South Kamloops Secondary is committed to the provision of a quality, comprehensive Secondary Athletic experience. We believe that participation in this program is a privilege of all students and that subsequent to their participation is the acceptance of the responsibilities that accompany this privilege. We are committed to making this participation a positive opportunity for personal growth athletically, academically, and socially.

2020-2021 Year end

Thank you to all of the Athletes and Coaches who were so committed and understanding throughout this year. It was not the year were expecting but we perservered.

South Kamloops Athletics will be celebrating this year with an awards recognition on Monday, June 28th @ 9:00am. This will not be the same as we have done in the past or even like last year. As well, the school department awards will be presented on this date.

Next year is looking better for athletics and school to get back to some sort of normalcy.

We still do not have any word from the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Education, BC School Sports, or School Distict #73, but South Kam will be ready to go once we get the go ahead. Traditonally, we have started some of the sports prior to the first week of school. I am not too sure what this will look like. Please keep checking back on the this website for more information.

The following information is very important and must be read in its entirety.
