New “In the Zone” Sports FOCUS Program at École secondaire catholique Marie-Rivier

KINGSTON, June 4, 2015 – Today, École secondaire catholique Marie-Rivier officially launched its brand new “In the Zone” Sports Focus program. This program, to be offered at the start of the 2015-2016 school year, will be oriented around sport, health and leadership. Designed for students in grades 11 and 12, and offered to grade 9 and 10 students as a pre-concentration, it is aimed at students who are passionate about sport and who want to expand their physical abilities and rise to new challenges.

Although the school already offers the Sports Active Life program to students in grades 11 and 12, the “In the Zone” Sports Focus program differs by allowing student athletes to develop state-of-the-art tools that will help them become better athletes. Students enrolled in the program will be able to build and follow a physical training and sports nutrition program designed for their particular needs. They will study the anatomy and physiology of the human body, especially as it relates to physical activity and sports injuries.

The Chair of the Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est, Denis Poirier, is pleased by this news: “The addition of this program really demonstrates the importance of listening to our school community in order to continually improve and develop new programs that meet the needs of our students. This Focus program will help students develop state-of-the-art tools in order to become better athletes, while learning to achieve a balance in their own lives and to work as a team.”

“The need for a new sports program at the school was identified by both the students and the parents. It was essential for us to offer a program that focused on health and well-being as well as physical activity and leadership,” said Judith Sincennes, Principal of École secondaire catholique Marie-Rivier. “The program can be tailored to students based on their skill level; it meets their current needs, pushes them to excel, and encourages a balanced lifestyle on a day-to-day basis.”

École secondaire catholique Marie-Rivier offers the regular school program from grades 7 to 12, as well as a Specialist High Skills Major in Health, the Sports Active Life program, and now the “In the Zone” Sports FOCUS Program.

Together for
success and well-being of each student
