Competitive Sports

SMUS competes at the varsity level in 13 sports. At the Senior level (Grades 11-12) and Junior Level (Grades 9-10), all athletes compete through to the Vancouver Island championships, with some sports hosting provincial tournaments.

In most sports, SMUS competes at the AA level (based on school size). At the Senior School level, all teams are competitive and have a tryout component. Students who also play on a non-SMUS team outside of school are expected to prioritize their school team. 

Senior School sports require a high level of commitment. Players will often travel for competitions, occasionally miss class time for games, and can expect to train 4-6 times per week. Students should ensure that they are able to meet the requirements outlined by their coach.

SMUS is a AA powerhouse in soccer on Vancouver Island, and because the climate allows year-round play, one of the best places to develop as a player in Canada.

SMUS has Senior and Junior teams for boys and girls. There is also a Senior Boys Developmental team to build skill levels and ensure an all-inclusive environment.
