Dear ISF Family,
We are very happy and proud to be your host for the 1st ISF Gymnasiade School Winter Games, which will be held in Erzurum, Türkiye’s ski center, between 11-19 February 2023.
As one of the oldest ISF members, Türkiye has long displayed its commitment to school sport, participating in ISF events regularly each year. Now we are excited to be the home to its first-ever Winter Gymnasiade. Erzurum is an excellent ski resort and has hosted many international competitions in winter sports in the past.
The two most recent being very successful competitions and with large attendance. Those who participated in the World University Winter Games 2011 (Universiade) and European Youth Olympic Festival 2017 returned home with unforgettable memories from Erzurum, while the people of Erzurum showed the participants the highest level of Turkish hospitality.
Now we invite you to participate in 1st ISF Gymnasiade School Winter Games to share the same experience with us, as we bring the international school sport stage to Türkiye. I hope you will all look forward to the experiences that await you in Erzurum, as we eagerly anticipate hosting this next ISF Gymnasiade.
