IFSS proud member of AIMS

The Alliance of Independent recognized Members of Sport (AIMS) was founded in 2009 by the non- IOC recognized members of GAISF and is the fourth group in GAISF alongside ARISF, ASOIF and AIOWF.
The aims of AIMS are to strengthen each individual sport, combine expertise, share knowledge and maintain close cooperation with the International Olympic Committee (IOC), so that the individual sport will achieve official recognition from the IOC.
The exchange of culture, education and sport, and sport for all is an important platform; along with it is protecting each other from splinter groups, cooperation with WADA and using sport as a powerful tool to contribute to society. AIMS is also in close cooperation with Peace and Sport, Generations for Peace and UN Women.
Currently, AIMS has 21 sporting international federations as full members. The AIMS President is the General Secretary of IFMA, Stephan Fox. AIMS is looking forward to a continued close cooperation with the IOC to promote physical and sporting activities to develop society and to provide support to athletes and sporting bodies.
IFSS is a full member of AIMS and as a director of AIMS council I am very proud to represent our sport in this great organization.

Sincerely
Helen Lundberg
IFSS President
