Green & Gold Athlete Academy

The Green & Gold Athlete Academy is a partnership between the University of Alberta, Golden Bears and Pandas Athletics and Vimy Ridge Academy dedicated to developing high school student-athletes with the potential to compete at the post-secondary level and beyond. To this end, we are pleased to offer a comprehensive program that maximizes both athletic and academic development. Athlete Academy students will attend Vimy Ridge Academy during the morning to complete core academic courses. Academy training will take place in University of Alberta facilities during the afternoon from Monday to Thursday with Friday afternoon reserved for a teacher-supervised study hall at Vimy Ridge Academy. The curriculum will include sport-specific training, sport conditioning, mental training and academic sessions. Participants will take part in small training groups in Curling (male and female), Hockey (female) and Rugby (male and female) designed to build technical and tactical skills through instruction led by experienced coaches. Academic credits will be offered in Physical Education and Career and Technology Studies.
