Welcome to Journey Dragons Athletics 2023-2024,

We are thrilled to offer Journey students the opportunity to play on several school teams throughout the school year. In the Fall we offer a Cross Country Team and Basketball Teams. In the Winter we offer Volleyball Teams, and in the Spring we have a Track & Field Team, Rugby Teams, and Badminton Teams.

All of our student-athletes are required to read over our Journey Dragons Athletic Handbook before participating on school teams. The Journey Dragons Athletics Permission Form must also be signed by both students and parents before participating in any games.

Journey Cross Country

This year’s head coach is Stephanie Croft (scroft@sd62.bc.ca). Practices will be held on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays during lunch recess. There are currently 3 scheduled meets for our cross country team:

  • Monday, September 25th, 2023 @ Lambrick Park
  • Thursday, September 28th, 2023 @ Cedar Hill
  • Thursday, September 5th, 2023 @ Beaver Lake

Start times and course maps can be found on the LIMSSA website:


Journey Basketball 

Great news everyone, we have enough students interested in playing basketball at Journey this year that we are going to be able to start the Journey Intramural Basketball League! We will need to combine Mystical Main and Utopia to create “Mystical Utopia” in order to fill the teams, but nevertheless we will be able to offer an organized league for all our students without worrying about travelling into Victoria. There will be a Boys League and a Girls League, and teams from (almost) each neighbourhood. A practice schedule and game schedule is located below:

Journey Basketball Practice and Game Schedule

  • Narnia, Mount Olympus, & Mystical Utopia will compete in a double round-robin before a championship game
  • Practices are during lunch recess once or twice a week (11:35am – 12:10pm)
  • Games are on Thursday evenings “Thursday Night Lights” from 3:15 – 5:00pm
  • The Boys League will be made up of Junior Boys (grade 6 & 7) and will play a game of two halves that are 10 minutes each.
  • The Girls League will be made up of Junior (6/7) & Senior (7/8) Girls and will play a game of four 8 minute quarters. Juniors and seniors will be on the same team. Juniors will play the 1st and 3rd quarters, and the seniors will play the 2nd and 4th quarters. Grade 7 students should not play in back to back quarters.

The first Thursday Night Lights will be Thursday, October 12th and will feature Narnia vs. Mount Olympus.

Lastly, a giant thank you to those staff members that are volunteering their time to coach our teams and help out with this league! We wouldn’t be able to do this without you!
