The Schools Olympic Program (SOP) has been held annually since 2007 and is an initiative of the Qatar Olympic Committee, the Supreme Education Council, Qatar School Sport Federation and Qatar Paralympics Committee. The focus is to engage the community in an active, healthy lifestyle and promote a sporting culture in Qatar, in line with the goals of Qatar’s National Vision 2030.

The deadline for schools to register is 26 September and this year’s Schools Olympic Program (SOP) will run from October to April next year. It will feature 10 sports disciplines along with various other activities.

With a view to increasing participation this year, over 300 independent and international schools in Qatar will take part and will work on keeping parents informed and encouraging the children to take part and win.
