Town Centre Private Schools’ High School division is an active member of the Small Schools Athletic Federation (SSAF).
This sports league offers our students the opportunity to tryout and compete against other schools in inter school competitions. We compete at the under 20 level (grades 9 to 12) with boys, girls and co-educational sports teams. The leagues provide our students with a unique opportunity to show their school spirit and sportsmanship in friendly competitions.
TCPS offers a drop in sports program for students during the lunch hour. The drop in sports program is organized and taught by our own coaching staff and gives students the opportunity to increase their physical activity level through a variety of sports in a non-competitive environment.
Today in North America the average teenager is prone to eat unhealthy food or eat too much and is not getting enough exercise. Today’s teenagers and our future leaders are not choosing a healthy active lifestyle. This is the cold hard truth. It does not even take into consideration the time constraints of a life, balancing family, school and friends. Our young adults need to be educated in how to get healthy and fit and also be given the opportunity to apply this knowledge.
At Town Centre Private Schools we provide well organized health and physical education courses, offer over 20 competitive varsity athletic teams as well as a drop in lunch hour intramural program. All of the programs are designed to meet the educational and athletic needs of our student body.
What makes our school unique is the free membership in the Fitness Club which operates twice a week in the Main Gymnasium. Teachers are available to guide students through core training exercises, pilates, circuit training and specific cardio-respiratory training sessions such as the Beep Test. All our high school students are encouraged to come out and make a start on the road to a healthy active lifestyle.
Town Centre Private Schools’ High School division offers a full house league program which incorporates a variety of activities and competitions including athletics, arts, community service and other spirit building events.
