The BH Athletics Philosophy

We believe students should be physically active on a regular basis in order to develop personal health and fitness. Student participation in active, hands-on and meaningful experiences is an essential part of the learning process. The BH Athletics program enhances mental energy and academic performance while promoting a philosophy of active healthy lifestyles.

The BH Athletics program provides all students with opportunities to acquire, maintain and refine skills and knowledge and to apply these concepts to a variety of activities on a regular basis. The emphasis from Kindergarten to Grade 4 is on basic movement skills. In Grade 5, students are introduced to sport specific skills and rules. In Middle School, students continue to develop these skills and lay the foundation for more complex athletic involvement in Senior School. The BH Athletic program structure is enriched through a series of clubs, and developmental squads.

Sports offered at BH

A variety of sports teams are offered to Middle and Senior students. Major sports, include volleyball, basketball, soccer and ice hockey. Minor sports typically have a shorter season. There is a Developmental League for Grades 6 and 7 and a Junior League for Grades 7 and 8. These teams compete in the Manitoba Catholic School Athletic Association, (MCSAA). There is a Junior Varsity League for Grade 9 & Grade 10 and a Varsity League for Grade 11 & Grade 12. These teams compete in the Zone 12 Crosstown Conference as part of the Manitoba High School Athletic Association (MHSAA). Other sports teams offered include badminton, ultimate, track & field and curling. Track and Field is open to both Middle and Senior students.

Expectations of a BH Athlete

All athletes are expected to make a commitment to attend all practices and games on time. Making a commitment to a team is an integral part of a team’s success. Athletes are also expected to maintain good grades in all subject areas and complete schoolwork in a timely manner in order to participate. We are proud of our school teams and expect them to be ambassadors for Balmoral Hall School in the community. Please refer to our student-athlete policy.
 
Coming to Balmoral Hall has been so significant to my life not only because I am able to play the sport I love at a higher level, but because the school changed my perspective on life. It taught me how to make my dreams a reality, and for that I am thankful.
