Did you know that St. Francis Xavier is the only elementary sports academy in Southern Alberta? Students in grades 4-6 enrolled in the St. FX Sports Academy will receive an introduction and increased skill development in core sports, such as soccer, volleyball, basketball and baseball. 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, water polo, sledge hockey, fitness training, dance and many more!
Our Academy runs two afternoons every week, using facilities at the school, Monsignor McCoy High School and in the Medicine Hat community. The optional Sports Academy program aligns with the school's 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 Academy that will pay to offset the costs to operate this program.
