School sports are an important way for kids to keep fit, have fun and to try something new. They also encourage school spirit and give plenty of opportunity for children to make new friendships outside the classroom. Here at QE we are very lucky to have many capable and enthusiastic staff and parent volunteers.
Provided there are enough teacher sponsors for any given sport – the school sports program starts with x-country in September, switches to volleyball at the end of October, basketball from just before Christmas or early January until the end of February, Badminton in March and April and then finally Track & Field in April and May.
Running Club is a PAC sponsored running program on Friday mornings. The Running Club often participates in the Longest Run at UBC in June. Contact email@example.com for more information.
Students who wish to participate are expected to attend all practices and games. Team Sports are open to Grade 6 and 7 students. Track & Field is open to Grade 3 and up, while X – Country and Running Club are open to all ages.
Coaches are a mix of teachers and parent volunteers. The continued availability and success of these programs is dependent on parent volunteers to help supervise and, potentially, coach.
Once teacher sponsors have stepped forward and enough children have signed up for a team, the teacher sponsor will reach out to parents asking for volunteers. In addition to that process, any parents who are interested with helping out with any of the sports may contact the main office at the school (604-713-5408).
