At SJK, physical fitness and a healthy lifestyle are lifelong values that go hand-in-hand. We are focused on developing and maintaining the balance that will enhance personal health and well being for years to come.

All students in the Middle and Upper years are required to get involved in at least one athletic activity each school year. Each year, over 89 per cent of our students participate in the competitive Varsity Program.

With both varsity teams and athletic clubs there is something for just about everyone. As a member of both CISAA (the Conference of Independent Schools Athletic Association) and OFSAA (the Ontario Federation of Schools Athletic Association), SJK provides outstanding competitive opportunities for all student athletes. There are also numerous teams and clubs offered at the Lower School level.

SJK students enjoy access to four immaculately groomed outdoor playing fields and a 15,000 square foot Athletics and Health Centre, featuring a double gymnasium, a combatives room, a full fitness centre, and four change rooms with shower facilities.

Through their co-curricular athletic involvement SJK students are constantly encouraged to stretch their personal limits. By experiencing the challenges that go along with participating as a member of a team, students learn to savour earned victories and to grow from defeats. High expectations motivate students to realize their full potential.
