Calgary Board of Education


David Thompson School provides athletic opportunities that promote positive attitudes, sportsmanship, commitment, teamwork and a healthy, active lifestyle.

Students are encouraged to participate in athletics at David Thompson School. Athletes must be aware of the commitment and check the “Athletics” bulletin board for practice and league information. There is a “fee” for all sports to cover the cost of officiating. Students will be responsible for their uniform; transportation and ensuring that the required forms are returned by deadlines. Uniforms are for soccer, volleyball and basketball teams; all other teams will wear the DTS gym strip. There may be additional fees if the team enters a tournament or wishes to order warm up clothing. If athletes do not follow the Athlete Code Of Conduct, they will be removed from the team.
