High School: 12 YRS TO 18 YRS


The High School program allows all levels of athletes to set individual skill goals and build apparatus routines for personal achievement with the opportunity to perform in local events or to represent your High School under BC School Sport competitions. A fun opportunity to improve fitness and skills alongside schoolmates and friends.

All levels are eligible to compete in the BC High School competitions at their appropriate level; represent their school, their team level and the school district. A Zone meet is held in January and the BC High School Sport Provincial Championship meet is held in March.
