Junior School Sports 2020-21

Sports Program Principles

  • Each child is valued for their contributions.
  • Each child will have a meaningful amount of playing time.
  • Students will receive quality coaching to promote age-appropriate skill development.
  • Each child will be required to set goals that take hard work.
  • The athletic environment will provide each child access to positive social interactions.
  • Capable young athletes will be enriched by their experiences.
  • Children with different learning styles, emotional needs and physical challenges will be supported.
  • Where selection is required, alternative opportunities will be created so that all children can enjoy a competitive experience.
  • Opportunities will be provided to all genders.

This year, unlike any other year in recent memory, presents challenges but also new opportunities in the way that we present our programs. Given the current provincial health restrictions and safety protocols, competitive after-school sports with other schools will not be possible in Term 1 or 2. We will, however, be able to offer practices in your child’s cohort.
