Athletics

Athletics: Volleyball is still running – practices only, socially distanced – following all Health and Safety protocols.

We have been taking sign-up for Basketball, practices only, socially distanced – following all Health and Safety protocols, but nothing has yet begun. We are not sure about what will run for Winter sports. It is important to know that the sign-up with Mr. Pannun is NOT sign-up for “Gym time,” but rather it is sign-up for team practice and training, as schedule by Athletics. NO games.

Our King George Esports Teams has won three of four inter-school competitions! Go Dragons!

Cross-Country Finals - Update info below!**

Normally, King George has a number of athletic programs and teams, including soccer, volleyball, basketball and track and field. 

Mr. Jeevan Pannun is the King George Athletic Director for 2020-2021. You can see below that we are making some progress to wards our goal of returning to sports! We hope to have more good news re school sports, soon.

We will not be offering all Fall Sports, and we cannot predict how rules might change in the future. There are many necessary restrictions in Stage Two, but there are also some opportunities to get our students more active and engaged at school.

Esports: NEW! one team of five has been formed and will compete for KG.

The BC School Sport "Return to Sport Plan" is one of the important resources in our KG planning. It is, however, important to note that the VSB has additional requirements and restrictions beyond those of BCSS: related to school facilities use, spectators and use of outside (non-VSB staff) coaches or sponsors. 

Currently, no outside coaches or spectators are permitted in our planning. All of our KG Athletics activity will involve monitoring of safe social distancing, hand cleaning before and after all activity, cleaning of equipment at the start of all activity, cleaning of used spaces between activities, and staff/student wearing of masks before and after sporting activity.  

While inter-school competition is currently not permitted in-person, there may be a possibility of virtual competitions in sports such as cross country running. 

All other athletic activity (except regular PE classes) at KG will likely be of a training and practice nature, conducted entirely within the school student cohort. Any intra-school competition would have to be in a sport that is easily socially distanced during the game.

Our Athletic Director Mr. Pannun is working very hard with staff and students to evaluate our capacity to offer safe, in school return to athletic activity.
