Our Instagram account: team_jij_lfsf_2017

We are a team of 10 students from the Lycée Français de San Francisco, coached by our 2 PE teachers. We are participating in the Jeux Internationaux de la Jeunesse (International Youth Games), which are taking place in Marseille from June 4th to June 10th. The JIJs are an international sports competition with 51 teams coming from everywhere in the world who are participating in various athletic and cultural activities, which are organized by the UNSS, the french union for sports in school. We would love for you to accompany us in this great athletic adventure, where living together and intercultural exchanges are the main values. At the JIJs, there will be: lifeguarding, cross-country running, orienteering, local games from the southern region of France, “pétanque”, nature activities and a choreographed video, which needs to be filmed before we leave to Marseille.
