GISST Sports Teams
“Being a part of the ISS GISST program and having the opportunity to travel around Germany with my teams have been some of the highlights of my middle and high school years” ISS student
ISS GISST teams are competitive in nature and rosters will be decided by a try-out process when necessary. Students in grades 6 through 12 are invited and encouraged to participate. Varsity teams involve students who are 13 to 18 years old on September 1st of the school year in which they wish to compete. U14 teams involve students who are 10 to 13 years old on September 1st of the school year in which they wish to compete.
“Student first; athlete second” is the fundamental concept supporting the ISS After School Sports and Activity Program. Maintaining appropriate levels of work completion, attendance and achievement on course examinations is taken very by the ISS Athletic Director. After school sports and activities are extracurricular and can be put aside when a student is struggling academically.
The GISST teams have defined seasons:
Fall - August to December for Badminton, Football (Soccer), and Volleyball
Winter - December to March for Swimming and Basketball
Spring - March to May for Track & Field and Tennis teams.
The teams we offer each school year are:
