Sports at Florimont

Sport plays a key role at Florimont. Added to the important life lessons and values sport brings, it keeps students healthy and helps them achieve their best academic results.

Our approach is to motivate students to develop a sporting culture and regularly practice sports or physical activity. We offer a full range of activities and programmes so students can try many different sports throughout their school life – from athletics, gymnastics and team sports to climbing, orienteering, white-water sports, and combat sports such as fencing.

Our sports partners

Florimont has formed partnerships with many of Geneva’s iconic sporting institutions, such as the Pôle Grenat (Genève Servette Hockey Club, Servette Football Club and Servette Rugby) and the Lions de Genève, and high-level events such as the annual Escalade race, the Gonet Geneva Open and the Bol d’Or Mirabaud regatta.

Facilities and competitions

Florimont’s outstanding sports facilities include 3 multi-sports halls, a climbing wall and a fencing hall where students can train on-site every day.

Fencing is a sport with a long history in education. Our fencing club is affiliated with Swiss Fencing (national federation) and caters for all levels.

Our students participate in numerous competitive events throughout the year organised by school associations (ADISR) and at regional, national and international levels.
