Welcome to the website of the Northwest European Council of International Schools (NECIS) Sports Council. Founded in 1980 by three schools whose goal was to organize inter-school tournaments in basketball, soccer and volleyball, NECIS has grown into an organization that boasts eleven member schools from seven different countries located in northwest Europe. Our aim is to promote competitive tournaments in nine different sports at four different age levels – soccer, volleyball, basketball, swimming, tennis, golf, softball, track and field and touch rugby – that emphasize good sportsmanship, respect, full participation and co-operation amongst students from various international backgrounds and cultures.

Our major tournaments are held at various times of the year and, in addition, many of our member schools participate in regular weekend games. A NECIS tournament provides an outstanding opportunity for our young athletes to develop their athletic prowess while being guided by experienced coaches and officials. For many students, our tournaments provide experiences and friendships that last beyond their time at one of our member schools and many alumni report that a NECIS tournament remains their abiding memory of their time in international education.

I would like to encourage you to browse through our website to discover for yourself the opportunities that await our international students at a NECIS tournament. Take a moment to discover the outstanding educational programmes that our member schools offer their students by following the links to each individual school’s website. NECIS schools offer holistic programmes that are rich in educational excellence and extra-curricular activities – a whole world of learning awaits!

On behalf of my fellow athletic directors within NECIS, welcome to our sports tournament organization. We hope to see you soon at a NECIS tournament, whether it be as an athlete, parent, coach or official.

Neil Spencer, NECIS Sports Council Chairman.
