Sports Philosophy

The Sports Department’s philosophy for participation in sport at the various ages is as follows:

 

Primary School (Years 1 – 6)

Students at Primary School level are encouraged to participate in a wide variety of sporting activities. The emphasis is on developing skills and gaining enjoyment from engaging in sport. A FUN, supportive environment will be the expectation for all players. Parents and coaches will also be expected to provide positive feedback and encouragement at all times. The majority of the Primary School teams are of mixed ability. All students, regardless of their ability, will be given an opportunity to participate in practices and will receive equal game time over a season.  Extension of students is given in inter-school fixtures where teams will be selected on the basis of their ability e.g. Year 4-6 Zone Athletics, Cross-Country & Swimming.

 

Middle School (Years 7 – 10)

Students at Junior Secondary level are encouraged to participate in a wide variety of sports. Teams are selected based on ability and full commitment to both practices and games throughout the season is expected. Families are asked to carefully consider all other commitments within the School and activities outside School when planning for the year ahead.

 

Senior Secondary School (Years 11 – 13)

Students at Senior Secondary level are encouraged to consider their sporting choices alongside their Academic and Arts commitments, representative commitments and leadership responsibilities. For some, this is the time to make some considered choices and to be realistic in their ability to commit to sports teams.  Members of the School First teams may be required to commit to more than one practice per week plus matches. There is an expectation that members of top teams will also be available to travel to tournament. Summer tournament dates FOR 2019 are 25th -29th March and Winter tournament dates are September 2nd -6th
