March 04
Basketball schedule / Volleyball coaches needed

Hello Folks, 

Welcome to March Break!!  A few items on the sports page for SWS today. 

The basketball season will resume after the March Break with a week of makeup games (see calendar).  The following week we will get into basketball playoffs.  All of this weather permitting.  Once basketball is complete, we will roll into volleyball season.  Coaches are in place for varsity girls and junior varsity/triple ball girls teams as well as varsity boys.  We are hoping to be able to have a JV or triple ball team for boys this year.  For this to happen, we will need a coach(es).  If it is a grade 6 team then it will be a triple ball team.  If the makeup of the team is grade 6/7, then it would be a JV team.  If anyone is interested you can contact the school.  The ideal candidate will have volleyball and coaching experience.  First aid is a definite asset.​

December 14
practice change

The boys basketball team have changed their practice time for this evening .  They will now practice tonight from 5:30-7:00 pm.  The girls basketball team will still have their regular practice time tomorrow from 3:15-4:30.  Unfortunately, at this time, due to the recent Covid restrictions, only grade 7 & 8 players may practice.​
