Athletics

At West Island College Athletics are a very important part of the student experience. Over 65% of our students play on at least one of our 50 competitive teams across 15 sports. At the centre of our Athletics program is the student-athlete. Our athletes are given the tools and support to meet all of their academic requirements while maintaining a strong commitment to their sports team.

Students who participate in Athletics at WIC will be:

  • Exposed to a multitude of sports
  • Given the opportunity to travel and attend a variety of tournaments at all age categories
  • Mentored by an elite coaching staff
  • Exposed to the core values of discipline, hard work, teamwork and responsibility
  • Given the tools and support to meet all academic requirements while maintaining a strong commitment to their Athletics team.

“The most important thing for us as educators and coaches is that our athletes feel challenged on the playing field and that they are not only able to grow in their sport but also as people while participating in our program.” 

– Mr. Chris Merritt,  Athletics Coordinator
