Sharing experiences

See our photo galleries

With the goal to exchange and share on the theme of sport and its values Sport for Life will regularly organise conferences, seminars and round tables with sport champions or with well known and influential persons in the world of sport.


These will facilitate the sharing of experience and will allow youths to become closer to the feeling of passion of sport. Through these exchanges, vocations could develop. These conferences are open to all youths from sport clubs including their entourage, who are freely invited to participate.


For the launching of Sport for Life in November 2009, a round table on “Sport, A School For Life” was organised at the Event Center of La Praille with the participation of Amélie Mauresmo and Raphael Jacquelin, chaired by Jean-Philippe Rapp, with almost 300 people attendance.


Prior to the formation of Sport for Life, its managing team had already organised two conferences: one on “Stress Management” with Isabelle Inchauspé, doctorate in psychology and the other one on “Surpassing Oneself” with Frank Bruno and Philippe Bozon, chaired by Jean-Philippe Rapp.
