At ISZL, we believe that physical activity is necessary for the maintenance of the health and fitness of the students. The athletics programme highlights development of a students’ physical skills, their cooperative interaction with others, and the discovery and understanding of themselves and their limits. Physical Education is a compulsory part of the curriculum for students in the Primary Years Programme and Middle Years Programme.
In the lower years, organised events such as Games Day and Sports Day are planned for students in addition to numerous indoor and outdoor planned sports and activities. Swimming lessons are scheduled on a regular basis at pools near the Zug Campus.
In the Middle School, extracurricular sports include soccer, tennis, basketball, swimming, skiing, track and field, volleyball, softball and golf. Students also are encouraged to participate in recreational clubs that focus on climbing, running, uni-hockey and yoga.
At the High School, competitive sports include soccer, volleyball, rugby, basketball, swimming, skiing, track and field, tennis, softball and golf. Numerous clubs are also organised seasonally and include sailing, kayaking, running, fitness, dance and yoga.
The ISZL Sports Booster Club is a non-profit, parent-led, volunteer organisation that supports our competitive sports teams. The Booster Club promotes sporting events, runs concession stands and raises funds for our athletes and teams.
Our Booster Club heightens ISZL's school spirit, establishes sports traditions and increases the involvement of students and parents at our games and events. Through these efforts, the Booster Club helps our athletes excel and enjoy their athletics experience.
