* indicates the sports that The Woodlands has competed in during the past 3 school years. Teams will only run if there are available coaches or interest from our students.

 

Most sports offer play at both Junior (grade 9 and 10) and Senior (grade 11 and 12) levels of play, however, some sports are ‘varsity’ only (grades 9-12). In addition, some sports also offer play at the Bantam or Midget level (grade 9).

 

Students at The Woodlands can usually only play one sport during each of the three sports seasons (Fall, Winter, and Spring). Tryouts/signups for sports take place in early September for Fall sports, early November for Winter sports, and mid-March/early April for Spring sports.

 

Teams typically practice 2-5 times per week and games usually take place 1-2 times per week during the competitive season. Practices take place either before school or after school.

 

The teachers at The Woodlands, as well as qualified coaches from our community, coach our teams on a voluntary basis.

 

Students are asked to pay a nominal user fee ($20 per athlete per sport) to offset the cost of transportation, officiating, awards, special equipment, and new uniform orders. In addition, a team fee may be collected to pay for personalized uniforms, tournament entry fees, and additional costs associated with some sports (e.g. mouth guards for football and flag football).

 

All student-athletes are expected to follow the Code of Conduct as outlined on page 2 of the permission form.

 

To follow your favorite team you can access current standings and schedules on the ROPSSAA Scores website (www.ropssaascores.com).

 

For more information on our programs or volunteer opportunities please contact Edward Szeto in the Physical Education department.

High school athletics are not only fun, but help students develop a healthy sense of competition that helps individuals develop physically, emotionally, mentally and socially.
