Well, like the old saying goes, “When it rains, it pours, and when it snows, the whole city shuts down!” The great snowstorm of 2019 wreaked havoc on traffic in the Lower Mainland, and impacted all of our JS Athletics teams. Practices, games, and ISEA events were all cancelled or rescheduled, as Athletics Coordinators scrambled to restore order to the schedule.
GRADE 5 BASKETBALL
The Grade 5 Basketball ISEA Playday has been rescheduled for Tuesday, February 26. The later date means a few more practices, and a chance to continue building skills and knowledge. Best of luck to the team.
GRADE 6 BASKETBALL
Unfortunately, the Grade 6 Basketball team has a game cancelled and their ISEA Playday rescheduled. The team will now participate in their ISEA Playday on Wednesday, February 20.

The Grade 7 Basketball teams have less disruptions to their schedules, but the A team did have to cancel their final regular season game. Both teams have found some additional practice time and a very much looking forward to their ISEA Tournaments, both of which are being played on February 22nd.
GRADES 3- 7 SWIMMING
The Swim team has continued to roll. Following an excellent showing at the St. George’s Elementary Swim Meet in late January, they had a team victory at the WPGA Elementary Swim Meet on February 7th. Way to go Tigers! The team will wrap up its season at the ISEA Swimming Championships on February 19. The Tigers are looking strong and should put up a great fight as they try to bring home the Girls Team Champions trophy. Good luck Tigers!
