The American School of Paris believes there is more to an athletic program than the final score. We strive for competitive excellence but also for the personal development of our student athletes by helping them learn and understand the importance of commitment, attitude, sportmanship, teamwork and communication in an international setting, both on and off the field.
Working with professional coaches, educators and the wider ASP community, our program fosters a sense of pride and accomplishment; whether it’s improving their personal best, perfecting a skill or being an exemplary houseguest when visiting other international schools.
We are proud that our athletes are respected internationally both for their achievements and their sportsmanship. We hope our athletes have fun, win humbly and lose graciously.

Varsity and Junior Varsity Program
Our Varsity and Junior Varsity teams are chosen during try-outs at the beginning of each season. Both the JV and Varsity teams compete against and travel to other international schools throughout Europe. The Varsity teams in all sports (plus the JV athletes in cross country, swimming and track & field) travel to a season-ending International Schools Sports Tournament (ISST) each year.
Varsity practices for all sports (plus the JV athletes in cross country, swimming and track & field) are Monday, Tuesday and Thursdays, from 3:45-6:00 and the JV practices are Tuesday and Thursday from 3:45-6:00 (exception: JV tennis practices Monday and Thursday)
The ISST website (ISSTsports.org) and our handbook (see the right banner below results and announcements) have detailed information on age eligibility and numbers of athletes per team.
ASP is proud to host the 2013 Track & Field Championships May 22-24. More than 200 athletes from 11 visiting teams will be participating in the event and you can help! If you can open your home to a few athletes please connect above for details. THANK YOU for your support and generosity!
