The soccer season runs approximately 2 months in the early fall. The athletes practice 1-2 times a week, with weekly matches. The sport of soccer is considered to be a game of dexterity and a great way to learn balance. The experience of playing soccer provides an opportunity for athletes to strategize and work on team-building skills. The athletes learn respect, sportsmanship, endurance and a love for teamwork.

École Holy Cross Crusaders thrive on being versatile athletes who adapt quickly to thrive in a variety of game situations. This is most easily depicted in the intensely speedy and agile sport of badminton. The École Holy Cross Badminton team consists of a group of sixteen athletes composed of eight girls and eight boys. While the season is a short one, lasting only four weeks in April and one week in May, it is an action-packed time and a great opportunity for player skill development. Categories of play include Boys' and Girls' Singles, Boys' and Girls' Doubles and Mixed Doubles.

The volleyball season begins in October and ends in December. Players are also able to participate in tournament opportunities at high schools around the district for inter-division match experience. The emphasis of the Senior program is the development of foundational skills and strategies that will prepare athletes for their High School tryouts should they choose to pursue further growth in the sport. The program has inspired many École Holy Cross alumni to carry established skills into their High School experiences or even continue the sport at a higher-level club play outside of school sponsored events. Crusader Volleyballers live to learn and grow to their potential! We never forgot the importance of respect and tolerance towards our teammates, coaches, opposing players and referees. Throughout the program, the players build on their communication skills and sportsmanship attitude. These skills can not only be applied as athletes but as every day individuals. We offer a balanced program and ensure everyone is a part of our volleyball community.
