External sport credits are given to the athlete in the form of an elective credit, which is applied towards graduation. Credit is available for sports which have been approved by the Ministry of Education and as detailed on their website. The Sport Branch of the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development has worked with Provincial Sport Organizations (i.e. Cross Country BC) to identify what competition/selections athletes will receive credit for.
The sport of cross country skiing is eligible for Athlete 11 (UXSA 11, 4 credits) and Athlete 12 (UXSA 12, 4 credits).
