Sports have become a significant element of a balanced elementary program. Opportunities for healthy competition with athletes from other schools build sportsmanship in our students. Sunnybrook School is a member of the Small Schools Athletic Federation. Our older students participate in co-ed SSAF tournaments with other schools in the GTA.
SBS offers many opportunities for student participation in athletics. Our teams compete in:
- Cross country
- Soft ball
- Track and field
The experience of competing against other schools, developing team cooperative skills, supporting peers, learning to win and lose graciously are all integral to the team sports experience at SBS. Our students enjoy their challenges and celebrate their victories as their skills and sportsmanship grow in their elementary years. The team experience builds character and collaborative skills while being a lot of fun for the students.
SBS parents take pride in coming out in support of our young athletes, and they contribute to the spirit of competition in our school. Parent attendance at tournaments helps our teachers to keep the events both fun and safe for our students.
SSAF tournaments offer a unique opportunity for our students to develop significant skills beyond the classroom. We get a wonderful turnout for our teams, who experience success in their tournaments. Our team mascot is Merton the Wizard and our athletes wear their SBS colours with pride.
