International Sports Management Academy

Sport is a proven and efficient vehicle for building and connecting nations around the world. Sport plays an invaluable role in unifying people with a common passion. Nationalism and sports are often intertwined and sport is also a powerful instrument for diplomacy and international business development. Professional management of sports is, therefore, an effective tool for society building and national progress.

International Sports Management Academy (ISMA), with its head office in Noordwijk, the Netherlands, offers an international platform for management of sports, executive programs, masterclasses and conferences with the aim to share knowledge and experience in management, operational structures and grassroots sports development.
  • Dutch architecture

    Although a small country with 17 million inhabitants only, the Netherlands is well performing sporting nation.
    Based on the total number of Olympic medals won since the start of the modern Olympic games in 1896 till today, the Netherlands score a top position in terms of number of Olympic medals per capita. The key of this success is in the apporoach of grassroots sports development.

    We offer foreign governmental institutions and sports organisations to share our experience and to collaborate and network with experts in grassroots sports architecture.
