Learning & Growing

Athletics

Athletics at Greenwood are infused with the spirit of learning and growth.
Athletics are not only about competition (though Greenwood has garnered over 50 championship banners in its short history). It’s about what athletes learn from the experience of competing - being part of a team, stretching physical limits, maintaining focus and winning or losing gracefully. That feeling of teamwork carries over into the classroom, and prepares our students for their postsecondary lives.

Where We Play

Greenwood is a member of the Conference of Independent Schools Athletic Association (CISAA) and competes with other schools of approximately the same size. Some teams compete up a division (with larger schools) to be eligible to qualify for Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations (OFSAA) Championships. So far, we have had OFSAA qualifiers in boys’ volleyball, girls’ volleyball, girls' cross-country, co-ed skiing and co-ed snowboarding, as well as many individual athletes in swimming, tennis and track and field.

As for our facilities, our second gym - completed in September 2016 - has doubled our capacity for indoor athletics. Nearby facilities including Leaside Arena, Deer Park Pool and Cherry Beach are also used to support our teams.
“I loved Greenwood athletics because the focus was always on developing, having fun and being a great teammate. There’s so much more to be learned from sport than just the skills, and Greenwood does an excellent job at ensuring students understand that.”
Robin Ketcheson ('15)
