Athletics

Teams

Jack James has a proud tradition of competing in athletic interscholastic sports. Our teams compete in the Calgary High School Sport League made up of schools with a similar population. We offer volleyball, basketball, and badminton. We compete against the large schools in wrestling, cross-country, swimming and track and field. Jack James and Forest Lawn have become a dual campus and as a result students are eligible to participate in sports on either campus in consultation with their respective administration. For sports that we are unable to offer, like football and rugby, our neighbour school, Forest Lawn High School, accepts our athletes.

Intramurals 

We offer an extensive noon hour intramural program at Jack James.  The focus of our intramural program is to give our students competitive activities that are based on fun and involvement.  Everybody is always welcome to join these teams.  You don’t have to be skilled to be involved and enjoy yourself.  Flag football, volleyball, 3-on-3 basketball, floor-hockey, badminton, and indoor soccer make up our intramural league. 

Through active participation, staff and students contribute to the positive spirit at Jack James High School and positively impact  their personal health and wellness. 

JJHS Sports

Men’s and women’s volleyball and cross country will start in September. See Mr. Allen if you are interested.

Any students that want to play football will need to or check in with Mr. Allen the week before school starts (August 20 – 24) to get forms or head over to Forest Lawn High School on August 27 to sign up. The first day of football practice will be at 3:30 PM Wednesday, August 29, at Forest Lawn High School. The fees are $200.00.
