NECIS (The Northwest European Council of International Schools) and ISST (International Schools Sports Tournament) are inter-school sports organizations. Teams are formed based on experience and ability level. NECIS and ISST seasons are shorter than those of Sportverein teams. The highlight for NECIS and ISST teams is the end-of-season tournament, where schools from around Europe come to play for the championship. In preparation for this event, our squads play several ‘friendly’ competitions against other international schools. Since most of our NECIS and ISST players are also on Sportverein teams, we gain the unique advantage of playing more than most of our competitors, thus typically being well prepared come tournament time.
Typical sports include football, basketball, volleyball, cross-country, golf, swimming, track and field, tennis, softball, and rugby. NECIS and ISST tournaments take place all across Europe and in the past have included Amsterdam, Luxembourg, London, Antwerp, Bonn, Copenhagen, The Hague, Stavanger, Frankfurt, Geneva, Vienna, Hamburg, Munich, and Brussels.
