ISF is offering grounds and opportunities for young athletes from all over the world to engage in ISF's global school sport events, and all related educational activities.
Therefore, it is with a great excitement that we inform the ISF members / cities that the bids for organising Gymnasiade: ISF School Winter Games 2021 and ISF School Summer Games 2022, and beyond, are open.
ISF School Winter Games | Gymnasiade is an international sport event for students of age 13-18, organised every two (odd), host 10 different winter sports disciplines and welcomes over 1000 participants from all over the World.
The inaugural event was held in 2018 and hosted by Grenoble and French School Sport Federation, in liaise with the celebration of the 50th anniversary of Grenoble's Olympics. France welcomed the young athletes from all across the Globe and united them in a spirit of School Sport and Olympism.
Students did not only competed in their chosen winter sport disciplines, but engage in various activities on topics of education, sport and Olympic history, values known as Olympism and intercultural exchange. They also got to know the history and the culture of the city of Grenoble which 50 years ago lit the Olympic flame and hosted their older counterparts who today serve as their mentors.
The bid for 2021 is open. Read more on ISF School Winter Games.
