Jr. High Volleyball teams are split into Tier 1 and Tier 2 teams. Usually the Tier 1 team is made up of Gr. 8 & 9 players and the Tier 2 team is Gr. 7 & some Gr. 8 players. We usually place well in tournaments and have several banners in the gym from many different years.


Basketball Jr. High

We have Jr. High Basketball Teams and if there are enough players then they are split into Tier 1 & Tier 2 teams.

Basketball Elementary

Gr. 5 & 6¬† students have the opportunity to play ‘fun’ basketball¬† between January & February.¬† We usually attend one tournament within Pembina Hills towards the end of Feb. We sometimes host mini-tournaments here during the school day.


Jr. High students play soccer in the fall (optional) and usually attend at least one tournament at Fawcett or Pembina North School.

Cross Country Run

We offer a short season for students to participate in a Cross Country Run (Westlock Golf Course)


We offer Jr. High students the opportunity to play Badminton. Our season usually begins in March (after Basketball season) and continues until end of April. They play in Barrhead tournaments and we host a Neerlandia/Barrhead Challenge at BCH each year.

Track & Field

Jr. High students have an opportunity to participate in Track and Field events in late Spring and usually attend at least one competition within Pembina Hills school division.

Our Gr. 4-6 students have the opportunity to participate in Track & Field events along with other Pembina Hill’s schools – Clyde, Busby & Pembina North. We take turns hosting this event.

Starting in the 2018/2019 school year we have a Running Team. Mr. Brent Wierenga is the coach. Each school year we have an Elementary team and a Jr. High team. They usually compete in some events at the Edmonton Kinsmen Fieldhouse and Butterdome.
