Bill crothers school for athletics and healthy active living

The “Healthy” mandate goes beyond simply physical activity and includes a concern for environmental quality and the health of the wider environment.

This unique $36M facility addresses the needs of high performance athletes, as well as those students pursuing a life-style regimen based on a healthy, active lifestyle. The 1500 students attending this 220,000 s.f school are supported by extensive athletic facilities that include three double gymnasiums, varsity calibre training facilities, plyometrics and aerobics studios, coaching centre and physiology labs. Exterior facilities include
an 8-lane synthetic surface track, artificial turf football field and soccer fields capable of hosting provincial calibre events within the 30-acre site. The “Healthy” mandate goes beyond simply physical activity and includes a concern for environmental quality and the health of the wider environment – thus a LEED Gold rating has been achieved for this project. Phase 2 master planning of the project includes a 218,000 s.f. expansion on multiple levels.
