PE COURSE OUTLINES AND SMS ATHLETICS

Please find all information regarding PE and SMS Athletics in the pages above. Any students planning to compete and play on our school teams must have both the SMS PE t-shirt and athletic shorts. The SMS PE gym strip is used as part of our uniforms in grade 6/7 for our school teams. As for our grade 8 athletic teams, the PE strip is used as part of our practice uniform. PE strip can be purchased through our office - $7 for a shirt and $13 for shorts. Students should write their name on the inside tags of both the shirt and shorts so we can get them back to their owner in case the PE strip is left in the change rooms or gym.
Gr. 8 volleyball, Gr. 8 Cross-Country Running, Gr. 6/7 volleyball, and Gr. 6/7 Rugby will begin the second week of school. Students need to always pay close attention to the announcements throughout each day.
Any students wanting to improve their basketball and volleyball skills are encouraged to sign-up for and participate in Shuswap's Sports AM Academy. Information on the program can be found in the above page.
