Beyond the Classroom Education
The Alberta Sports Hall of Fame is a great opportunity for students of all ages to experience and explore some of Alberta’s incredible sport history and heroes. Students will have the chance to see how sports, sports equipment, and athletes have evolved throughout the years. In all the school programs we offer this year we hope to inspire learning beyond the classroom.
Students will be able to use the museum as a new classroom through behind the scene tours, inquiry-based learning and hands-on activities.
Museum personnel are eager to share their knowledge and resources with you and your students to meet educational goals and establish community partnerships in learning. Let's build a stronger community now and in the future.
Proud supporter of the Beyond the Classroom Education Program
The Alberta Sports Hall of Fame invites teachers and students to book your Beyond the Classroom field trip with us today. Touring the museum could be one of the greatest hands-on learning opportunities that you and your students can experience. Students can have a behind-the-scenes tour of the museum, see how things are archived and stored, handle old artifacts, and try playing many of the sports they love. Sport heroes, legends, community builders, amazing athletes and people who have left an impact on sport around the world and in our province are all under one roof, right here in your own backyard.

Students will be led on a journey back in time to discover historical sports artifacts and gain an understanding of how sports have changed in the last one hundred years. Using their observing and interpreting skills students will be led in a hands-on and interactive investigation into the history of Alberta sports and the Olympic Games! As well, students will learn about the important care and handling of our artifacts.
Lasting Traditions- Alberta Indigenous culture has provided many lasting traditions that continue today all across our province and country. Students will discover where these traditions live on as well as explore some examples of traditional sports. Students will also investigate indigenous sports artifacts, important figures and try their hand at some Arctic Winter Games, continuing the legacies of Indigenous traditions
Fair Play and Respect- Many Albertan athletes have achieved their Olympic dreams but not without obstacles to overcome. Students will discover some incredible stories about local athletes that have paved the way for fair play and respect in Olympic competition and exemplified the true meaning of moral ethics in sport.
