ISL runs a wide range of team and individual sports for boys and girls in both the Primary School and the Secondary School, from Years 4 to 13 at different levels (recreational & competitive), with a focus on the following eleven key sports: Badminton, Basketball, Football, Gymnastics, Netball, Skiing, Swimming, Tennis, Track and Field, Unihockey, and Volleyball. Other sports currently offered include: Cross-country running, Golf, Snowboarding and Fitness. ISL values competitive sport and healthy competition, we aim to employ teachers and coaches who are qualified and committed to developing sport at ISL. As well as developing the individual student’s sporting prowess, we aim to imbue the values of good sportsmanship, fair play and to develop leadership potential.
We also enable and encourage students to compete in tournaments and matches without compromising their academic standards in any of their subjects. Locally ISL particpates in the Lac Leman Sports League (LLSL) which provides regular Winter and Spring term matches against similar International schools in the Lake region. ISL competes in both the “Swiss Group of International Schools” (SGIS) and the “Association de Directeur de la Suisse Romands” (ADISR) organisations throughout the year. The SGIS provides ISL’s students with competitive opportunities against International Schools from all over Switzerland, while ADISR incorporates both International Schools and some local schools in the lake area. ISL is also a member of the European Sports Conference (ESC) founded in 2013 which offers senior students the opportunity to compete against schools across Europe in Germany, Italy, France, Spain and Portugal.
