There is nothing quite like the leadership and life lessons learned through sport. Whether pulling on a Dragon jersey to compete against another independent school or stepping out onto the court or field for a friendly intramural game with classmates, Trafalgar girls enjoy ample doses of fun, challenge and excitement.
The primary focus of Trafalgar Castle School’s athletics program is creating an encouraging environment for girls to engage in healthy active living. In addition to the physical benefits, girls who participate in sport learn self-discipline through training and competition, and develop the heart to persevere after a tough game. They also learn how to be a supportive teammate who can win with class and lose with grace.
The character and integrity that student-athletes develop in their sport accentuate the life lessons in other areas of their Trafalgar education. Athletics also provides our girls with amplified opportunities to build focus, concentration and the time management skills needed to juggle a busy schedule. Sport also offers rich opportunities to build sophisticated social intelligence, such as understanding when to lead and when to follow.
Our competitive teams are guided by enthusiastic and qualified coaches who know how to support young athletes. We also offer well-sourced and maintained facilities, including a fitness centre and pool, playing fields and tennis courts, all of which compliment the double gymnasium set aside in its own building on campus.
In our competitive sports program, Trafalgar Castle competes with the other independent schools in Ontario through our membership in the Conference of Independent School Athletic Association (CISAA). The students compete in different age groups in a variety of sports over the three school terms.
