Varsity Athletics

Leadership is a Natural Outcome

All students in Grades 7 - 12 are required to get involved in at least one athletic activity each school year. Each year, over 90% of our students participate in the competitive Varsity Program. 

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. 

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.

Centre of Excellence: Field Hockey

A passion for field hockey lives here.

More than mere tradition, the sport of field hockey is a part of the very fabric of athletics at SJK. The campus features four high-quality natural field surfaces and a double gymnasium for winter indoor training. Students also have access to turf surfaces at the University of Waterloo and Guelph and participate in indoor winter training offered through regional clubs for all levels of athletes.

All field hockey programs run during the fall season. SJK offers field hockey programs to rookie and seasoned athletes, at every level, delivered by a dedicated, passionate and knowledgeable coaching staff.
