ISST Division 2 Boys & Girls Volleyball Championship 2019
Dear Athletes, Coaches and Spectators,
On behalf of the International School of The Hague, I would like to extend a warm welcome to the ISST Division 2 Boys and Girls Volleyball Championships 2019 and the city of The Hague. We are delighted to welcome all teams to the competition, as ISH host Volleyball for the first time and look forward to three action-packed days of Volleyball.
For the past three months, 10 teams from 8 different schools have been training diligently to prepare for this culminating event of their volleyball season. As the volleyball tournament progresses, I expect to witness many exciting and close fought matches played within the true spirit of the game. Although only one team can end up as champions, it is important to remember that the strength of any team lies in the whole, not the parts! Instead of trying to be the best on the team, be the best for the team. A successful team beats with one heart!
The hosting of any tournament is a community effort and I would like to express my appreciation to all those who have contributed to making this event a success. I would particularly like to thank our host families who have so generously opened their homes to you this week. Without them, tournaments of this nature would not be possible.
As the ISST organisation enters a new chapter and celebrates its 51st year, it is important to recognise how fortunate we are to be part of such a well-established, organised and prolific program for students to experience such sporting opportunities and success. Enjoy this special experience!
I hope at the end of the tournament you are all able to leave having had a positive experience filled with many happy memories of your time here at ISH and The Hague.

Good luck to all!
