Sport

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 offer a wide and varied sports programme that provides competitive and recreational opportunities for students of all levels – from enthusiasts to elite athletes – to ensure that our students lead healthy and fulfilling lives at School and beyond.

Football at Scotch

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.

 

Our Offering

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.
