Complete Champions Virtual Reception
Thank you to the hundreds who donated, participated, pledged, and prayed for our Complete Champions Virtual Reception on November 13-15, 2020. Despite the challenges of 2020, with your support, we raised a record $560,000 net to support Spartan Athletics!
Supporting the development of a well-balanced lifestyle for student athletes, that encourages mental health and the discovery of each athlete’s unique gifts and abilities.
In light of the COVID-19 Crisis, Spartan Athletics is keen to provide resources and support to our Athletes, Coaches, and Staff to ensure we may all navigate this new and unprecedented environment as best we can. Below is a list of counselling and practical links and resources for our mental and emotional well-being.
