Sports

At UISZ we value the importance of sport in school, not only to build important characteristics and values, such as commitment, teamwork, sportsmanship and responsibility but also to develop skills. We also seek to install a sense of team spirit and community. Through this we aim to have balanced healthy students at our school. UISZ aims to bring the school community from different backgrounds and experiences together through sports and a common goal.

PRC (Pear River Conference) Primary sports exchange
UISZ participates in the Pearl River Primary Sports conference, which is a group of international schools in Guangdong province. Students in the primary school are exposed to sports and activity from an early age, not only through PE lessons and CCA but also through the house system. House competitions take place every Wednesday morning, as well as through the year, with the primary swimming gala and primary sports day. The main emphasis for students at this early age is having fun and learning the basic skills but, as the students become older, they are more exposed to some competitive sports. It would not be uncommon for them to have a friendly match of soccer or basketball against another international school in south China.

GISAC
The Guangzhou International School Athletics Conference is a local competitive completion set-up by six International schools in the Guangdong province. The mission of GISAC is to promote youth development by providing regular, competitive sporting contests in a well-structured environment for students of international schools in the greater Guangzhou metro area. The founding members of the GISAC are:British School of Guangzhou, Utahloy International School of Guangzhou, American International School of Guangzhou, Clifford International School of Guangzhou, Utahloy International School Zengcheng, International School of Dongguan.
