Soccer:

This program is an exciting opportunity for Royal Bay students to be involved in the exciting culture that this new school promises to provide. The Soccer Academy will be directed by Troy Harris, a Sooke District teacher who has been involved in the local soccer community for the past 35 years.
  • Royal Bay Soccer Academy is a program for students who possess enthusiasm for the sport of soccer. It is not a program reserved only for elite players within the sport, but welcomes players of all skill levels who are committed to development both as soccer players and as individuals. There is a significant expectation that the athletes involved are committed to working hard, developing their skills, and have an interest in considerable personal growth.

Equine

  • This three-year program will help students to broaden his/her knowledge base as well as help them to explore potential careers working with horses.
  • Horse ownership is not a requirement for the program. We have a working relationship with a local horse stable and training facility where we can offer you a wide range of training and options for those who want to have a horse for riding purposes. In addition if you do own a horse the stable can provide you with a place to stable your horse.
