Combat Games 2019

Hungarian School Sport Federation - HSSF

Is the biggest civil organisation in the fields of youth sport and education in Hungary.

The Federation, founded in 1987, went through a major transformation in 2012, extending its mission beyond school sport: HSSF decided to support teachers to implement quality physical education, and to promote health-conscious, future-oriented lifestyle through regular physical education and fitness assessment. The mission of our organisation is therefore significantly wider today than it was before: the main goal is to increase the number of children who are actively involved in physical activity programs and promote the concept of health-enhancing physical activity (HEPA) and grassroots sport.

HSSF also participates in promoting values like volunteering and social integration through physical activity. To effectively follow these goals, we are also keen to further strengthen our international activities.

Without aiming to give an exhaustive list, we are proud to emphasize two elements of these activities:

HSSF managed to build up a brand-new pan-European event on the basis of Hungarian School Sport Day, which ‒ since 2017 ‒ is a key event of the European Week of Sport, the initiative of the European Commission. By 2018, HSSF and its partners reached 30 European countries with the European School Sport Day® (ESSD) and are committed to further develop the program at international level in the next years.

HSSF, as a member of International School Sport Federation (ISF), has aimed to develop method of hosting an international sport event, develop better services and provide memorable stay for the participants. Recently we successfully hosted two ISF World Schools’ Championships: cross-country 2016 and swimming in 2017. On the basis of these experiences, HSSF’s team and cooperating sport federations determined to organize a unique and memorable event for the participants of ISF Combat Games 2019.
