Berkeley’s swimming program continues to expand and we will be involved in meets against other international schools during a two pronged season.

Berkeley will be fielding swim teams at the Varsity, Junior Varsity and Elementary school levels for both boys and girls. Updates about swimming schedules and meets will be posted shortly.
Soccer season brings with it a lot of excitement and competitive action. Apart from normal GBAC league there will be our third annual Friendship Cup in November and the Soccer Sixes competition in March. As well as normal GBAC league play Berkeley will host to and visit other international schools in the area to compete in games on a friendly one off basis. As with all our other sports we will field teams to play competitively against other schools ranging from 6 to 18 years old. We pride ourselves on being able to field teams for both boys and girls in all age levels. This type of turnout shows the inspired sporting ethos we set on our campus and the winning competitive spirit will instill in all our budding athletes. A full and comprehensive set of fixtures for the GBAC league U9 and U11 boys can be seen here for the 2016-17 season. Results and match reports will be updated regularly. Varsity and JV for boys and girls will be announced soon.
