Dear Parents, Staff, Community and Supporters of the Bears Athletic Program:

On April 13 – April 16, 2017, BIFS will be hosting the Varsity Boys Soccer Tournament in our new Athletic league, the Association of International Schools Asia (AISA). There will be teams from Seoul, Yokohama, Osaka and Jeju participating in this tournament.

One of AISA’s strengths is that it creates opportunities for students to interact in a multicultural setting, while participating in a range of events, from sports tournaments to academic competitions to leadership conferences. One vital aspect of this intercultural interaction is the homestay experience. The homestay experience can be rewarding for both the host family and the guest students, and so the homestay experience is considered to be an integral part of AISA.

In order to run a successful tournament, we need your support in either opening up your home to host students, or in helping us find a home for the travelling teams. Please find the details of the host family responsibilities, as well as the homestay rules and responsibilities.

If you have any further questions, please contact the Athletic Director, Martina Plicka at mplicka@isbusan.org.

We thank you for your support of BIFS Athletics!
