Toronto Catholic District School Board

Co-curricular

Athletics

We strive to provide students with learning opportunities that extend beyond the classroom. Students are actively engaged in both extracurricular and intramural activities. Extracurricular activities frequently involve interaction and/or competition with other schools. Intramural activities essentially involve interaction/competition within our own school. Extracurricular activities involve student commitment for extended periods of practice prior to the activity. Although no extensive practice is involved, intramural activities require studnet commitment and a positive attitude.

Both extracurricular and intramural activities focus on developing collaborative skills, team-work, discipline and commitment. Both activities are strictly optional and are provided to enhance student learning beyond the classroom.
 
Extracurricular Activities
 
Extracurricular activities are organized by staff members who volunteer their time to coach the various activities. For each activity, coaches identify expectations for the students prior to the beginning of the activity. In all extracurricular athletic activities, there is a series of tryouts for the team. Once a team has been selected, the coach(es) will provide the team members with both expectations and a schedule for practices and games. All coaches involved in extracurriculars collaborate with school administration to verify basic expectations for players. It is a clear school expectation that students who participate in extracurriculars must be able to follow the school code of behavior both in our school and when visiting other schools. As a member of a school team, every player is made aware of the responsibility she/he has as a representative of our school community.
