UTS Education

Meet the Athletic Director

The University of Toronto Schools believes that a dynamic program of student athletics is vital to the educational development of our students. We believe our athletic program should function as an integral part of the total curriculum. It should offer opportunities to serve the institution, to assist in the development of positive relationships and good will, to promote self-realization, all-around growth and good citizenship qualities.

At UTS, Athletics plays an important role in the life of our students and the school. Young people learn a great deal from participation in interscholastic athletics. Lessons in sportsmanship, teamwork, competition, and how to win and lose gracefully are integral parts of our athletic program. Further, athletic participation plays an important part in helping students develop a healthy self-concept as well as a healthy body. Athletic competition also improves school spirit and helps students develop pride in our school.

Coaching leadership should be of the highest quality and should provide athletes with exemplary behaviour. Measurement of leadership success at UTS should not be measured in terms of tangible evidence of the victories and defeats. Instead, character, courage, and integrity, are our major objectives of the athletic program.

The University of Toronto Schools proudly competes in two of the finest athletic associations in Ontario and Canada, the Toronto District Elementary School Athletic Associations (Foundation Level grades) and the Toronto District Secondary School Athletic Associations (M3 to S6 grades). Both athletic associations provide UTS with the opportunity to participate in a wide range of interscholastic athletics, including the opportunity to play at the provincial level in the OFSAA (Ontario Federation of Secondary Schools Athletic Association) championships.
