Competitive Athletics

Building a sense of teamwork and school spirit is an important learning opportunity that can be enhanced through appropriate competition. Therefore, the school is committed to building competitive athletic programs where students are provided with increasing levels of competition as they move through the Junior School to the Senior School in a way that supports their skills development, commitment and good sportsmanship. Emphasis is placed on developing fundamental movement skills, cooperation, and fair play. Therefore, many of our competitive athletic teams welcome players of all abilities from beginners to those who have played before. Through coaching, guidance, and instruction we hope to encourage students to continue with the sport throughout their time at Pickering College in a fun, supportive and safe environment.

Pickering College offers an extensive range of athletic facilities across its 42 acre campus, including: baseball diamonds, two gymnasiums, an indoor ice arena, a surfaced running track, four playing fields and a fitness centre. We also partner with Newmarket for swimming pool facilities.

Expert Training and Competitive Opportunities

Our Pickering College coaches are National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) qualified and take advantage of the professional development that is offered every year. We believe strongly in our teachers coaching because of the relationships that are created and the school spirit that it brings. We hire expert coaches in a few of our co-curricular programs such as figure skating, equestrian, and hockey.

Focused Excellence

Our athletics program is designed to balance academic studies with healthy physical activity. The results of participation in our programs are apparent in students’ increased confidence, improved health and energy levels. We encourage our athletes to compete through the joy of effort. Throughout the year, all competitive athletes are honoured at special events and given recognition with various awards at the end of each season.
