Competitive Sports

The VIS competitive sports programme gives students the opportunity to compete against schools and clubs within the International Schools Sports Tournaments (ISST), Central & Eastern European School Association (CEESA), Danube Valley Athletic Conference (DVAC), Österreichische Schülerliga (Austrian student league) and at other local sports tournaments. VIS offers a range of sports to allow the students to experience and enjoy a balanced programme, which aims to develop an all-round athlete.

The role of the competitive sports programme is to extend and supplement the regular curricular programmes of the school. Its aim is not only to promote excellence in sporting achievement, but also to cultivate the qualities of good sportsmanship i.e. cooperation, team work, respect for others, both on and off the field, and the ability to both win and lose with grace. To this end, all our athletes are expected to exhibit the highest standards of responsibility and behaviour in their pursuit of sporting excellence.

We consider this programme an integral part of your child's education, and hope that you will encourage your child to take part. The following (junior) varsity teams for boys and girls compete in three separate seasons:

Season 1: Soccer, Volleyball, Cross Country
Season 2: Basketball, Alpine Skiing, Rugby
Season 3: Golf, Softball, Track & Field, Volleyball, Rugby, Tennis, Recreational Badminton, Beach Volleyball
