Welcome to St. Francis Xavier! The only elementary sports academy in Southern Alberta! Students in grades 4-6 enrolled in the St. FX Sports & Wellness Academy will receive an introduction and increased skill development in a multi-sport model. Students will have the opportunity to participate in various sports. They will also have a chance to experience a variety of fitness and sports options on explore days throughout the school year. Some of the exciting explore days we have tried and will continue to expand on are: golf, tennis, rock climbing, sledge hockey, fitness training, dance and many more!
Our Academy runs two afternoons every week, using facilities within the school, Medicine Hat College, Big Marble Go Centre, YMCA and numerous others within the Medicine Hat community. The Sports & Wellness Academy program aligns with the school's inclusive approach that welcomes all abilities to build on an increased focus on physical literacy and will be taught by teachers and community supports.
There is an additional programming fee of $50.00 per month to participate in the Sports & Wellness Academy that will pay to offset the costs to operate this program.
