Athletics
The Ermitage Mustangs

At Ermitage, we believe athletics are an important piece of the puzzle, contributing to our students’ overall success and well-being. Ermitage offers a wide variety of activities and facilities so there's something for everyone.

Sports are important at Ermitage. We believe that regular physical activity is essential to achieving balance. Athletics are an added benefit and a major ally when it comes to academic success.That's why we have partnered with the city and local clubs to give our students access to as many opportunities and facilities as possible. Not everyone has the same interests or skills, but we can all benefit from participating in some kind of individual or team sport.

Outside of mandatory physical education classes, students can choose to play sports for leisure or at a competitive level. Everything is possible. You're sure to find something you like, so get ready to join in!

 

Club Sports

Bridging the gap between intramural sports and professional-level competition, Ermitage Mustangs club sports allow our students to hone their athletic skills and participate in exciting matches and tournaments. Clubs are open to IB MYP, DP, Collège and Lycée students who have the necessary level to compete. Our students are matched up against teams and athletes from other areas around France. Go Mustangs!

Ermitage Sports Academy
 
Ermitage Sports Academy provides students a platform to perform at a high level in sports while also maintaining a strong focus on academic success.

We truly believe that high performance in sports can translate into strong leadership skills, a thirst for knowledge and success, and a keen drive to self-improvement.

As of Fall 2021, we will be offering students in the IB Program from MYP4 to DP2 the possibility of training and competing at high levels in three different sports: Football, Golf, and Horse Riding (Jumping/Dressage).
