Seeking to provide intermediate students with greater athletic opportunities, the Upper Canada District School Board will launch a separate sports league this fall. While Board schools will still participate with organizations such as the Leeds- Grenville Elementary School Athletic Asso- ciation, the Board has decided to create its own league this year to supplement compe- titions hosted by regional bodies. The new Upper Canada Sports Council, designed for grades 7 and 8 students, will be limited to UCDSB schools and will run a variety of sports activities beginning with volleyball, basketball and track and field competitions. The goal is not to supplant current sport- ing organizations, but to supplement what they offer so our students benefit, said Su- perintendent David Coombs. “What is the purpose of sports and ex- tracurriculars?” Coombs asked a recent or- ganizational meeting in Kemptville at the North Grenville Municipal Centre. “We think it’s greater than coaching or playing on suc- cessful teams. We think it’s about belong- ing, equity and inclusion, so we’re not afraid to innovate and try something different.” The goal is to provide a higher level of competition for intermediate students in athletics and to provide grassroots devel- opment for coaching, student skill level, and officiating of sports. The game plan is to hold an Upper Can- ada volleyball championship in December, an Upper Canada basketball championship in March and an Upper Canada track and field championship in June. There will be competitions for both girls and boys, and the Board is even considering including both A and B-level teams in regional com- petitions leading up to the championships so that more students can participate. Schools can still participate in events with LGESAA and other groups should they choose, said Trish Brown, principal at Tagwi Secondary School who is leading the initia- tive with Ron Ferguson, vice-principal at Al- monte District High School. “This is not in any way an attempt to un- dermine, or change or alter anything that is going on at our schools now that’s really awesome and good,” explained Brown. “We want to push it and extend it here so we can energize our kids and take sport to a new level.” UCDSB launches new sports council Robyn Guindon Pharmacie Ltée.
