The programme features Opening and Closing Ceremonies with cultural components, a Youth Forum, the Bazar, a Theme and Slogan for the Games and a social evening for the youngsters. Educational values are at the core of FISEC, we are not just another sports organisation.
The sports within FISEC are of a high level. Programme, facilities, rules and regulations are in accordance with international standards and laid down in the annually updated FISEC Handbook. All sports are organised together with the local official organisations and referees. In addition each competition is accompanied by a FISEC OTI who has the task to observe both sports and educational values within the tournament. An important feature within the sportsprogramme is the so called ”Circle of friendship and respect” and the Fairplay trophy which is part of each competition.
