The ISF U15 World School Sport Games will bring together school athletes from 13 to 15 years old in a multisport event (14 different sports), creating a unique context for high level sport competitions, educational programmes, and cultural exchanges. This event is a unique opportunity for the youngest to integrate the Olympic values and to better understand the benefits that sport can bring while familiarizing themselves with the challenges it faces.
14 different sports will be included in the programme:
Athletics, Badminton, Basketball, Basketball 3x3, Chess, Football, Judo, Karate, Orienteering, Swimming, Table Tennis, Taekwondo, Volleyball and Wrestling.
The competition is open to school students who will represent their schools (as individuals or in teams), aged 13-15.
Laurent Petrynka – ISF President: “It is crucial for ISF to address younger groups of people as we are living in a more complex and challenging environment. We believe that ISF along with our organisers and partners must help youth student athletes instil from an early age the establishment of a healthy lifestyle, the acquisition, and development of leadership skills and their discovery of competences whilst gaining a better understanding of the world. These are the main reasons for which we decided to launch the ISF U15 World School Sport Games. We are looking forward to meeting you all in Belgrade.
I call on all ISF members to take full advantage of this unique opportunity and register to this event, which will gather together younger groups of student athletes for an international event. Serbia is globally well known to be one of the leading organisers for international sports events. We are convinced that public authorities in Serbia and the local organising committee as well as the Serbian School Sport Federation are gathering all of their major resources and know how in order to deliver a fantastic event which will impact on the younger generations for years to come. “
Željko Tanasković – SSSF President: “I would like to welcome you to Serbia and its capital Belgrade, famous worldwide for sport. We are extremely honoured and happy that our country will be the first to organise the ISF U15 World School Sport Games. This competition will be special because finally younger students will have the opportunity to compete internationally, as well as being able to meet and socialise with their peers from around the world. Serbian School Sports Federation has organised some of the largest ISF events, such as WSC Volleyball in 2016, WSC Basketball 3x3 in 2018 and WSC Football in 2019, so our Federation has the knowledge and experience for organising big events. The year 2020 will be remembered as one of the worst years in history due to the Coronavirus disease COVID-19. Many sport competitions have been cancelled or postponed. However, we are ready to organise this event, and I assure you that we will take all necessary measures in order to maintain competition in the safest way. Our main goal is to make each participant feel safe, and to return home satisfied, leaving with the most beautiful experience and memories. That is the main mission of school sports. Lastly, I would like to thank the ISF for giving us the support and opportunity to organise these unique Games and write a new chapter in school sport history.”
