Sports at Florimont

Sport holds an important place at Florimont and teaches students to discover and develop their personal strengths through competition and teamwork, and plays a part in ensuring an all-round education.

We have high academic expectations of all our students, and our tutorial support programs empower them to achieve their true potential – both on the field and in the classroom.

We encourage our students to develop a sporting culture and motivate them to participate in sporting and physical activities on a daily basis in class or through extra-curricular activities.

Our sport programs allow students, throughout their formative years at the Institute, to familiarize themselves with a full range of sporting activities such as athletics, gymnastics, team sports, climbing, orienteering races, water sports, combat sports and fencing.

Prestigious partnerships

Florimont has forged numerous sports partnerships with emblematic Geneva institutions, such as the Pôle Grenat (Geneva Servette Hockey Club, Servette Football Club and Servette Rugby) or the Geneva Lions basketball club, as well as prestigious events, such as the Escalade race, the Gonet Geneva Open or the Bol d’Or Mirabaud.
