The Dream

Sportstar College Ikast-Brande is an offer for anyone wanting to pursue their dream within a wide variety of sports. Sportstar College is designed for athletes who strive to develop themselves in an elite environment, placed in a city with a long tradition of supporting top sports. One of the unique aspects of College is the configuration of several sports, all thriving under one roof

Sportstar College is led by Karsten Werge: an experienced and respected leader, describing the position he is in as ‘his dream job’. Karsten, an experienced educator, has years of experience working with young people from a wide range of positions including the job as education and integration manager in FC Midtjylland. “It is an exciting challenge to unite seven very different sports. Our students interact and inspire each other from their individual sports, which I find to be quite unique” says Karsten Werge.


Sportstar College Ikast-Brande was built and inaugurated in July 2008. College consists of four student accommodation-wings with a total of 120 rooms as well as ege-huset: the common house with kitchens, combined dining- and living space, laundry facilities as well as the administration.

In Ikast you will find the newly renovated halls in Sportscenter Ikast, alongside of a modern fitness center that can be used by all College students. Sportstar College collaborates with ISI - Idrætsskolerne Ikast, Ikast Svømmecenter as well as one of the city’s modern fitness centers.

Daily rhythm

The daily rhythm of students at Sportstar College is constantly in motion depending on the school you choose as well as the sport you practice. The scheme gives an overview of what a week at Sportstar College could look like, and it gives an idea of how we have chosen to organize everyday life for our students.

Time periods of training differ from sport to sport in the afternoon and the evenings. If you wish to hear more detailed information regarding your sport, you can find additional information under the section assigned to the sport. You are also more than welcome to contact the line manager coach for any questions you might have.

In the evenings there are a wide range of activities students can participate in, including swimming, visiting the cinema or a trip to see the local heroes in games of handball, soccer, or badminton. College also hosts ‘College-Nights’ which consists of various events taking place at College. Activities can range from entertainment to group trips. Some events are voluntary, and others are compulsory to participate in.
