Commemorative Serie 2014

Following the 1960 Olympic Games in Rome, the COL (Luxembourg Olympic Circle) organised a round table aimed at promoting sport in schools. Ady Pierrard, a teacher in the city of Luxembourg, had the idea of organising extracurricular sports in our schools, following the example of USEP, similar organisation in France and LASEL existing in Luxembourg’s secondary schools.

LASEP (Sports League of Primary Schools) was officially founded on 23 January 1964. Its first president was Léon Bollendorf. In 1977, the Ministry of Sports made a fully furnished office available to LASEP in Luxembourg-Pulvermuhl. In 1993, LASEP received the keys to its new registered office in Luxembourg-Gare, and at the end of 2006, LASEP’s General Secretariat moved to the “Maison des Sports” in Strassen.

Over the years, LASEP’s members, the “LASEPistes” have worked to promote sport in schools, establish adequate training for their teachers and leaders and have the autonomy of the league laid down in the Schools Act of 6 February 2009 as an extracurricular and after-school institution.

Today, LASEP can be proud of its 50 years of “multisport” and recreational activities full of drive and enthusiasm, for students aged between 3 and 12 years attending primary school in Luxembourg.

Every year, on a national and regional level, LASEP sets out a sporting calendar with a large number of festivals and sporting events in which children from across the country have the opportunity to come together and play sport in a spirit of fair play and camaraderie.

LASEP also organises training sessions for over 5400 graduates working in around fi fty sports associations.
