Our remarkable setting and modern facilities enable us to offer a range of both competitive and noncompetitive sporting opportunities. There is something for everyone to discover, love and learn to excel.
In addition to participation in physical education lessons, there are many opportunities for students to pursue their sporting passions. Students at Aiglon take part in a range of physical activities, from basketball and tennis to fitness and alpine running.
Manchester City Football School
Gareth Whalley is the full-time Manchester City football coach, trained and qualified to deliver their world-leading programme. This offers a deep and broad football curriculum focusing on children's individual and collective needs, regardless of their level or gender.
The programme — the only one of its kind in Europe — offers every Aiglonian the opportunity to get a world-class football education on campus, tailored to their specific needs and interests.It starts with what we call Move to Play, which is the very basics for those who have maybe never kicked a ball before, and it goes all the way up to Play to Perform, aimed at more experienced players who understand the nuances of the game.
Lindsey Vonn Ski Ambassador
Aiglon College and Lindsey Vonn, Olympic champion ski racer have launched a partnership to enhance the school's winter ski and ski racing programme.
This collaboration with Lindsey Vonn - the only one of its kind in the world - will offer every Aiglon skier the opportunity for a world-class skiing education in our local mountain resort of Villars-sur-Ollon and in the surrounding Swiss Alps.
Lindsey Vonn will provide consultancy expertise on the establishment of a new initiative, Aiglon’s high-performance athletes and sport innovation programme. In particular she will help to further develop Aiglon’s ski programme. She will support Aiglon in identifying, selecting and appointing an elite ski coach for the high performance team as well as helping to review and validate the high performance programme and training regimes.
Winter is only one of the seasons we experience here in the Swiss mountains, but there's no denying that it's a special one. Whether you have never seen snow or are a highly competitive ski racer, Aiglon's ski programme offers something for everyone.
At Aiglon we believe that PE and sport underpin our guiding principles. We aim to deliver a holistic programme that provides all pupils with opportunities to develop skills, concepts and attitudes that they can take with them into a an intercultural society. Mr. James DysonHead of Sport & PE
