Local student athletes like NPSS’ Miles Savard (above) can take advantage of the new PacificSport and School District 60 sports academy to launch this fall based out of the Pomeroy Sport Centre.

A special sport academy program for student athletes was introduced by School District 60 and PacificSport Northern BC this week, catering to students entering Grade 10, 11 or 12 as of Sept. 2013.

The academy program entails students attending their secondary school in the morning, being transported to the Pomeroy Sport Centre then attending Sport School in the afternoon from Monday to Thursday every week.

According to the press release from PacificSport, the program’s benefits are physical literacy and fitness, sport science education, access to training facilities, onsite teacher support, customized training sessions, transportation, interaction with other athletes with similar goals and an understanding and accepting peer group.

PacificSport will be holding an open house for interested parents, athletes and coaches on Tuesday, Feb. 27 at 6:30 p.m. at the Pomeroy Sport Centre’s Energetic Learning Campus.

Student athletes who commit at least 400 to 600 sport-specific hours are encouraged to submit their applications by Friday, April 5 at 4 p.m.
