SPORTS & OUTDOOR
ADVENTURE IN THE SWISS ALPS, AN OUTDOOR PARADISE
Sport is an integral part of life at Le Régent International School. Excellent facilities include a sports hall, housing two tennis and three squash courts. We also have access to unmatched facilities in the local area for golf, horse riding, skiing, mountain biking, trekking, wave surfing, road cycling, trail running, bicycle tours, paragliding, and water sports.
Expert tuition and excellent facilities ensure our students find their passion and achieve their potential, developing individual skills, whilst learning the value of team work and the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
In autumn and summer, sports include: football, basketball, volleyball, rugby, indoor hockey, netball, cricket fitness, swimming, squash, badminton and golf. In the winter term skiing obviously takes centre stage. All students have ski lessons with the qualified ski instructors of Ecole Suisse de Ski. In addition, snowboarding and freestyle lessons are available.
And Régents can take private lessons in activities such as tennis, karate, ballet, and horse riding. Finally, mention must be made of golf. We work closely with professionals at the Crans-sur-Sierre Golf Club, which boasts perhaps the finest course in Switzerland, to deliver a comprehensive programme as part of our Graduating Diploma sports specialism.
In an environment as remarkable as ours, the Outdoor Education programme is central, providing activities that inspire and empower young people, while building the resilience required for both the professional and personal sphere.
In the Crans-Montana area we have the perfect setting for a superb range of alpine activities, led by qualified and experienced professionals, creating moments of self-discovery and increased environmental awareness.
In the Juniors, as part of the Saturday programme, children participate in “age-related” progressive activities that can include walking, high ropes, orienteering, outdoor cooking, mountain-biking, climbing and camp craft. The duration of the day depends on the nature and location of the activity. Older children take part in outdoor education. They participate in an age-appropriate progressive programme that can include walking, high ropes, orienteering, outdoor cooking, mountain-biking, climbing and camp craft.
The environment is not seen in isolation or as an add on, but as an essential component at the heart of outdoor experiences, adventure, learning, creativity and wellbeing.
