ATHLETICS

Upcoming Events

There are no events to display

Welcome to Dallas International School, Home of "Les Tigres." Through participation in athletics, our goal is to develop a competitive character in our student athletes. As a member of an athletic team, students will learn to be strong leaders, communicators, and hard workers - and learn to achieve one common goal as a team.

Athletics and physical exercise are key parts of our fundamental approach to education, helping our students to become more prepared in mind and body for the rigors of our academics. Learning and practicing sportsmanship on and off the field contributes to a strong team approach to learning in all areas.

Athletics provides the opportunity for student athletes to exhibit a progression of physical skills and knowledge of a particular sport, enabling them to apply these skills and knowledge to new situations in a variety of learning formats.

Traditions

Dallas International School provides student athletes with an array of athletic programs and extracurricular sports. Through athletics, students learn the importance of commitment to a team, perseverance through adversity and how to demonstrate good sportsmanship on and off of the field. Our athletic programs challenge our student athletes mentally, physically and emotionally, and provide educational, as well as daily life, experiences. 

Dallas International School has been a member of the YMCA, Chamber, and SVAA recreational leagues for more than 15 years and has been a competitive force and winner of several league titles, all of which are proudly on display in the trophy case at DIS. We are members of the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS) so we compete at a higher level against other schools and develop traditions that will be passed on for generations.

Dallas International School is also a member of the Independent Athletic Association (IAA) for our Middle School students, grades 5-8 and our 7-8 grade teams have won the Soccer title in 2011, 2014 and 2015 while appearing in every final since 2011. DIS also holds State Soccer titles for 2016/17 and 2019-2021. Dallas International is also a member of the Junior Independent Athletic Association (JIAA) for our 3-6 grade students.
