Our outstanding sports program
Nurturing healthy bodies and minds
Australia is a nation of sports achievers. At AISM, we believe that healthy bodies also nurture healthy minds, which is why sport is an integral part of our Australian education.
Sport for every student
At the Australian International School Malaysia all students, whatever their ability, participate in sport at some level. At our school, your child has the opportunity to enjoy and appreciate the benefits of physical activity, competition and sportsmanship.
Our sports programmes are about commitment, teamwork and enjoyment at all levels of competition. All our students from Foundation to Year 12 take part in the school’s swimming, athletics and cross country carnivals. We also offer a comprehensive swim and triathlon program for all of our students across the year.
Opportunities for top performers
AISM is part of several local leagues which provides an opportunity for students to compete against Government and other International schools in Malaysia. Such opportunities are presented through our participation in the International Schools Athletic Conference (ISAC), Majlis Sukan Selangor State (MSSS) Championships and other sporting competitions such as triathlon, duathlon and aquathon events.
In school, we offer a wide range of sport activities in our Co Curricular Activities program which helps students hone and practice their skills in their chosen sport. All of our coaches have extensive knowledge and passion for their sport. Some Co -Curricular Activities are offered by well-known sport coaches in Malaysia and others are offered by our own in-house specialist sport teachers.

The Australian International School Malaysia's Swim Squad (The Barracudas) trains before school and is aimed at improving students swimming ability for competitions through specialised training.
Every year, the squad competes in several competitions including the International School Athletic Conference (ISAC) Championships. We also compete on a regular basis in local and International swim meets.
The Barracudas is headed by our Development Coordinator and Head Coach for Swimming, alongside other highly qualified instructors, all of whom have received accreditation from AUSTSWIM, or FINA which are both professionally recognised in Australia and O/S
