GIS Alerts (Emergency communication) | superintendents.office@gisthailand.org


Grace International School uses the LINE application to send information to the staff and community that is considered critical and needs to be communicated quickly. If you have not gotten connected, please click here for detailed information on how to install the app and sign up.  The official GIS Facebook page and email are other means of communication the school will use to communicate in a crisis/emergency, but the LINE app is likely to be used to get the word out quickly.

First things first: CONNECT with us through:

  • Facebook: We have a private Facebook group called “Grace Athletics” where we will share weekly updates (just like the one you’ll find here in the Roar), game day updates, photos and more! Our Facebook group is our main page of communication so make sure you join! 
  • Website: Our website (athletics.gisthailand.org) is our official page where you can find coaches’ names and contact information, the athletics’ staff’s contact information, rules and regulations, which sports are offered in which season, directions to various arenas and schools,  and more. Breaking news and urgent information will also be posted on the website.

  • Instagram: Our Instagram account is purely for FUN! Follow us for photos, videos and throwbacks of our athletic seasons.


  • With the school year starting online, ALL sports will be postponed until we are back in person


  • However, with that being said, we would still love to tell you which sports you can be looking forward to for season 1

*Traveling may look different this year than previous years

  • U12-U14 Boys and Girls Basketball
  • Senior Cross Country Travel Team
  • Varsity Boys and Girls Soccer
  • Senior Swim Team
  • Varsity Volleyball Boys and Girls Travel Team
  • Running Club (all ages)

  • This year we have a brand new jersey process for ALL AGES (for basketball, volleyball and soccer). Gone are the ratty, old, mismatched (cause we keep losing them *cough* varsity boys basketball *cough*) jerseys and here comes the new ones! 
  • For all the boys and girls who have made any of the Under 14 teams, you can purchase these jerseys in our uniform shop:

  • JV & Varsity: For all of our JV and Varsity athletes, starting from this year forward, once you make a team, we will send out a form asking for your last name, number(s) (varsity players get first pick and once they graduate those numbers will be up for grabs again) and shirt size. These jerseys will be yours to keep until you graduate, re-using them every year you make a team!

    Basketball Jerseys:


Soccer and Volleyball Jerseys:


For new families or families with kids joining our sports teams for the first time, we highly encourage you to read through our “Sports Overview” page on our website.
