Leaders & Exceptional Athletes Program (LEAP) is an in-school Cross-Training course for exceptional student-athletes. This course is intended to provide students with the opportunity to develop transferable skills such as speed, agility, coordination, endurance, power, and flexibility that will serve to enhance their sport specific training and performance.

A student-athlete will attend his/her academic classes with the general school population but will be timetabled with the LEAP teachers for their physical education class. LEAP teachers are responsible for the design and implementation of the physical education program.
