With the return of inter-school competition, many of the long-standing athletic topics and questions will again emerge. Ask About Athletics is an opportunity to understand the athletic landscape that impacts extracurricular sport at YHS.

Question: Does York House play in leagues with Vancouver public schools or only independent schools?
All independent schools in Vancouver are members of the Lower Mainland Independent School Athletic Association (LMISSAA). We play our league games against these schools only and compete for league championships here. All Vancouver public schools are members of the Vancouver Secondary Schools Athletic Association (VSSAA) and compete within that association. All regions have their own athletic associations for league play. However, many invitational tournaments take place and coaches often arrange exhibition games that bring both public and independent schools from all over BC together for competition.

At the end of a season, the top teams from our LMISSAA league will advance to Zone Championship events. We are members of the Vancouver Sea to Sky Zone which includes all LMISSAA, VSSAA, and North Shore (NSSSAA) teams. The top teams at these Zone Championship tournaments then qualify for BC Championships which include the top teams from all nine zones in BC.
