Ice hockey is one of Canada’s national pastimes and, as Canada’s World School for Boys, Vancouver’s St. George’s School offers talented student-athletes a hockey program that is motivating, demanding, and transformational. This program is part of the School’s overall compulsory Games Program, which offers 19 competitive and more than 30 recreational sports programs.
St. George’s School offers all age-appropriate students who meet the School’s admission requirements, the opportunity to also apply to play for a Bantam Varsity (birth year 2005-06), Bantam Prep (birth year 2005-06), and two midget-aged teams (details TBA). These teams are registered with the Canadian Sport School Hockey League (CSSHL), an organization whose mission it is “to be national leaders in education-based hockey.” In the coming academic years, we expect to fill out our hockey program by adding additional teams to accommodate older age categories.
