Bodwell’s string of championships with the North Shore Athletic Association and the Greater Vancouver Independent School Athletic Association is a testament to the expertise of our coaches and the genuine team efforts of our student athletes. Bodwell has the benefit of a full gymnasium, indoor pool, and other close by facilities. However, the individual perspectives of our international student athletes are what add richness to the Bodwell athletic experience.
All of our athletes work on the cornerstones of teamwork and sportsmanship to ensure their own success and their teams, both on and off the field. To a Bodwell student athlete, winning is an effect of hard work, dedication, cooperation, and an open mind.
Here we give you a roundup of Bodwell’s sport teams since September 2014. Keep a look out in the summer term for Bodwell’s progress in track and field. This post features Bodwell’s volleyball teams who were arguably the most successful of all the sports teams this season.
