Coach Rayson joined LCDS in 2014. He grew up in the UK playing the “big 3 sports”– rugby, soccer and cricket–as well as swimming competitively. After moving to Hong Kong with the Royal Air Force, Ian continued his sporting career as a triathlete and coach. After receiving his M.A. in Recreation and Sports Management and attending Reading University in the UK to obtain his Post Graduate Teaching Certificate, he embarked on his teaching career. He spent two years teaching PE in the UK and 11 years as a PE and classroom teacher at a private International school in Hong Kong. He loved running the sports days, camps, swim meets and extracurricular activities. He most enjoyed the annual overnight outward-bound camps, sharing his excitement for the great outdoors with students. A keen swimmer, he coaches and manages the LCDS Swim Team. He teaches PK, K and 1st grade PE, middle school girls’ hockey, the co-ed intramural program and tennis. His free time is spent “coaching” his wife and three young boys.
