The spinning room will help our athletes to improve their VO2 max capacity (cardio-vascular capacity) in an enviroment controlled by our Polar watches (top of the line heart rate monitors). Each athlete will have their heart rate monitored during the sessions. The heart is now “working smarter, not harder”. Measuring fitness is a key benefit of our training with a heart rate monitor for our athletes trying to reach a performance goal. It allows us to visually see their progression and track their training and recovery capabilities.
Each of our student-athletes will have a personilized program made by one of our professional kinesiologists. The gym sessions will aim to improve athletes strength, power, resistence and muscular endurance. On top of that our gym will be an important asset for our medical staff to help our athletes during the post injury recovery process.
Our 8.000 square foot gym is fully equiped for many different indoor sports, including FUTSAL. All the installations at Collège Boisbriand have air-conditioning, including the gymnasium. It allows our athletes to train at high intensity during the sessions.
The plastic arts laboratory allows our student-athletes to develop their artistic talent through many different projects: painting, drawing, sculpting, etc.
Sciences are particularly important at Collège Boisbriand. Both laboratories are fully equipped and the students and teachers are always up-to-date with the new scientific and academic novelties.
In addition to the lectures, students will have the opportunity to participate in several laboratories, thus transforming their theoretical knowledge into practical experience.
The outdoors fields consist of several surfaces; one for DEK hockey, one for basketball as well as a soccer field with international dimensions. A large turf surface adjacent to the soccer field is also available for additional training purposes.
Each student at Collège Boisbriand uses a laptop. Digital books, virtual exercises and quick research make teaching optimal.
In addition, communication with teachers, classmates and home (parents) is further facilitaded by computer-based technologies.
College technicians are responsible for the implementation of all required software and maintenance of the devices.
All classes are given in French and lead to a high school diploma from Quebec. Elite sports programs are conducted by professional coaches in English. Scale-up English and French courses are available as needed.
