Opportunities Here are Bigger Than They Appear

Father Patrick Mercredi Community High School

Father Patrick Mercredi Community School features an outdoor track for running, an infield semi-equipped for football and rugby, and a diamond with a backstop but no field for casual baseball and softball. These fields of play border on the Casman Centre and share its dressing rooms and storage. The facilities at the Father Patrick Mercredi Community School can host school activities, school competitions, and recreational activities, but they are not equipped to host official league sports.


The fields feature outdoor lights, a scoreboard, a media working area with a technical booth, and capacity for 233 spectators. Despite not being able to host league competitions, Father Patrick Mercredi Community School is a great venue to host exhibition games and community activities. Due to its proximity to the Casman Centre, the school’s facilities can be used to support larger events at the Casman Centre by acting as a supplemental venue.
