York Region School for Athletics and Healthy Active Living

Introduction : Team : School : Narratives : Costs : Images


This unique facility will address the needs of high performance athletes, as well as those students pursuing a life-style regimen based on a healthy, active lifestyle. The students attending this school will be supported by extensive athletic facilities that include three double gymnasiums, varsity calibre training facilities, plyometrics and aerobic studios, coaching centre, and physiology labs. Exterior facilities will include an 8-lane synthetic surface track, artificial turf football soccer fields capable of hosting provincial calibre events within the 30-acre site. The “Healthy” mandate goes beyond simply physical activity and includes a concern for environmental quality - thus a LEED silver rating is being targeted for this project.
