The purpose of the athletic program at Pickering Christian School is to provide students a setting to glorify God through the development and exercise of personal character, sportsmanship, self-discipline, and athletic ability. Student athletes are encouraged to do their best and to learn the vital life skill of being a team player. In victory or defeat, students are taught to demonstrate both grace and dignity.
In addition to its Physical Education program, Pickering Christian School has extra-curricular sports teams for Soccer, Cross Country Running, Flag Football, Volleyball, Basketball, Badminton, Track & Field, Softball and Ultimate Frisbee. These boys’, girls’ and some co-ed teams compete against other Toronto area Christian Schools.
Typically tryouts are open to Grade 4 – 8 students depending on the level of competition. Students are required to provide some of their own equipment and will be informed by the coaches what is required. The students generally miss one or two days of school for each sport to play in the tournaments. Practices are held at morning and lunch recesses and occasionally after school.
