All students can benefit from one of the unique features of Lakefield College School's co-curricular program - the emphasis upon life sports. Life sports are those athletic activities which may be carried on into later life providing ongoing recreation and enjoyment. Activities such as sailing, skiing, tennis, canoeing, kayaking, boardsailing and running are likely to provide recreational outlets for people throughout their lives.
The school's location and facilities lend themselves naturally to an extensive program of life sports. The property includes approximately 7,000 feet of shoreline on Lake Katchewanooka. In the fall and spring, the lake is dotted with sailboats, sailboards and canoes. In the winter, over five kilometres of groomed cross-country ski-trails are maintained on the school's 315 acre campus. Lakefield College School's four tennis courts are also kept busy fall and spring. Excellent facilities for downhill skiing, softball and kayaking are just a short drive from the school.
Life sports are integrated into the athletic program at LCS. Students who participate in life sports are members of fully functioning teams. Teams practice at least three times a week and partake in a coaching program emphasizing steady development of skills and training. Students participating in Life Sports teams may compete as individuals against students from other schools, but also work together as a team, supporting and encouraging each other to reach for higher levels of achievement.
