Interscholastic Teams

Clarence Sansom School offers interscholastic teams in the following areas:

  • Cross Country
  • Soccer
  • Volleyball
  • Wrestling
  • Basketball
  • Badminton
  • Track and Field

The junior high school philosophy encourages high participation, and therefore, there is a gradual emphasis from low competition in Grade 7 to a more highly skilled and competitive competition at the Grade 9 level.

Clarence Sansom Sports Code of Ethics for Players, Coaches, and Spectators

"Whether I am a player, coach, or spectator at a school athletic function, I realize that I am under the school's jurisdiction.

Because my actions reflect on the school that I represent, I recognize my responsibility to exemplify the highest standards of conduct.

I will:

  • Offer constructive support of my team, rather than criticize the opposition.
  • Show appreciation of good plays by both teams.
  • As a host, welcome the visitors as guests, offering all possible assistance.
  • As a visitor, respect the property of the host school and accept the host school's regulations.
  • Recognize the official's integrity, realizing the difficulty of their decision.
  • Accept the official's decision as final.
  • Respect the feelings of all participants and show sympathy for an injured or disqualified player.
  • Learn the rules of the game.
  • Accept either victory or defeat graciously, respecting efforts displayed by all. Express thanks to those responsible for the opportunity to enjoy a school sports activity.
