Burlington Athletics

In partnership with Conacher Athletics, Blyth Academy Burlington students in Grades 5 to 12 can participate in an Advanced Hockey Program, try out for the Prep Hockey team, or select a custom training option based on their sport of choice with experienced trainers and coaches. 

The benefits of participating in the Burlington Athletics program during the school day are that it allows the students the time to focus on their academics and balance the time spent between home, school, and the community. 

Our aim is to create a challenging and supportive learning environment where instructors, coaches and students work together with the goal of achieving academic and athletic excellence. 
Student-athletes receive the best academic opportunities and access to an established athletic program through advanced training in the student’s chosen sport each and every day, in combination with Blyth Academy’s focus on university preparation and academic success.
