Athletics Overview

G.S. Lakie Middle School is a proud member of the Lethbridge Schools Athletic Association (LSAA). We participate in five sports under this umbrella: X-Country, volleyball, basketball, badminton, and track & field. Seasons are as follows:

  • Cross Country - qualifications completed in PE class or at a school-wide run at Nicholas Sheran Park. Qualifications mid-September with LSAA City Championships the third week of September. South Zone Championships first week of October
  • Volleyball - ID camps commence the second week of September and the season ends the first week of November.
  • Basketball - ID camps typically commence the second week of November (around Remembrance Day), and the season ends the week before Family Daybreak in February. 
  • Badminton - ID camps commence immediately following Family Daybreak (late February) and typically end prior to the Easter break each year.
  • Track & Field - Practices are run in PE and in an after-school club with qualifications for the LSAA City Championships being completed in PE or at a G.S. Lakie track meet. The LSAA meet is usually hosted in mid to late May. South Zone championships follow that, usually the first week of June. 

We use the terminology "ID camps" at G.S. Lakie because we employ a no-cut policy at all public middle schools in the city. All participants wishing to participate in a sport at Lakie can sign up for the respective sport's ID camp and will be placed in a program that best matches their current skill level. The three levels of play at G.S. Lakie are house league, development, and rep. Rep teams are typically populated by students in grades 7 &8 and compete in the LSAA league. Development teams don't have a league to play in but compete in an exhibition schedule which is about half of that of the rep teams. Development teams are typically populated by students in grades 6 & 7. Participants not placed on a rep or development team will then be invited out to our house league level of play. This is an in-house program that focuses on skill development and modified gameplay. 
Each program has a cost associated with it, but I assure you we run each at a "break-even" cost point. Fees are to be paid on School Cash Online as soon as seasons commence. This is to help pay for equipment, tournament entry fees, team clothing, etc. All coaches are volunteers and without them, we wouldn't be able to facilitate these valuable programs. Please remember this and treat our coaches with the utmost respect and appreciation. For all other athletics-related questions, contact the Athletic Director, Brad Dersch, at the school.
