Due to sporting demands, cultural sharing and the travel involved, this event is best suited to upper-elementary students, between grades 4 and 6.

Teams will consist of 6 students, and we suggest that they be accompanied by 2 coaches.

Students aged 9 to 12 will have the opportunity to stay with local families, who will play a vital role in showcasing Bulgarian culture and customs.

The essence of this event lies in building a peaceful and improved world through the practice of sports and the forging of new friendships. Students, teachers, and school leaders alike will have the chance to deepen their understanding of different countries and cultures by working collaboratively, exchanging ideas, and sharing their unique practices.

The focus is not on competition or winning prizes, but on unity and active participation in sports, embracing the Olympic spirit of enjoyment, friendship, solidarity, and fair play. We have already received considerable interest and extend our warm welcome to schools worldwide, hoping for a diverse representation of countries, continents, and cultures. To secure your spot, we encourage you to express your interest as early as possible.


‘ The aim of Global Association of Montessori Education and Sport is to connect people through sport and education. It is about building a peaceful and better world by practicing sports and making new friendships. Pupils, teachers and school leaders alike, will learn more about different countries, and their cultures, by working together and sharing ideas and practices.’
