On Saturday, June 9, the SV Rugby team was defeated 25 – 14 by Banff Community HS at the Calgary Rugby Union and finished with a silver medal at the ASAA Tier III Rugby Championship.
The athletics program at Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School is consistent with our mission. Character and leadership are the cornerstones of our program and we look for ways to enhance them at every opportunity.
Character is developed through successes and failures in team and individual sports including basketball, badminton, volleyball, field hockey, rugby, cross country running and track and field. It is through these athletic endeavours that students learn the values of sportsmanship and co-operation as well as determination and perseverance towards a common goal.
Leadership is the thread that ties our program together from one level of competition to the next. Opportunities are made available to participate as captains or managers of teams and even working as student coaches, referees, race marshals, scorekeepers, and officials. In addition, the Athletic Council allows students to organize and run specific athletic events including the divisional cross country running meet, track and field meets, and basketball or volleyball tournaments. Athletic Council is also offers an opportunity to support teams with photography, videography, statistics, research, journalism, promotion, and marketing. At year end, we recognize students who have made a significant contribution in the areas of leadership and character at our Athletic Awards Celebrations in the Middle and Senior Schools.
