Introducing our Athletic Department

Introducing our Athletic Department

We are extremely proud and excited to announce the creation of our very own athletic department! Starting in September 2023, SCIDES will offer a new range of sport-specific courses designed for athletes to gain credit for training and competing while supplementing their athletic competition with learning aimed at facilitating both personal and athletic growth. While we have a lineup of seven courses to start with, this will soon expand to nine courses; we will continue to explore new course options to meet the needs of as many individuals as possible! If you are an athlete or interested in athletics, a full-time SCIDES student, cross-enrolled, or looking to cross-enroll, we encourage you to sign up. If you are interested in enrolling for any of the courses in our athletics department, please reach out to Mr. Corey Hermiston via email: chermiston@365.sd58.bc.ca

High Performance Athlete 11 and 12

HPA 11 and 12 are designed specifically for athletes across the diverse fields of athletic competition to gain credit for their athletic-specific training and competition while also providing them with specific learning related to athletic performance. Learners will set specific, measurable, and attainable goals related to both training and performance, demonstrate their engagement in training and competition, and reflect on their progress. This reflective and holistic approach to training and competing aims to demonstrate how intentional practice and deep consideration of performance facilitate both athletic and personal growth. Additionally, learners will explore the principles of high performance in athletics by engaging with content on athlete physiology, sports nutrition, sports psychology, and sport-specific training to deepen their understanding of how contemporary athletes achieve success. In HPA 12, learners will explore the principles of high performance in athletics by engaging with content on injury prevention and recovery, mental health awareness and resiliency, as well as consider social and ethical issues in contemporary athletics (like the use, and specifically the dangers, of performance-enhancing drugs and painkillers). Learners will also explore career paths related to their specific field, including paths related to competition and post-competition. Whether you are a high-performance athlete right now, have your sights set on high performance, or are competing in sports and are interested in the principles of high performance, whether you are a beginner, advanced, or anywhere in between, this course is designed for you!  

Learners in this course are required to engage in an athletic field of some kind while completing the content, as 60% of the course is specifically allocated for credit related to training and competition. 

Hockey Academy 10, 11, and 12

HA 10 is designed specifically for hockey players to gain credit for their sport-specific training and competition while also providing them with specific learning related to performance and the world of hockey. Learners will set specific, measurable, and attainable goals related to both training and performance, demonstrate their engagement in training and competition, and reflect on their progress. This reflective and holistic approach to training and competing aims to demonstrate how intentional practice and deep consideration of performance facilitate both athletic and personal growth. Additionally, learners will explore hockey’s history and consider how the game has advanced both athletically and socially, as well as engage with principles related to stats and analytics, mental health and resiliency, and the factors that make hockey teams successful. In HA 11, learners will continue to explore hockey’s history and consider how the game has advanced both athletically and socially, as well as engage with principles related to hockey systems and respect in the game.  Learners will also examine case studies of prominent hockey players as they detail their experience with mental health while playing hockey and consider how best to apply strategies related to positive mental health maintenance. In HA 12, learners will examine the principles of effective coaching, consider the impact of media in the game, explore hockey’s intentional move toward diversity and inclusion, and continue to consider the importance of mental health maintenance and resiliency. Whether you are a hockey player competing at the junior, academy, or club level, male or female, whether you are a beginner, advanced, or anywhere in between, this course is designed for you!  

Learners in this course are required to be engaged with hockey training and competition of some kind while completing the content, as 60% of the course is specifically allocated for credit related to training and competition. 

Fitness and Conditioning 11 and 12

Fitness and Conditioning 11 and 12 are designed to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of fitness, exercise physiology, and conditioning techniques. The two courses are aligned with the British Columbia curriculum and aim to empower students to make informed decisions about their personal fitness and well-being. Through a combination of theoretical knowledge, practical exercises, and critical thinking, students will develop the skills necessary to lead a healthy and active lifestyle. The course goals and objectives include gaining an understanding of exercise physiology, assessing fitness levels, designing effective workouts, conditioning techniques, nutrition and recovery, injury prevention and safety, as well as social and psychological aspects of fitness.
