ISD Sportverein e.V.

We work together to create positive and enjoyable environments in which we develop happy, confident and responsible people through the international language of sport, integrating ISD and the local community.

The ISD Sportverein e.V. offers students and local community members the chance to compete against teams within the greater Düsseldorf region in a variety of sports. Training is typically two times per week and games are played on most weekends. Players and families interested in a Sportverein team must demonstrate the ability to dedicate themselves over an entire school year. It is common for older players to join both the Sportverein and NECIS as it provides the student-athlete significantly more playing experience, both locally and internationally, along with the opportunity for long-term dedication to a chosen sport.
