Yukon Sports School
Physical activity is crucial to the way students think and feel. It has a positive impact on overall physical health, mental well-being and on the capacity to learn. The FHC Sports School is based on the Canadian Sport School model used in British Columbia. It emphasizes mastering fundamental movement skills and overall physical development in students, whether they already consider themselves athletes or whether they are simply interested in enhancing their physical fitness.
Students will spend half of each day focusing on sport training and half on academics. The program is structured to allow students to participate while still meeting requirements for mandatory academic courses. The sport training curriculum will be supplemented with guest trainers and speakers on a variety of fitness and nutrition topics aimed at improving physical literacy.
