At first look, the 47 degree slanted, 200-metre track at Burnaby's Velodrome is intimidating - how are riders on fixed gear bicycles with ultra-skinny tires to end up lapping around the rim of the track when one can hardly climb up the slippery ascent?
Due attention to physical activity has been a time honoured tradition at Vancouver College dating back to the school’s opening in 1922. The tradition continues today with a program of regular physical education classes for all grades and an active Intramural Sports program.
The Intramural program is open to all students from Grades 2 through 12 and gives the boys an opportunity to participate on a team during the lunch breaks.
Boys in Grades 7 - 12 can compete in 3 or 3 Basketball, Indoor Soccer, Two Handed Touch Football and various open gym activities.
Boys in Grades 2 - 6 compete in curriculum based games.
The program is voluntary and all one has to do is submit a team or join a team in any of the sports being offered.
