Senior Tigers Update: September 12, 2019

The busy fall athletics season is underway with our students playing field hockey, volleyball, swimming, and running cross-country. This is the busiest season with approximately 50% of our senior school students competing on a YHS team. Team selection is complete for our volleyball teams and for Varsity Field Hockey. However, it is not too late to come out and join cross-country, the swim team, or Junior/Senior field hockey.

All Tigers games, meets, and competitions are on our YHS Athletics Calendar on myYHS.

Volleyball: Grade 8 Team, Junior (Grade 9-10) Team, Senior (Grade 10-12) Team
Our Senior Volleyball Team placed second in BC last year and this season will again be one of the top 3-4 AA volleyball teams in BC and one of the most talented YHS teams we have ever had. Be sure to come out and watch some outstanding volleyball and cheer on our Tigers teams!

Field Hockey: Junior (Grade 8-10) Team, Senior (Grade 9-12) Team, Varsity (Grade 8-12) Team
Our Varsity Team is our most competitive team that takes on the best hockey teams from around BC. Last season our Tigers placed 7th in BC and this season is looking for a top 4-5 finish. Come support our hockey teams!

Swim Team (Grade 8-12): All experienced swimmers welcome
Our Swim Team trains at St. George’s pool and will compete in a few local meets. Our Swim Team routinely places among the top 2-3 AA girls teams in BC and this season will again be vying for a provincial title. Please come cheer on our swimmers!

Cross-Country Running: All competitive and recreational runners welcome.
Our runners compete in local meets and everyone is welcome to come train and compete. We also have some highly competitive runners who will compete to qualify and place at the BC Championships. Our league meets are at Jericho Park and fun to watch. Come cheer on our runners!

Reminders for student-athletes and parents regarding communication:

  • Coaches make many decisions during a season. These are made with care and with what is best for the entire team. Please respect these decisions.
  • Coaches communicate regularly to players about the decisions made. However, this communication rarely reaches home. If you have a concern, ask your daughter. If she is not clear and is also concerned about something, please encourage her to speak directly to her coaches.  
  • If this first step in communication has not worked, then please feel comfortable speaking to the coaches (not immediately before or after a game). Please connect with the coach and arrange an appropriate time. 
  • We also advise a 24hr rule. If you are upset about something, please try and wait 24hrs before communicating.
