It's been great to get back into the swing of things in PE following the break! We've been focusing on module work in Basketball, Road Hockey and the downstairs (cardio) fitness centre. As we get into mid-February, we'll maintain our work with a second basketball module, as well as table tennis, and a Fitness/road Hockey split. As always, students can expect to test themselves with our ongoing commitment to training and fitness through the Training Thursday program.
Wrestling season came to a close in January with the Division Championship meet at Genesis Centre on January 25. All athletes displayed awesome improvement and dedication with several personal bests and amazing matches! Big thanks to Mr. Joseph and Ms. Muirhead for all their work in making this season a great success!
Basketball season is up and running with all teams selected and preparing for the season! The regular season got underway on Jan 24 with the Senior Boys team playing host to several area schools. The schedule continues through mid-March with games most nights for at least one of the Sansom teams! In tournament action, the Senior Boys and Girls will be heading to NW Calgary to participate in the Northwest Classic Basketball Tournament, jointly hosted by Simon Fraser and HD Cartwright schools on February 2-3. That same weekend, our Junior teams head to Louis Riel School for the Bison Brawl invitational tournament. February 9, the Senior teams are once again in action, this time at Lester B. Pearson High School for the Patriots Winter Classic feeder tournament. The final event on the tournament schedule for 2018 is our very own SPIT Invitational tournament, which will see the Senior Basketball teams play host to Sir John A. MacDonald, Tom Baines and Woodman schools in what should be an amazing event! SPIT 2018 is slated for March 9-10.
Those who are patiently waiting for Badminton and/or Track & Field season, those are scheduled to get underway following Spring Break, at the beginning of April.
