HIGH PERFORMANCE TRAINING PROGRAM

In addition to our well-known university preparatory academic courses, GCS aspires to provide its students with exceptional programming that will develop their intellectual, athletic, and emotional abilities. In partnership with Andrews Sports Institute, we are now offering our High Performance Training Program (beginning 2021-22) for students in grades 10-12. 

This academic-credited course will train student-athletes to increase their speed, power, strength, and flexibility on-site at Andrews Sports Institute – for GCS athletics, local sports, and for an overall healthy lifestyle – while also allowing students to earn up to three high school credits.

With over 40 years of training amateur and professional athletes, Andrews Sports Institute is recognized as a premier training centre for hockey and other team and individual sports.  Their state-of-the-art training facility will allow GCS students to access professional, certified, experienced trainers that will conduct individualized training programs to enhance the overall performance of student-athletes in their specific athletic discipline.
