The mission of the Walworth Barbour American International School athletic department is to provide opportunities for all middle school and high school students to participate and experience the benefits of sports while being part of a team. Our sports program is inclusive and competitive.
Athletics as an extracurricular activity is an integral part of our students’ education and growth at WBAIS. Our department strongly believes that everyone is an athlete– therefore WBAIS does not hold tryouts or limit participation, but emphasizes commitment and perseverance. Everyone is welcome to join the team and be part of the experience.
WBAIS has a strong and dedicated coaching staff who are not only instructors of the sport, but teachers of character and development. They strive hard to make sure that each student has a challenging and fun experience during their respective sports season, while not losing sight of their academic mission.
Students develop values such as time management, goal setting, work ethic, leadership and sportsmanship. Combined with a healthy lifestyle, these values build character and prepare graduates for success beyond WBAIS. The most important lesson that we impart is to never give up.
Our teams compete locally and internationally. Locally - invitational tournaments with local club teams and internationals schools, friendly games with local clubs, and an overseas trip to ISAA at the end of each season.
