EXTRA -CURRICULAR SPORTS - HELP NEEDED!
Last school year saw incredible interest by students in ALL grades for our extra-curricular sports program through the VSB leagues. We are off to a strong start this year with a team of 51 Cross Country runners!! 
Two Cross Country meets remain: 
- Mini-meet at Vanier Park on Thursday, October 15th   (3:30-5:00 pm)
- District Finals at Trout Lake Park on Thursday, October 22nd     (1:00-3:00 pm)
 
PARENT COACHES NEEDED
Please contact Mr. Atkinson ASAP, if interested or if you have questions!!!

 
Volleyball, Basketball, Badminton, Track & Field... all of these sports are still to come this year. The ONLY WAY we can run a full slate of teams (Junior & Seniors for both boys and girls) is to have more staff or PARENTS volunteer to coach a team. Here is some key information to help you decide whether to Coach.
 
Game Days for Volleyball & Basketball (3:30-5:00 pm):

  •  Junior Boys (Grades 4-6) - Mondays
  •  Junior Girls (Grades 4-6) - Tuesdays
  •  Senior Boys (Grades 6-7) - Wednesdays
  •  Senior Girls (Grades 6-7) - Thursdays 

 
Practice Sessions at Queen Mary:
Coaches meet with Mr. Atkinson and we determine a schedule that fits with your availability and the open times for the gym. Practices can happen before school, at lunch or after school. Some practices for two teams can be held jointly!
 Sport Seasons:

  • Cross Country:  September/October              (almost over - M/W morning practices)
  • Volleyball:  November 2 to December 8        (practices begin in October)
  • Basketball:  January 18 to March 3                (practices begin in December)
  • Badminton:  February/March/April               (we've not had a team for years - this year?!)
  • Track & Field:  Mid April to mid June             (practices start early April) 

Other Ways to Help:

  • Be a team manager - organize rides and be in charge of team jerseys for game days
  • Assist in organizing end of season celebrations
