School activities are important in helping athletes nurture friendships beyond the campus and dressing room. On-campus facilities include, two volleyball courts, two soccer fields, a basketball net, walking trails, an outdoor rink and two tennis courts. The campus is situated on the beautiful Ottawa River, a waterway known for its exceptional white-water rafting and kayaking during the summer months. The newly opened Clarence-Rockland YMCA has a beautiful pool, fantastic gym and large library close by.
The community of Rockland has embraced the CIH Academy athletes and their families. One example of the welcoming atmosphere is the offer from one of Ontario’s most beautiful and prestigious golf courses, The Club de Golf Outaouais, where CIH Academy golfers can enjoy a round of golf at a special rate (18 holes / $18) everyday after 2 p.m.
The rich and vibrant National Capital Region provides a wide range of interesting field trip options and excursions, including 29 museums, beautiful beaches on 3 major river systems, shopping, historic sites, zip lining, movies and the list continues. During their stay student-athletes will get the chance to visit some of the most sought after attractions Canada's Capital Region has to offer.
An enriching life experience helps prepare our athletes to become responsible and involved citizens in their communities.
