CMIS Athletic Department Philosophy
The CMIS Athletic Department recognizes extra-curricular opportunities as a way to stimulate intellectual, emotional, social, and physical growth outside of the classroom walls.
Our programs encourage a team-building approach that emphasizes leadership, commitment, excellence, and communication.
Our goal is to foster a positive student-athlete culture on campus through collaboration with students, parents, faculty, staff, and administration to ensure student-athletes remain academically focused at the same time that they are engaged in a dynamic, challenging, and safe learning environment.

Athletic Disciplinary Procedures
Student-athletes need to be aware that their academic performance and their personal conduct will affect their participation in CMIS Athletics. Any student who is on behavioral or academic probation will not be eligible for competitions for the duration of the suspension or probation.
It is expected that all student-athletes representing CMIS will abide by the Student-athletes’ Code of Conduct. Any breaches of this code of conduct will result in disciplinary action that aligns with the CMIS Student Discipline Policy. For incidents of a minor nature, coaches will be responsible for taking appropriate disciplinary action. For repeated minor incidents, coaches will remove the student-athlete from practice or competition and report to the Athletic Director. The Athletic Director will interview the student-athlete in the presence of the coach to determine whether any additional disciplinary action is necessary. For incidents of a serious nature, coaches will immediately inform the Athletic Director, who will evaluate the situation and determine appropriate disciplinary action that aligns with the CMIS Student Discipline Policy. The Athletic Director may also choose to impose a ban on the student-athlete’s participation in CMIS Athletics. The duration of such a ban is at the discretion of the Athletic Director.
This disciplinary action will be recorded on the athlete’s file, and will be reported to the Superintendent. Any actions of a serious nature that bring into disrepute the name of Chiang Mai International School will be brought immediately to the attention of the school administration. Such incidents will result in the athlete’s temporary or permanent removal from CMIS Athletics, and may also jeopardize the student’s continued enrollment at CMIS.
