Basketball Season has arrived at LBP!!

CSHSAA Code of Conduct Banner

Basketball Season has arrived at Lester B. Pearson, and along with all Sports that we participate in throughout the school year, Lester B. Pearson is a proud CBE member school of the CSHSAA. The CSHSAA believes that interscholastic athletics, as a recognized part of the school program, is educationally sound and will enhance the physical, mental, emotional and social development of young people. The CSHSAA promotes safe and fair completion for all students of member schools by offering a balanced program of quality learning experiences in a competitive sporting environment.

The CSHSAA has provided each member school with a Spectator Code of Conduct Banner (see photo) as a message to all spectators to RESPECT the game and its participants. Whether you are a parent, family member, alumni, or a student, we look forward to seeing you at our tournaments and league games. Thank you for supporting our athletics program!

For students: To gain entrance to Basketball games, you must have a valid student ID. Only Lester B. Pearson students and students from the opposing school will be allowed entrance into the game.
