Track & Field athletes from across Canada will converge on Toronto’s Varsity Stadium in May to participate and compete in the third edition of the NIKE High School Grand Prix.
This event unites student-athletes and teacher-coaches from coast-to-coast in a unique, cross-cultural event that has seen a great response in the first two years of competition. Students from across the country enjoy the opportunity to mix competition and sportsmanship while building new friendships and having the experience of a lifetime!
With student-athletes representing 12 provinces and territories, OFSAA is proud to introduce the Boys’ and Girls’ teams that will be participating on behalf of Ontario.
Congratulations to the girls’ and boys’ Ontario teams!
Girls’ – Lord Dorchester Secondary School (Dorchester)
A small school of 520 students outside of London, the team looks forward to learning community values and training techniques from other student-athletes across the country, and build track & field support in their school community.
Coaches: James Tennant, Jen Ashby
Boys’ – Holy Cross Catholic Secondary School (Kingston)
In the past five years with no track suitable for competition, the track & field team was forced to travel to Belleville to compete. With leadership in the school and community they have built a new track and hope participation in the HSGP can help inspire student-athletes to rebuild the track & field team too.
Coaches: Joanna Besselink, Robin Dziemienko
