PE Uniforms

 

BFIS does not have a PE uniform anymore but families can purchase BFIS BFIS sports and Spirit wear through our provider’s online store PlayerLayer. PlayerLayer is a high quality experienced sports brand that supplies multiple universities, International schools and clubs in Europe.  BFIS selected PlayerLayer out of the UK for various reasons, but mainly because they strongly believe in making sports gear more environmentally friendly while having a great quality and design. They were responsible for designing the kits for the Forest Green Rovers, who have been recognized by the UN, FIFA and UEFA as the world’s greenest football club.The current material for all of the team shirts is 50% bamboo, they are working hard on new fabrics to get that to 100%, and the volleyball leggings are made from recycled plastic bottles.


HOW DO I ORDER?
