American School of Paris - Athletics Welcome


Both on AND off the field, we stand by our school’s mission and values and all that it embraces: commitment, respect, grit, sportsmanship, and teamwork.

ASP Athletics offers a variety of enriching sports and fitness experiences for children of all ages.  Across all 3 divisions of our school, our students become better team members, build confidence and appreciate the value of hard work and dedication.  Playing on a sports team at ASP furthermore encourages students to interact compassionately in our diverse, international community. 

Our sports and athletics program fully parallels with our school mission. Physical education classes are an integrated aspect of our curriculum - a true linking of mind and body and a holistic educational experience, and personal and academic excellence is what we strive for on and off the field.

At ASP, there is more to winning a match than the final score. Our teams are called “Rebels” and being a winning Rebel means doing your best. Coaches help students strive for personal development by helping them to develop their skills, and understand the importance of commitment, attitude, sportsmanship, and teamwork.

Be an ASP Rebel


 It’s the final seconds of the championship match, and the ball is passed to me . . .

My muscles tighten, my eyes focus on the goal. All that I’ve learned and practiced over the season has been for this moment. 

The chaos and blur surround me, but suddenly everything slows to a standstill and becomes crystal clear . . .

My teammates cheer me on, and I’m ready.


Learning from our experienced coaches and thriving on the support of our ASP community, students in our program will earn a sense of pride and accomplishment in all that they do, whether it’s improving on a personal best, perfecting a newly-learned skill, being an exemplary opponent, or simply giving a helping hand to a teammate. 

For our youngest Rebels in Grades K1 – Grade 2 (Mini Rebels) and Grades 3-5 (Little Rebels), we offer co-ed sports, games and fitness activities, which rotate over the three sports seasons of the school year. Some activities are after school and others on Saturday mornings. Everyone is welcome to join in!


ASP Athletics for All

We encourage all students get involved in sports! Physical activity plays a key role in a young person’s well-being, confidence, and development, and encourages lifelong healthy habits which support learning and success.

Students in Grades 6 – 8 (CADET Rebels) may participate in various sports and fitness activities, and games; the offer rotates over the three sports seasons of the school year. Everyone is welcome to join! The program runs on different days of the week after school and there are also competitions during the week or on Saturdays.
