Grade 8 (B League) and Grade 9 (A League) Teams
Similar to Grade 7 teams, we follow the philosophy that teams are developmental in nature. Potentially, our high schools may have multiple grade 8 teams and grade 9 teams to ensure that all students have the opportunity to participate. For grade 8 teams and grade 9 teams, the volleyball and basketball seasons run for 8 weeks during the school year. Other sports will continue to run as they always have.
Junior Varsity Teams (Grade 10 to 11) and Varsity Teams (Grade 10 to 12)
Our guiding philosophy for Junior Varsity teams is that teams are both developmental and competitive in nature, while our philosophy for Varsity teams is that they are competitive in nature. St. Joseph and St. John Paul II Catholic School / Faculté St. Jean-Paul II will endeavor to run Junior Varsity and Varsity programs in volleyball and basketball, if there is enough interest to do so. Junior Varsity and Varsity teams will play in local high school tournaments wherever possible.
When St. John Paul II Catholic School / Faculté St. Jean-Paul II becomes a grade 8 to 10 school in September 2018, a decision will be made regarding whether Junior Varsity and Varsity teams will be on site, or be combined with St. Joseph school’s teams. Other high school sports will run as they always have.
