When some people think about TFS, they think academics. The truth is athletics are also integral to student life at TFS.
No matter the age or interest, we want our students to be vigorous and engaged, in body and mind. We aspire for all of our students to find their athletic home at TFS.
Indoors and out, athletic activity is constant: on our regulation-sized Play & Sports Field and in the 25-metre swimming pool, or in the gymnasia found at all four of our branches.
Physical and Health Education are part of the regular curriculum up to Grade 9 (Level II), after which it becomes optional. Recreational and co-curricular activities complement this strong program and are a part of daily life, whether it’s lunchtime floor hockey at the Junior School, a rock-climbing workshop for students in La p’tite école, soccer skills on the playground in Mississauga or student-staff sports matches at the Senior School.
Our competitive sports program encompasses more than 50 teams across both campuses, from Grade 4 and up. Teams usually practise twice weekly and play against other independent schools. All competitive teams at TFS are called the Cougars. In fact, the Cougar athletic logo sits proudly in centre field on our Play & Sports Field on the Toronto campus.
TFS is a member of the provincial Conference of Independent Schools Athletic Association (CISAA) and competes for championships in a wide variety of sports. One look at the banners lining our gym walls tells you just how much students care about sports at our school.
TFS' West Campus students compete mainly in competitions organized by the Private School Athletic Association (PSAA) in Peel region.
As well, a partnership with Zodiac Swim School enables TFS to offer access to a comprehensive program of after-school swimming instruction on the Toronto campus.
