Soccer Academy

Located at Windsor Secondary, Grades 8-12

The Soccer Academy is scheduled for both Day 1 and Day 2. Students are placed in their class by the Soccer Academy and Windsor Secondary.

​In partnership with the North Shore Girls' Soccer Club, the academy provides for the participation of all students, regardless of their soccer experience. The Soccer Academy consists of a soccer curriculum as set out by the North Shore Girls' Soccer Club, though the program is open to all genders, and is in compliance with the BC Ministry of Education's Prescribed Learning Outcomes for Physical Education.  Students earn their grade-equivalent P.E. credit upon successful completion of the program.
