The Physical Education Department and Lord Byng Athletics work together in order to create a successful program which involves providing opportunities for as many student athletes as possible. Lord Byng Athletics represents the school’s competitive sport program in the Vancouver Secondary School Athletic Association (VSSAA).  Teams compete against other schools, during and after school hours, in Vancouver and against other schools throughout BC.  All the teachers in the Physical Education department coach teams and the PE curriculum is organized around the sport seasons being played.   For example, Volleyball season for girls begins in September therefore the girls first unit is volleyball.  Meanwhile grade 8 and 9 boys start Rugby in September so the boys first unit is Rugby.
