Philosophy

 

Senior Girls Soccer Win Fraser Valley TitleAt Southridge, we believe students develop important character, leadership and personal and practical skills through participation in athletics. Involvement in athletics allows our students to develop a deeper connection with Southridge and we believe the opportunity to represent their school fosters a sense of spirit. We believe that participation in athletics assists students to develop an appreciation for the importance of life-long physical activity and well being.

In the Senior School, the focus is on developing competitive athletics programs with a performance mindset. Southridge fields competitive teams for both boys and girls in Grades 8 through 12. Each team strives to compete at the highest level and endeavors to win championships. Our teams compete for Surrey, Fraser Valley and Provincial Championships, as well as Independent School Association titles at the Provincial level. There are also opportunities for teams to participate in Provincial, National and International tours and as well as invitational tournaments throughout B.C.

In addition to the competitive athletics program, Southridge offers a wide range of recreational opportunities to allow students to meet the goals of the program and their needs for physical fitness. Recreational options include lunch-time activities centered around intramural activities and after-school activities related to physical fitness. All recreational programs welcome both boys and girls.
