Athletics at Albert College is supported by great facilities and dedicated coaches. Every student at Albert College participates in athletics and therefore every student to who wants to play on a team is invited to participate. In addition to extra-curricular athletic activities students enjoy healthy active living class. During this class, students develop the knowledge they need to make healthy choices and further their athletic experience by participating in a variety of physical activities. Through athletics, students build their sense of self, learn to interact positively with others, develop teamwork skills and the ability to think critically.
EPLC and Junior School
Aside from weekly physical education classes, all students are encouraged to become involved in after-school athletics. Various sports and activities are offered (subject to interest and staff availability) throughout the school year. Various lunch time athletics and activities are offered throughout the year as well. The following list is a sample of some of the after school athletics and activities which are offered: cross-country, track and field, basketball, soccer and intramural games.
Athletics is a vital part of the Middle School experience. Over the course of the year, students have the opportunity to participate in soccer, field lacrosse, cross-country, swimming, volleyball, basketball, softball, track and field, rugby and a variety of junior house league events. Our athletes are coached by a dedicated group of staff members that are highly certified in their respective sports and seemingly tireless in their enthusiasm. Albert continues to further develop the athletic program at the school. Students are given the opportunity to try out for teams, refine their skills, try new things and develop a healthy, active lifestyle.
Albert College athletes are fortunate in having fine facilities, excellent coaches, and opportunities to play both against teams from the Conference of Independent Schools (CIS) and those in our local public association, the Bay of Quinte. As a member of the CIS our main competition lies with other members of our athletic association. Our travels take us west to Nicholls in Buffalo and to Rosseau Lake College to the north. In between lie many other private schools, so there is no lack of competition.
Each term there is a wide range of athletic opportunities. Some are competitive, some developmental and some simply recreational. Athletic oppourtunities include soccer, rugby, field lacrosse, field hockey, volleyball, basketball, swimming, racquet sports, track and field, fitness and cross-country.
