From our earliest recorded Cricket match in 1921, to the wealth of seasonal sporting fixtures on offer, sport has always been an essential part of Scotch College life.

We strongly believe in the educational value of training to work as part of a team, competing according to individual levels of attainment, and the personal development that the process of winning and losing can provide.

Summer: Athletics, Badminton, Basketball (Girls), Cricket, Rowing, Tennis, Softball, Swimming

Winter: Netball, Cross Country, Football, Hockey, Soccer, Basketball (Boys), Volleyball


Our Vision

We build on strengths and explore areas for development in each student.

Sports participation is built from a solid foundation in Junior School. Over 90% of our students are involved with sport during their time at the College and many continue after school through participation in Old Collegians teams.

Our five-stage sporting pyramid allows students to experience and progress through each stage of development and ability level at their own pace. At its base, a focus is placed on the fundamental skills in each the sport.

These skills are built through both the PE curriculum and co-curricular programmes, where athletes have the opportunity to move from participation to high performance.

We build on strengths and explore areas for development in each student. Each student is guided and supported to make their experience in sport rewarding and fulfilling. 

Physical and emotional safety is the number one priority for our coaching team. It is the underlying focus for all of the sports systems, structures and programs that are implemented by our coaching staff, to ensure that the development of the individual
is paramount.

Our students enjoy an outstanding record of success at local, regional and national levels. At any one time, a significant number of our boys and girls are representing their state or country in their chosen sport.

Further information is available in the Scotch Sport Brochure below.

Sports Academies

In 2018, Scotch introduced Sports Academies in Cricket, Football, Netball and Soccer to develop the Scotch sport offering to include a pathway for our highest performing Middle School students across a range of sports through an academy offering to develop their skills and ability.

The pathway enables us to assist students who have identified potential in their nominated sport to achieve their sporting goals, accelerate skill development for students in preparation for senior first team representation and potentially beyond school representation, provide high quality coaching sessions to extend students with experienced and quality coaching staff and work in partnership with Elite external organisations Flinders University to provide specialist coaching and workshops.
