Sport lies at the heart of our diverse co-curricular offering. The firm belief that academic endeavour must be balanced with activities outside the classroom is at the core of our educational philosophy. The health and wellbeing benefits of developing a lifelong interest in being active are well known and we believe that sport enhances the academic success of our students.
Involvement in Sport
A TAS education includes compulsory involvement in both a summer and winter sport of choice from the school’s offering for every student from Year 3 onwards. Students select from a broad range of choices and may additionally pursue individual sporting passions that are not part of the official TAS program. Many of our students enjoy sport at all levels from group participation, through to representative honours at school, State and National levels.
|The summer sports we offer:||basketball, cricket, futsal, golf, kayaking, mountain biking, pilates, rowing, strength and conditioning, swimming, tennis, triathlon, volleyball.|
|The winter sports we offer:||equestrian (restricted), football, hockey, netball, rifle shooting, rugby.|
What about sport in Junior School?
Our co-curricular sport program is designed around students being fit and active, to get them all learning new physical skills and the benefits that come from being involved in a team. We start our younger students with regular Learn to Swim classes and Gymbaroo and then, as they progress through the school, they are increasingly involved in summer and winter team sports. Cricket, football, gymnastics, rugby, hockey, netball, triathlon, tennis, swimming and much more are all on offer as part of the Junior School co-curricular sports program.
Training is held after school during the week and games are usually on the weekend. Of course, representative teams in various sports head off to competitions in other locations accompanied by our dedicated teaching staff.
Training and Playing
Each sport will have a different time and day for training ahead of a weekly game or representation. A comprehensive training schedule is produced each term so students and families know when sporting commitments are expected.
