Team Descriptions

Volleyball (Jr/Sr Girls, Jr/Sr Boys)

Junior Girls

If you like volleyball and want to get involved on a team, meet new friends, have fun with league games, team building activities, fundraisers, tournaments, volleyball workshops, beach volleyball and participate in an out of town overnight tournament, please come out the first day of classes in September to meet your coaches Ms. McKenzie and Ms. Skjenna. You don't need to be the most skilled volleyball player, you just need a positive approach, a good work ethic and you need to be committed to your team. This team runs from September through November. You will need to pick up an athletic tryout form from the Phys. ed. office on the first day of school.

Junior Boys

Volleyball is a great way to get immediately connected into the amazing athletics community at Forest Lawn. Make sure that you attend the start up athletic meetings for more information.

Soccer (Girls/Boys)

The Forest Lawn soccer program welcomes all players dedicated to developing skills, creating positive relationships, and uncovering their individual potential. Whether you consider yourself a formidable defender, a fleet-footed striker, or a clever midfielder, our coaching staff of teachers, volunteers, and former student players will help you build confidence on and off the pitch. Girls soccer fall season runs from September to October, with the Boys spring season running from May to June. Help bring home that city championship, and create the beginning of Forest Lawn’s soccer legacy!

Basketball (Jr/Sr Boys, Jr/Sr Girls)

The game that challenges one’s mind, strength, and limits. Join the passion, join the legacy, and join the momentum. Please attend introductory athletics meetings for further information.

Wrestling

Forest Lawn has a proud tradition as one of the toughest wrestling programs in Calgary. Open to all students regardless of size, ability or previous experience we have produced male and female Calgary and Provincial Champions year after year and are the Men's 4A Provincial 2nd place team in 2018. Our wrestlers have become leaders on many other teams as a result of the balance, fitness and toughness acquired through combative sport. Wrestling also has a very strong post-secondary connection with the University of Calgary, University of Alberta, University of Saskatoon, and Simon Fraser regularly recruiting from Calgary graduates.

Track

Want to see where your jumping, running, throwing skills will take you? Consider joining track and field. Amazing coaching, amazing opportunity and a chance to hone your individual skills while building awesome school community.

Dance

Ever thought of dancing but never had the opportunity? Or maybe you are already a dancer looking to advance your technical skills and increase your performance opportunities. Dance team is an awesome way to train in Jazz/Contemporary/Hip Hop all while learning new choreography to perform in citywide dance competitions and festivals. Dance team auditions occur the last week of October. Student must be registered in Dance 15 or Ballet. The dance team also gets to participate in Eastside Dance Festival where team members get the opportunity to train and perform with professional dancers and choreographers from Calgary in Jazz, Hip Hop, African, Contemporary and many other styles.

Badminton

Singles or doubles take your pick! Improve your agility, hand eye coordination and stamina. Join the legacy of many provincial champions by joining Badminton at Forest Lawn.

Cross Country

Cross country is a great way to be part of a team and get, build endurance and spend time learning something new. No tryouts, fall sport, just need to enjoy running and being a part of a team.

Swim Team

The Forest Lawn Swim Team is called the Titan Swim Team. Students met at Bob Bahan Swimming Pool on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7 am to 8 AM. All students are welcome. Beginner swimmers learn how to do the strokes. More experienced swimmers practice their strokes and work on endurance. In December everyone participates in a citywide swim meet at the Repsol Center. We look forward to seeing you at the pool!

Rugby

Rugby - both women’s and men’s - is one of the fastest growing sports in Canada and here at Forest Lawn High School. Rugby is a sport for all types of athletes: whether your game is based on speed, power, or finesse, there are plenty of opportunities to find a home on the rugby pitch. If you play soccer, basketball, football, hockey, or wrestle, you probably already have some skills that would make you an awesome rugby player. Plus, the high school rugby season is a great opportunity to continue developing your on-field decision-making, quickness, power, and overall fitness. Our coaches - both teacher/local club coaches & current/former players - are committed to helping you build skills and make rugby season an incredible, exciting experience. Be a part of a special group of athletes during the spring athletics season and bring home a banner with Titans Rugby!

Field Hockey (Girls)

A game that is played all over the world and has origins all the way back to the Middle Ages. Our team is fierce, competitive, skilled, and a great place to belong. Keep a look out for spring sports if you are interested.
