Students at Sandringham participate in the Kingston Division sports competitions, including the round robins held each term and weekly district competitive sport for our Year 7s and 8s. Our junior students have junior sport as part of their curriculum, timetabled to coincide with other schools in the district in order to allow for weekly games against competing schools each term.
In addition to district sport, students have the opportunity to try out for and play in representative level basketball and netball teams in competitions such as the Victorian College Championships, McDonald’s Cup and Victorian Schools Netball Championships.
The sports include basketball, soccer, badminton, table tennis, netball, hockey, volleyball, squash, futsal, tennis, European handball, lacrosse, lawn bowls, ultimate Frisbee, and AFL. Equal Opportunity sports gives students the chance to participate in sports that they may not have access to outside of school – girls can play AFL and boys can play netball.
Students at Sandringham also participate in house and interschool athletics, swimming and cross country carnivals throughout the year, with regular success.
The sporting facilities at each campus at Sandringham College include indoor, sprung floor basketball/netball courts, ovals, tennis courts that can convert to netball and Basketball courts, and weights rooms. All of our facilities are regularly used for physical education classes, our weekly sport competition and our district primary school and secondary school round robins.
Students are encouraged to participate in sport throughout their secondary years at Sandringham College. Sport is available to all students at every year level, regardless of ability, including senior students.
Staff across the college dedicate their time during lunchtimes and after school to allow students in years 9 to 12 to practice in their selected sport for the round robins each term. In recent years, alumni from the college have also returned to coach various sports teams at all year levels.
