Volunteers ensure students have a healthy and consistent competitive sport experience. Competitions between our member schools has been increasing over the past 12 years, we now serve over 4500 students from more than 20 private international schools.

  • What if our sports program is developing?

    • Around 10 games per sport each season. There are usually 7 weeks of league matches with 2 weeks of tournaments at the end of the season. Our team of experienced competition organizers will arrange the ADISSA seasons based on the number of schools registered for competitions.
    • Schools can also arrange to play matches and tournaments in addition to their ADISSA league games.
  • Are there fees involved?
    • ADISSA is a not-for-profit organization and all fees are invested into the school sports program. The fees are calculated after facility hire, tournaments, and administration costs have been calculated. The fee structure takes into account the amount of teams you would like to enter.
