PreK-Grade 12 International Day and Boarding School in Kobe, Japan | Since 1913


At Canadian Academy we work hard, but the Falcons play even harder. We pride ourselves on the high level of participation of our students and encourage an 'active involvement' throughout the year. Our coaches emphasize work ethic and sportsmanship while maintaining high expectations of effort and commitment from all students.

Canadian Academy Athletics is committed to offering all students opportunities to participate in a variety of physical activities and competitive sport. The experience of athletics, while challenging and rigorous, is rewarding, and encourages athletes to reach the utmost of one’s abilities and potential. As we have a no-cut policy, students of all abilities and experience are invited to play and compete.

With our full-sized Eli-Lilly soccer pitch, as well as our smaller Nestle field, two gymnasia and tennis courts all located on campus, our Falcons are ready to host (and beat!) both local and international teams.

Cross Country Team

High School

With three seasons, each offering both a boys and a girls sport, our student athletes are challenged whether they are trying something new or have been competing for some time. Competing with other local, national, and international teams, our student athletes discover what it means to be a team player, while developing skills and a lifelong love of sports. With baseball, softball, soccer, basketball, badminton, volleyball and cross country on offer, our students are able to find and develop their passion. Each season ends with an APAC tournament that is either hosted by us or at another international school in the Asia Pacific region.

Our middle school student athletes hit the fields and courts for basketball, soccer, volleyball, cross country, baseball and softball. Our Middle school teams compete as a member of the Western Japan Athletic Conference (WJAA) which consists of international schools in Japan.
