Students have plenty of opportunity to achieve their athletic potential through our comprehensive program, excellent facilities and, above all, our dedicated coaching staff. Our philosophy is based on "team spirit" and a sense of "fair play" and we are well-known on the international school circuit in Switzerland and in Europe for our sportsmanship. Our athletes travel around Europe to compete and ZIS families host hundreds of visiting student athletes from other schools each year. This way our students and their families have the opportunity to participate in a fun and rewarding program, which also promotes their physical, emotional and social well-being.

We are members in one national and two international organizations:

We participate in competitions run by each of these and host a minimum of two ISST, two SCIS and three SGIS tournaments per school year.
