Campbell River School District has offered elite physical education classes in a number of sports for many years including Baseball, Basketball, Hockey, Soccer and Volleyball. Each Physical Education sports class will be led by an on-site Head Coach who will be supported by a number of guest coaches, many with national or international experience.
Sports Pathways abound at Carihi Secondary School where athletes can add these programs to their studies:

- Sports Science
