​​​​ABOUT THE LEAP PROGRAM

The Leaders in Exercise and Athletics Program allows senior students (upon acceptance) at Catholic Central High School in London, Ontario,  to gain industry certifications and insight into athletics and exercise. The students are certified in: National Coaching Certification Program, First Aid and CPR, at no cost to them. The students enrol in a co-op, gain volunteer hours and job shadow in many areas related to athletics and exercise.  How do the students gain all courses needed for graduation? During regular uninterrupted core subjects! Opportunities to go in the community are met through a co-op course as well as through field trips and job shadowing.

The elementary schools in the London District Catholic School Board are a crucial partner to the program as the students practice leading others in various sports, fitness circuits, and games in the elementary school environment. Under the guidance of thoughtful and patient teachers the students are able to gain confidence leading others in a safe environment.  The LEAP program sincerely thanks the following LDCSB communities for fostering this great partnership. St. Mary's, St. Michael, St. Martin, Jean Vanier, St Joseph's F.I., St. Sebastian, St. Jude and Blessed Sacrament your support is much appreciated!
The ideal "value" to gain from graduating from this program is how to be an effective leader and communicator. Students are encouraged to pursue any  post-secondary pathway of their choice upon graduation. LEAP is simply a  fantastic way to finish off the last two years of high school if you are an  athleader that wants to learn more about training, leading effectively, teamwork,  communication, and the specific attributes needed to play your sport at the next  level or coach.
