After the first wave of the pandemic and the lockdown that lasted from March to August, ISF member School Sports Federation of Serbia and its president Željko Tanaskovic, also a member of the ISF Executive Committee, are now entering the new school year with great optimism and some new rules to protect the health of students.
As last year, the School Sports Federation of Serbia will celebrate the European Week of Sport. The federation will first organize a project in which it will combine culture with sport. The project will be accompanied by school competitions and school sports events.
This year, the School Sports Federation of Serbia has a slightly different schedule; they will start with individual competitions, and in the second half of the school year they will compete in teams.
During the quarantine, everyone realized how crucial sport is in people’s lives. The federation decided to find a way to organize events, despite the hardships of the pandemic, aimed at supporting young people in shaping healthy habits (using sport as a learning tool).
The lockdown also forced the federation to embrace digitization and support youth through online activities. But Uroš Savi?, general secretary of the School Sports Federation of Serbia, remains optimistic: “We hope that we can get back to the ‘good old way’ soon, so that children and teenagers can make new friends again through sports and other projects. We want to encourage all ISF members to start organizing competitions, because everything is possible, if they want, of course, with all the rules.”
See you in Belgrade for the 1st ISF U15 World School Games, which will take place from June 26 to July 4, 2021.
