CISM and International Sports CAF Sports As an integral part of the CAF Morale and Welfare Programs, the CAF Sports Program encompasses the spectrum of sports that are played by military members. The International program is a natural extension of the Regional and National program and includes all sport competition that goes beyond the National level. As such, the International component offers the opportunity for more skilled and higher caliber CAF athletes to train and compete at higher levels. International competition serves to motivate them to achieve greater excellence and compete at their highest potential. Participation in military competitions at the international level is achieved through the CAF’s membership in the Conseil international du sport militaire (CISM) and participation to civilian International competition is achieved through the CAF out Service competition process.
