Our Athletics philosophy is an extension of our school philosophy in that we strive to create a community based on an ethic of care, inclusion and excellence. We enlist enthusiastic, dedicated volunteer coaches from our staff who work to ensure that every student is treated with respect, and given the tools required to have success. We believe that extra-curricular programs are a great way of engaging our students, and can help to foster a sense of school spirit, and belonging within the school community.

At Ted Harrison, we try to provide a large variety of opportunities for our students to get involved in a variety of inter-school athletics the Calgary Middle Level Schools Amateur Athletics (CMLSAA). These programs are available to students in grades six through nine. In addition to this, we also provide opportunities to our grade five students to be a part of athletics clubs that run during the year. We strive to teach our student athletes not only the skills of the sport they are involved in, but the values that are an integral part of being on a team, and being a representative of our school in the community.

It is our belief that students should be given a fair try-out to demonstrate their knowledge, understanding, and execution of an activity. When selecting a team, coaches consider many factors in addition to overall skill level. Students who are not successful in making a school team are encouraged to attend one of the multiple other ways to be involved with school athletics.

We participate in a variety of middle school athletics programs including:

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

We would encourage every student who is interested to come and try out, or ask one of the physical education teachers if they ever have any questions.

Go Timberwolves!
