Interscholastic Sport

The aim of Middle Years Athletics (Grades 5-9) is to provide students with planned and balanced programming to develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes for physically active and healthy lifestyles.

The objectives are:

  • To encourage the participation of students in Middle Years Athletics through interscholastic programs and events.
  • To provide the organization and administration for an interscholastic athletic program for member schools.
  • To promote the qualities of sportspersonship, fairplay, leadership, good citizenship and the general objectives of education in Manitoba.
  • To promote excellence for all participants in athletic competition (i.e.: coaches, referees, players, etc).
  • To promote athletics in cooperation with academic programs. The Division recognizes student participants as Student-Athletes. This means that participants are students first and athletes second and that playing on school teams or participating in divisionally sponsored events is a privilege and not a right. Each school shall establish the criteria for participation and communicate these to the students and parents.
