The FS Basketball initiative has already existed for several years now - a long time during which we were able to win some trophies as well. For example we recently got one for taking the third place at "WHU Euromasters", the biggest sports event for European Business Schools. But it isn't all about winning in this program. We are here to have some fun after a long day at work or university. It doesn't matter whether you are an advanced player or a greenhorn. We welcome everybody who has passion for our game or wants to discover his passion for it.
The FS Championship Board organizes the participation of Frankfurt School students at various national and international sport tournaments between leading European business schools. Our aim is to keep up our successful participation at the Bolzano Snowdays, the Royals Cup Maastricht, the Championstrophy and the WHU Euromasters. Of course we are open to participate in other tournaments too.
Board members are responsible for communicating with Frankfurt School participants and staff as well as with the event's organizers. The most important task is to find a team that lives the FS Spirit and is willing to give 100% to win the Spirit Trophy at the WHU Euromasters, which is awarded for exceptional team spirit and general outperformance in cheering for our sport teams and partying.
We equip participants with FS gear, organize pre-events, create the spirit movies and ensure that every participant has an unforgettable experience at the tournaments.
As FS Cheerleaders, we do not only practice choreographies consisting of stunts, acrobatics and dances to perform at big sports events such as the Euromasters and the Champions Trophy. It is also our job to support and cheer on the other sports teams of FS during these events. The team does not only consist of girls, however. In order to perform our stunts, we also need strong boys to lift the girls.
If you enjoy dancing, doing acrobatics or stunting and would like to try out something new or simply improve certain skills (like tumbling, for example), you are more than welcome to join the tryout sessions that we host at the beginning of each semester!
At FS Chess, we improve our analytical skills by solving chess puzzles, working on tactics problems and analyzing middle game and endgame positions. This initiative takes place in a relaxing and friendly atmosphere in which some hard-fought blitz battles and tournaments take place every now and then. Players of all levels are welcome; do not hesitate to come by!
FS Handball provides a platform for students, willing to participate at regular handball training sessions, as well as competitive sport events.
Our team was founded in 2015 and consists of a broad variety of different experience levels. In 2015, we reached the semi-finals at the Championstrophy in Hamburg and began regular training sessions afterwards. Currently, the Hockey initiative unifies a lot of great athletes of our university to a well competitive team. Our enthusiasm and spirit is huge and we welcome any player, who has marginal experience in field or indoor hockey.
Judo is a modern, refined form of Jujitsu developed in the late 1800's by professor Jigoro Kano. The approach of Judo isn´t to overcome an oncoming force; it teaches that it is more efficient to move opponents into a bad position and to use a technique rather than just using strength. Techniques are permitted for usage in competitions including throws, joint locks, chokes, and pins. These techniques are equally applicable for self-defense purposes.
Interested students can join with or without any knowledge of Judo. Everyone is welcome to participate!
Rowing Bulls - The official Rowing initiative of Frankfurt School was founded in the spring of 2015 for beginners and experienced rowers alike. We train at "Frankfurt Ruder-Club 1884 e.V." which offers courses for beginners and normal training for the experienced rowers. We participate at the WHU Euromasters in Vallendar and the Champions Trophy in Hamburg with a Coxed Four. In 2015 we won the third place in both events and in 2016 we were first place at the Champions Trophy. We are being sponsored by Erdinger Alkoholfrei since October 2015.
You like running, but it's hard for you to motivate yourself? It's fun for you to train together with other students? FS Running would love to welcome you in our group. Once a week we meet at the FS campus to start from there a run around the Main. Our group consists of beginners as well as professional runners.
Naturally, the world's most popular sport may not be missing at Frankfurt School. Players of every level can join to play and also to get to know fellow students with similar interests. As a highlight of the semester, the best players form a team to represent Frankfurt School at tournaments against business schools from all over Europe. Our team has often been able to reach one of the top three places.
We are a sport initiative of FS and play volleyball together, mostly indoor volleyball. Everybody is invited to join no matter which level of experience. We normally play in a mixed team (men and woman) and often participate at sport events such as the WHU Euromasters.
