  • High School Volleyball
  • Middle School Soccer
  • Swimming (Grades 4-12)
  • Middle School Volleyball

  • Middle School Basketball
  • High School Soccer

Reasons why I personally love WAISAL

  • You get the chance to meet new people over the course of each tournament
  • Not only do you get to play if you make the team but the atmosphere of when WAISAL is being held at your school is overwhelming
  •      Pep rallys
  •      Team Cheers
  •      Finals (if we make them)
  • ALL of it is simply amazing
  • If you do make the WAISAL team or teams it gives you the opportunity to travel to another country and get a sense of what other International Schools in Africa are like
  • Last but not least families get to host children from all across the world and some of my long lasting friendships are with some people I met at WAISAL.


Personally, I look forward to every single WAISAL tournament whether I get to play or not. It’s one of the funnest opportunities offered at ISD.
