Southridge is an independent day school located in South Surrey, BC with 680 students enrolled in Kindergarten through Grade 12. We have a tradition of developing well-rounded students with a balance of knowledge and goodness, inspiring students to go out into the world and make a difference. 

We believe students develop important character, leadership, and personal and practical skills through participation in athletics. We believe athletics acts as a means for our students to develop a deeper connection with Southridge by fostering a sense of spirit and by providing them with opportunities to represent their school. We believe that participation in athletics assists students to develop an appreciation for the importance of life-long physical activity and well-being.
