for matches and games.
LSSA and ISST events
The International Schools Sports Tournament (ISST) provides a venue for athletes from member schools to compete in an environment that is safe, challenging, professional and educational. Each athlete is given the opportunity to demonstrate his/her best athletic ability, while maintaining a spirit of respect and cooperation with fellow athletes from various international backgrounds. The London Schools Sports Association (LSSA) is composed of the American School in London, the three ACS international schools campuses of Cobham, Egham and Hillingdon, as well as TASIS and Marymount. These institutions compete on a regular basis as an entity on the varsity, junior varsity and middle school levels.
Athletic trainers are healthcare professionals who collaborate with physicians and specialize in prevention, emergency care, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of sport-related injuries and illnesses.
Our in-house athletic trainer is a full-time faculty member, available to help ASL students with injuries and injury prevention.
