Hello Sports Fans
Under the umbrella of the LIS Parents Association, we would like to welcome all LIS parents and teachers who are enthusiastic about sport to join our LIS Parents Sports Club.
The primary aim is for parents and teachers to have fun - hopefully by doing this we can achieve 2 things:
1) Build a sporting community that creates camaraderie between our members
2) Introduce our children to the enjoyment that sport can offer, within an environment of fair play.
The club is open to all - if you are interested in joining a group or setting up one yourself, then please make contact.

Football (Soccer) Players
Parents and LIS/LIK members welcome to come play football!
Patrick sends a message on WhatsApp on Monday to ask who is playing. We can have about 5 players per team but if we have more than 14 people we will maybe have 3 teams with short games and 1 team all waiting to play the next game. Generally we have a warm up kicking balls around and start playing about 19:45.
Monday: 19:30 at LIS Sports Hall. We don’t play during the school holiday.

This is a non-contact team sport played with a frisbee. Although Ultimate resembles many traditional sports in its athletic requirements, it is unlike most sports due to its focus on self-officiating, even at the highest levels of competition!
If you would like to join this established group and have a game then please contact Mimy.
Mondays: Game goes from 18:00 – 19:30.
Start at 17:45 throwing around the Frisbee and warming up.
Contact Mimy Gardner at Jemima.Gardner@lis.school
