The Sports department at ABC believes that involvement in sport and games has many benefits.  Participation will not only help to keep you fit and healthy but it will also help you to learn and develop important life skills that will help you in University and in later life when you enter the world of work.  These include: Leadership, Organization, Time keeping, Team work, Sportsmanship, Being gracious in victory and defeat, Communication, Sharing and listening to ideas, Planning and problem solving

Curricular Sport:

At ABC we encourage all students to be fully active in all Sports lessons. We use a range of games, dance, gymnastics, swimming, fitness and athletic activities as our medium to teach the above skills as well as the numerous other physical, emotional and social benefits that can be achieved through participation in sport.

Extra Curricular Sport

The department also offers an extra curricular programme of activities in which students have further opportunities to get involved in sport and exercise. Some of our activities are offered simply as fun clubs where you can learn a new activity, meet new friends, get fit and enjoy your leisure time.  Other activities are offered as competitive sport where we train with an emphasis on raising standards of performance in order to compete in various leagues organized by international schools in Baku and abroad.

Football, Basketball and Swimming competitions are the main sports we take part.

In addition to sport, all pupils from Reception upwards benefit from weekly swimming lessons from a qualified coach at the ABC on-site in our two swimming pools that are equipped with the latest technology.
