GISST and Inter-School Program

The FIS Sports Vision

The FIS Sports Program strives to offer students the chance to develop through sports. Through a wide variety of sporting opportunities, students will have the ability to grow physically, mentally, and socially. Teamwork, dedication, goal setting, and a sense of community are the main components of the FIS Sports Program. Coaches and staff members all teach the same sports’ philosophy focused on fair play, individual and team growth, and having fun.

An Overview

The GISST Program offers opportunities for both international and local competitions for students from Grades 5 to 12. The FIS has been a member of the GISST (German International School Sports Tournament) since 2011, and competes with ten other international schools located within Germany. Football, Volleyball, Badminton, Basketball, Swimming, Cross Country and Track and Field are offered during the school year. Practices are held twice a week after school or once a week for the pre-season. Students from ages 10 to 13 play in the U14 League, while students between 14 and 18 years old play at the Varsity level. Games and tournaments mostly take place on Saturdays and occasionally on weekdays.

Additionally, we offer Cross Country and Swimming training and a possibility to compete for students from Grades 2 to 5. Other non-competitive sporting activities are offered to our students as a part of the After School Activity Program.
