Junior Tigers Update: February 23, 2023

On Thursday, February 23, the Grade 7 basketball teams wrapped up their season at their ISEA Tournaments. The results of the tournaments will be posted next week. 

Term 3 is just around the corner, and we are happy to once again offer our students an opportunity to participate in both Track & Field and Ultimate. Please log on to myYHS for sign-up details (deadline Fri. March 10)

Track & Field is an outstanding activity for the development of fundamental athletic movements for all students in Grades 3 through 7. All students are expected to practise running, jumping, and throwing. Aside from discus, practices are not optional as attendance and active participation are keys to a successful experience for everyone.

Ultimate is a fun and fast-paced, non-contact sport built around movement and throwing a disc. This exhilarating game has a strong tradition in our Senior School as several alumnae have played on Team Canada over the years.

Ultimate teams are open to all students in Grades 5, 6, and 7. Although cuts will not be made, attendance and active participation are key to a successful experience for everyone on the team. In keeping with our athletics policy, failure to communicate, show up consistently or fully participate during practice will impact participation and development. Students in Grades 6 and 7 play in a combined Grade 6/7 division.

We are very pleased to let you know that three different groups will be organizing and operating their sessions out of the YHS facilities. As these programs will take place on our campus, YHS students will have an advanced opportunity to enroll. These programs will take place during Term 3, and begin after Spring Break. If you are interested in securing a spot we encourage you to sign up as soon as possible. Please log in to myYHS for registration links for these opportunities.
