Students are encouraged to get active during recess, on intramural teams and on our school athletic teams. Participation on Grade 7 and 8 teams is determined through tryouts and criteria established by the coach. The students chosen to represent the school on these teams must be students in good standing. Team shirts and equipment used by the teams are to be properly cared for and returned to the school immediately following each sporting event.

Cross Country is available for September and October. Congratulations to Cobden's 2013 Running Club that represented Cobden at the cross country meet at Hugli's on Thursday, October 10, 2013. Mrs. Benson and coaches were very proud of everyone as it was a challenging race.
