In 2006, we launched our team sports programme with an U-20 Volleyball game against CDNIS. Our novice team was defeated, but it was an important first step in developing a sporting culture at RCHK.

Since then, the college’s athletic programme has experienced dramatic growth and change. We now field teams in the International School Sports Federation Hong Kong (ISSFHK), the Hong Kong Primary Schools Group (HKPSG) and the Hong Kong School Sports Federation (HKSSF) and the Association of China and Mongolia International Schools (ACAMIS).

The RCHK sports team mascot is the Black Kite. The Black Kite is a bird that is native to Hong Kong; it is graceful, powerful, proud and loyal, and it is qualities like these that are important when a student representative pulls on an RCHK Black Kites team shirt.

The aim of our sports programme is to instil important values in our students; teamwork, commitment and leadership skills as well as a sense of fair play and a lifelong appreciation of health and fitness. It is also to provide opportunities for inter-school competition, in a wide range of sports.

We run a variety of individual and team sports throughout the year. Our teams typically practice for one to two hours a week and have a match each week.
