Welcome to Falcon Athletics for 2020/21

*******A message regarding Falcon Athletics and Covid 19******

Please be advised that all high schools in BC are currently prohibited from entering into inter-school competition. As of September 10th, high schools may offer Fall Season opportunities for practice only if the practices follow the BC School Sports "Return to School Sport Plan."

Currently at Sardis, we have e-mailed an announcement to all families announcing a return to practice for the football team. We anticipate a similar e-mailed announcement sometime in September announcing a return to practice for Girls Field Hockey and Cross Country running. 

Beyond that, we have no other teams with volunteer coaches who are planning practices. If this changes, and another team starts-up, all Sardis families will receive an e-mailed announcement.

Sorry and thanks for your patience during these very challenging times.

***Copies of any team announcements are below in the file attachments for you to read.

November 26th, 2020 Update. We ended up also running girls volleyball practices for Grades 10-12. They have now ended. We have also announced a possible safe return to Basketball. See the attachment below.
