Human Sport Academy September 2019

Human Performance Academy given nod by school board to kick off next school year

The Abbotsford board of education has granted Rick Hansen Secondary School the city’s newest sports academy.

The Human Performance Academy will kick off in the 2019/20 school year with an annual fee of $850 after recently getting the nod from the school board.

The Human Performance Academy will, rather than focusing on one sport, allow students to “embrace the multitude of sports in which our students are engaged.”

A report from school district superintendent Kevin Godden says there is evidence that exposing students to multiple sports improves not just their physical abilities, but also their “love of sport and long-term adherence to healthy lifestyles.”

Students who are interested should email Rick Hansen Principal, Linda Pollastretti, at
