ISAS data base

As of January 1st 2015, IBSA is using the ISAS (IBSA Sports Administration System -

Caption: screenshot of the sign-in page of the ISAS.
The IBSA Sport Administration System is designed to support and facilitate the information management of athletes within IBSA.

IBSA member organisations must register their athletes in the system to ensure they are eligible to compete in IBSA competitions.
We highly appreciate your assistance in keeping the data as up to date and accurate as possible. We welcome feedback on your experiences with using the system and with the processes implemented within it.

The application provides the following tools:

  • Athletes/guides registration in all IBSA sports
  • Classification Management
  • License Management according to the IBSA Licensing Programme
  • IBSA Athlete & License Cards
  • IBSA Sports Calendar

The following steps are to be followed in the athlete license registration process for all IBSA athletes:

1.      The IBSA member organisation requests with the form for a user name and password from the IBSA Sports Administration System (ISAS) -

2.      The IBSA member accesses the ISAS online (with a user name / password and further instructions given by IBSA Assist).

3.      The IBSA member completes the mandatory Athletes License Registration data fields and uploads online the following for each athlete:

a.      A PDF of the signed IBSA Eligibility Code Form (attached and also this can be downloaded from the IBSA website)
b.      A recent passport size photo [jpg and maximum size 250 KB]
c.      A PDF of the athlete’s passport or identity card [maximum size 1Mb]

4.      Upon all data and eligibility conditions being fulfilled through the registration data capture, the IBSA member can (at the same time) apply for single or multiple athlete licenses for the given season and make a payment via a bank transfer.

It is important to note that only IBSA licensed athletes will be eligible to participate in IBSA events and have their results submitted for consideration on the world and regional ranking lists as well as for world and regional record applications.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the purpose of IBSA?

    Our status allows us to provide our movement with a unique identity in order to further develop and promote sports for the blind and visually impaired. We are also committed to providing assistance to our national member organisations in all five continents, especially those organisations in developing countries which have to date been unable to spread the word about blind sports sufficiently within their countries and do not have an established school sports programme for the blind, local and national competition programme, etc.

  • How does IBSA achieve its goals?

    To reach our objectives, we encourage all blind and visually impaired people to get involved in different sports and physical activities. You too can become a blind athlete and take part in competitions ranging from school sports to elite level championships for the blind and the Paralympic Games.
