News - October 12 update

Hello Churchill Volleyball Parent/Guardians, 
We are pleased to bring you the following update regarding volleyball games in CBE high schools. 
As of October 12, 2021, the parents/guardians and siblings of student athletes, who comprise a household cohort, will be able to attend indoor high school athletic games. Spectator attendance will be limited to 1/3 of fire code capacity. Therefore, spectators will be admitted on a first come, first seated basis and exceptions beyond capacity can NOT be made. 
Upon admission as a household cohort, attendees must:  
•  acknowledge that they meet the requirements as set forth in the COVID-19 Alberta Health Daily Checklist  
•  sanitize their hands  
•  be masked at all times (except as set out in CMOH 44-2021 sections 3.4, 3.5, and 13.6)  
•  maintain 2 metres physical distance between household cohorts throughout the event  
•  remain seated throughout the game 
Individuals who do not comply will be asked to leave and this may lead to the prohibition of spectators at indoor events. 
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. 


Hello Churchill Football Families,

There is a change in attendance policy from the Calgary Senior High School Athletic Association regarding football games at Shouldice Park. "In order to manage football spectator numbers and be compliant with the public health orders, only Parents/Guardians (and accompanied siblings) will be admitted to football games. "
In addition, we will be directing families to a designated side of the stadium and reminding them to social distance. 
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.


What does it mean to be a Bulldog? 

Many of us are familiar with the feeling of uncertainty when we first walked into Churchill with the sea of strangers and the overwhelming possibilities in store for us. We also remember what it was like to put ourselves out there in tryouts and our nervous jitters as we try to put our skills on display. As we got settled in, we found a family, one that is competitive yet welcoming; a place where we were quickly humbled, but then built confidence and leadership. Together we cheered, we cried, we laughed, and most of all, we grew. Growth came from facing our weaknesses and our identity came from how we approach our shortfalls. As Bulldogs, we do not stay stagnant, we are dynamic in taking every chance to be inquisitive and open minded. Being a Bulldog is an accumulation of all the chances we took despite the challenges we faced. With every fall, every foreign idea, we leaned into them and found comfort in being uncomfortable. This family of Bulldogs found strength in prioritizing internal growth over superficial external ideas of achievement. In the end, we are united, not just through the sports we partake, but through the strength of our passions that gave us the will to be vulnerable before finding success.  To returning athletes, be the leaders who represent this incredible community. Be the relentless competitors that this school is known for. Even at times of hardship, find strength in the reasons why you are here. Before you turn away from the impossible, believe in the hard work you put in towards your passions and follow through with every step you take. Whatever the next year may look like, you have the responsibility to make the most out of all situations and find your own definition of success. Stay strong, be a Bulldog.  We would definitely not be the people we are today if we did not have our coaches steering us to not only be better athletes, but more importantly, better people. We commend you for your unwavering patience and dedication to us athletes and in gifting this opportunity to pursue our passions. In the beginning, it seemed like you were our biggest obstacle, the ones we wanted to impress the most. The ones who challenged us to be uncomfortable and possibly made us question our existence. Over time, it became evident that those challenges our coaches place in front of us were our greatest tools for growth and advancement of ourselves. These stepping stones disguised as obstacles were a test to our mental toughness and commitment to being a Bulldog. Thank you for believing in and expecting greatness from us before we even knew that greatness was possible. Thanks to you, we will all be using the skills and the lessons we learned from this athletic program to find success in our future endeavors.  We hope we made you proud.

On behalf of our graduating students Jean Tu and Charles Taimani.
