Athletics, academics, advantage! The Greater St. Albert Sports Academy is based on the philosophy that students can learn through sport to maintain or improve academic standing and reach their athletic potential at the same time. The Academy currently offers boys and girls who have a desire to commit to the program, an outstanding opportunity to receive specialized skill and fitness training in hockey, soccer or the gymnastics-cheer-dance disciplines. Students will have access to elite level coaches who have experience in the NHL, FIFA, NCAA and WHL organizations to name a few.

Sports like you have never had before! Sports Academy students will not only receive specialized skill and fitness training in hockey, soccer or gymnastics, cheer and dance they will also have the benefit of an enhanced physical education program.

Students will encounter physical workouts on and off the ice/field and will receive professional instruction within an environment suitable for their overall development as a player.
