Official Opening of the New Sardis Falcons Athletic Hall of Fame- October 2021
We are now accepting nominations for the June 2022 Selection Committee Meeting. See the nomination form attached at the bottom of this page.
Welcome to Falcon Athletics for 2021/22
We are very excited to announce a full return to competitive athletics this year at Sardis Secondary! We fully expect to run a full slate of athletic teams in the Fall, Winter and Spring seasons.
Please watch this page, and the athletic hallway whiteboard (outside the main gym doors between the washrooms) for try-out dates and times. For some teams, they will only be practice announcements as try-outs are not necessary. This page also many not be regularly updated so students should listen to the daily school announcements as well.
BC School Sports has mandated, for Covid safety, that masks will be required at all times during indoor extra-curricular sports for everyone except players while competing or strenuous practicing.
Coaches and players are urged to continue regularly cleaning equipment and sanitizing hands during practice and competition.
Please challenge your athletic fears, after a year of no competition, and represent your school and play with your friends while you have the opportunity! See you on the field, or the court, or the pool etc.....
