The Soccer Academy is scheduled as follows for the 2018/19 school year. Please note this is subject to change for next year (2019/20).

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.

About the Soccer Academy

In September 2012, the North Vancouver School District formed a partnership with the North Shore Girls’ Soccer Club to offer the Soccer Academy at Windsor Secondary School. The Soccer Academy provides for the participation of all students, male and female, regardless of their soccer experience.

The Soccer Academy consists of a soccer curriculum as set out by the North Shore Girls’ Soccer Club and in compliance with the BC Ministry of Education’s Prescribed Learning Outcomes for Physical and Health Education (PHE) and Active Living 11-12. Students earn their grade-equivalent PHE/Active Living credit upon successful completion of the program.

The Soccer Academy will be held in either block 4 or block 8 of the secondary timetable, depending on the cohort. Registration in the Soccer Academy will not affect a player’s ability to play on their home school’s soccer team. Please note: transportation to and from the Academy is the responsibility of the parent/guardian.
