Students are actively encouraged to be active both during recess and on our school athletic teams. Teams can vary from year to year based on the availability of coaches. Participation on Grade 7 and 8 teams is determined through tryouts and criteria established and shared by the coach. The students chosen to represent the school on these teams must be students in good standing. Team shirts and equipment used by the teams are to be properly cared for and returned to the school immediately following each sporting event.

Cross Country

There are two cross country seasons; Fall and Spring.  In the Fall, runners participate in the Arnprior Optimist Run, as well as the Cobden Milk Run.  The Spring season has students attending Run For Your Life in Arnprior and Fitzroy-Over-The-Carp Run.


Volleyball season is November/December. Practices take place at recess, and before and after school. The 2013/2014 teams of Grade 7 and 8 girls and boys participate in their tournaments late November/early December. We are always very proud of their efforts and accomplishments.


Basketball season is January/February.  Practices take place at recess, and before and after school for Intermediate students.
