About CommISTO

CommISTO is made up of current and former student trampolinists who voluntarily organise and run ISTO every year. Two Co-Head organisers are selected by the previous years Co-Head organisers, usually out of any previous CommISTO members, to run ISTO for the following year. These two individuals then open applications for the remaining committee members.

If you are interested in become a CommISTO member in the future, applications open during the summer. The application questions are posted on our social media platforms each year. For further information, send us an email info@isto.ie.
