Doesn't the Catholic school system in Calgary allow open boundaries for sports? I know that in Football there is an open boundary policy for the Catholic schools, which leads to the powerhouses of Notre Dame and St Francis (which has been mentioned earlier in this forum).

If it's a yes, then I don't think Calgary is much different than Edmonton other than that more "Star Athletes" are collecting to one specific school. Sure the Centennial girls are powerhouses, not denying that. But on the boys side of things, every provincials, Calgary might have one public school make provincials every other year, while the other berths are given to the Catholic schools. It might not be as heavy on the "Stars getting together at this specific school" compared to Harry Ainlay, but if there's open boundaries, then I don't think it's fair to say what's been said about Ainlay when I would bet that these schools in Calgary are having/doing it as well to some degree.

Just asking for clarity

The catholic schools do not have open boundaries.  Students just register for programs not offered at there designated school such as AP or IB.  This way they can say they went to an out of boundary school for academic reasons.

Calgary does not have an open boundary system with the 2 major school division. The independent, private schools do but that's not relevant to 4A and is the case everywhere.

My apologies, I was under the impression from some people I know in Calgary that made it sound like the Catholic system had open boundaries. Thanks for clarifying for me

Just to provide some #s to the "open boundaries" debate.  Last year, Jasper Place senior women had 6 of their 11 players residing OUTSIDE of Edmonton.  This year, I believe  the breakdown of their roster is below and has 7 of their 12 residing OUTSIDE of Edmonton (not 100% sure every location is accurate, but most can be easily confirmed by looking on BA websites) --- approx 13/23 of JPs players in the last 2 seasons have not even lived in the City of Edmonton, let alone the school boundaries in the city-- so a school that already has 2450 of its own students to choose from,  now has students coming from all over the place to play ball there...Although not quite as bad, SACHS senior women have multiple athletes travelling into St. Albert every day to play. There are other schools who have this happening too, just not as blatantly.  It is a compliment to these programs that this is happening, but it also raises some ethical questions and has some people wondering about the student-athletes that live in the school catchments that would have made these teams, but have been left off as the pipeline of Basketball Alberta players continues to flow into these programs. Also, some of the programs that would have had these athletes, go from being provincial contenders to fighting for mediocrity. On the other hand, I understand the argument that a talented athlete wants to play in  top-level program.... I wonder if anything will change this trend where all of the top end athletes travel to a handful of programs?

Here is some data on Calgary school enrolment. It suggests that some high school boundaries will be changed or special programs will be moved. This could affect basketball programs at some schools.
