ISOI encourages its students to become involved in athletics and provides a wide variety of choices in team and individual sports, varsity, middle school and intramural athletics, as well as regular physical education classes.
ISOI is a member of the South Asian Inter-School Association (SAISA) and competes with other international schools in Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bangladesh, Oman and Jordan. Tournaments are held in soccer, volleyball, basketball, track and field, cricket, tennis, badminton and swimming.
Every effort will be made to include all students who wish to try out for a team sport. Students who are not selected for a team are encouraged to continue practicing with the team as substitutes in case a team member is unable to participate. In order to participate in any school trip, be that for sports or other activities, students must have a minimum of 2.0 GPA with no F’s in the previous quarter and be in good behavioral standing.
