Register NOW!

The online GISST registration is open now, and will close on Friday, September 9 at 9:00. To register your child to participate in the FIS Sports Program (GISST), please go to the FIS Parent Portal and click on the “Booking Activities” icon. You can sign up your child for any sport offered to his/her grade level this Fall season. Admission to any training group will only be possible for those students registered beforehand.

GISST Training Schedule for the upcoming Fall Season is available online and can be found in the Sports section.

Please note that for some sports (Cross Country, Football, Basketball, Varsity Volleyball), this is a regular season and there are two training sessions per week offered. It is strongly recommended to attend both trainings, and you are kindly asked to register online for both days if possible.

At the same time, we offer some prep-season practices that will take place only once a week.

You will receive an invoice at the end of the season for each sport category that you signed up for. Prices can be found on SchoolBase.

GISST Registration Fee

The GISST registration fee remains the same this school year, i.e. € 100 total per sport category for a regular season (two trainings per week), and € 37,50 for all pre-season activities. This registration fee is applicable to all participating students regardless of if they are selected to represent the school at friendly and/or national-wide GISST tournaments.

Accommodation at GISST Tournaments 2022/23

As of this school year, all GISST Tournaments that include overnight stay will be hostel/hotel based. There will be no family housing for SY 2022/23.

The accommodation for all participating student athletes and coaches will be arranged prior to a particular event by the FIS (in cooperation with a host school). Whilst the FIS will provide transportation and cover the tournament fees, families of students selected will need to cover accommodation costs themselves. These accommodation costs will include hostel/hotel, meals, bus shuttle from/to hostel/hotel to venue, and are currently estimated at about € 140-150 per person for a 2-day tournament. There will be no additional costs for participating in friendly fixtures.

Grade 2-3 (Intra-school) Competitions

Students in grades 2 to 5 are welcome to join the Cross Country and Swimming program, and will be able to take part in friendly fixtures in the course of this school year. There will be no national-wide GISST competitions offered to this age group for SY 2022/23.

If you would like any further information or if you have any questions about the GISST program, please get in touch with Mila Fischer, FIS Athletics Director at Mila.Fischer@the-fis.de.
