Trillium "Try Day" Program at Marymount Academy

Grade 7 Marymount Academy student Shelby Craig finds a unique way to block the goal during her team's turn at Floorball.

May 4, 2010 - On Monday, May 3, 2010 grade 7 and 8 students at Marymount Academy kicked off Catholic Education Week with a Trillium "Try Day" program. The day-long Floorball Tournament has been funded through a campaign from OFSAA called the Trillium "Try Day" School Program, supported by the Ontario Trillium Foundation. Through this program, OFSAA grants up to $800 for schools to implement new or non-traditional sporting events or physical activities into the physical education program at the school. The grant money allows schools to purchase equipment, resource materials, clinics, facility rental and transportation for programs that are new to the school and students. This is a great opportunity to help motivate students toward incorporating physical activity into their lifestyle, in the hopes of producing healtheir, more active young people and adults.
Marymount Academy was selected to be a part of this "Try Day" school program for the 2009/2010 school year. The new sporting event that will be conducted is Floorball, which is a combination of hockey and soccer, the 2 most popular sports in Canada. Floorball is a fun,quick, and active sport that provides a great workout in a friendly environment. Cassandra MacGregor, Vice Principal of the school said that it was a great opportunity for the students to develop team spirit. "As well, it is a great way for the students to try out a new sport while getting their daily physical activity." said MacGregor.
