Student Life

Athletics

Building character through sport and fitness
At BSS, athletics are a vital part of the student experience. We offer students a variety of ways to be physically active, develop sport skills, learn to win and lose, and experience the joy of teamwork. Whether it’s just-for-fun activities, trying a new sport, or training and competing at a high level, BSS offers something for every student in the Junior, Middle and Senior Schools.
A wide selection of school teams mean students can represent BSS on the field, the court, or the ice. In addition to intramural teams, BSS is part of the Conference of Independent Schools Athletic Association, providing athletes with challenging competitive experiences.

Our superb facilities include four gyms, a pool, sports fields, two dance studios and a fitness centre. The Fitness Centre houses treadmills, stationary bikes, elliptical machines, weights and more, under the guidance of a qualified fitness professional.

Kyra, Grade 10 student

I do high performance skiing outside of school and I do three other sports at school. My counsellor has been unbelievable. She’s helped me and my parents stay on track with my courses and contact universities for scholarships.

Liv, Grade 7 student

The best thing about athletics at BSS is the friendships! You make new friends when you win and lose together. That makes us close as a team but also in class and everywhere else.

  • Golf – Developing your long game

    Golf is a physical and mental challenge. It’s also a valuable business skill and an enjoyable lifelong sport. Golf starts early at BSS with development opportunities in the Junior School. Development and competition streams are available in the Middle and Senior Schools.
  • Archery – Hitting the target

    The feeling of shooting a bow and hitting the bullseye is deeply satisfying. Archery helps build confidence, self- esteem, focus and patience. More than 40 BSS girls participate in archery from November to April. They are fortunate to be coached by a former Olympic coach, athlete and alumna.
  • Rugby – Testing your grit on the field

    By some accounts, it’s the fastest growing sport in North America. Rugby demands skill, strategy and physical toughness. With the support of staff members who are experienced players and coaches, BSS teams – U14 Touch Rugby 7s and Senior Rugby 7s – compete successfully in the CISAA league.
