Early-Entry Sports

Athletes are encouraged to get involved with our Early-Entry Sports at the FUNdamentals stage (ages 6-9), or potentially at the Learn-to-Train stage (ages 9-12). These recommendations give young athletes their best opportunity to realize both meaningful competitive success and lifelong participation, and are consistent with the official Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) pathways put forward by each sport.

The Green & Gold Sport System offers six Early-Entry Sports, including Basketball, Climbing, Hockey, Soccer, Swimming, and Tennis. Each of these Early-Entry Sports has a dedicated Junior Sport Page, which can be accessed on the menu to the left. All Junior Sport Pages include information about sport-specific youth programming, and how to get involved.
