Welcome to SportsCan Academy

Sport Academies and schools have been in existence in Canada for over twenty years.

Sportscan has reviewed many of the programs across the country drawing on best practices from many of the private and public institutions that offer athletic/sport training during the normal school day. What we found was the common thread in all the quality programs was that they provided a supportive learning environment and flexible time tabling to allow the students enrolled in the program the opportunity to significantly advance their athletic skills while achieving a high level of academic success.

 

SportsCan Academy will provide an opportunity for children ages 6-18 looking for educational and athletic excellence. SportsCan will provide a full line of programs for the athlete enabling them to reach their full potential. These top quality programs include; academic instruction from certified teachers, access to high level coaching, academic support, post-secondary preparations (pursuing athletic & academic scholarships, grants, bursaries, and preparing SATS, etc...), injury management, physical conditioning, sports psychology, and sport nutrition counseling.

During the inagural year, SportsCan Academy will provide a general athletics programs geared towards grades 1-8. This program encourages healthy active lifestyles through providing children with strong fundamental movement and physical literacy skills. At SportsCan Academy, children will experience and learn all sports through certified coaches. By providing children with the ability to play all sports, they are able to later specialize in the one that they are most passionate about. In addition SportsCan Academy will provide a Flex program that is geared to those athletes currently training and competing at a competitive level. The Flex Program provides a level of scheduling flexibility to ensure that the student-athlete is able to succeed equally in the classroom and in sport. The Flex program provides an opportunity to schedule all tests, assignments, and other academic , allowing for training to take place during the day, and provides mental, nutritional, and conditioning programs suited to the individual students needs.
