5-Star Athlete Program: Junior & Senior High
Many of us know the added struggles of being a student-athlete: missed instructional time from teachers, loss of class time to complete assignments, longer days attending practice after school, and getting home past bedtime only to get up early to go to school.
Many of our students, despite the additional time taken for sports, keep up with their studies and maintain a high academic standing. We recognize the student-athletes of Swan Hills School who are our representatives and ambassadors in sport.
For every sport that a student participates in, they are awarded an “athletic star” with the maximum of being a “5 Star Athlete.” What does it mean to be a 5 Star Athlete? It means these students have spent the entire year participating on school teams with only a 1-week break between sports. They have continually sacrificed their personal time to make the Swan Hills School Athletics programs successful.
The five main sports of Interscholastic competition are: volleyball, played from September 1st to November 7th; basketball, November 14th to February 28th; curling, March 1st to March 24th; badminton, April 1st to April 26th, and track and field, which is coming up beginning May 7th through May 24th.
