School Sports Program and Activities
We have the culture, staff and facilities to fully support and encourage our students to pursue their sporting dream.
Playing sport with friends at school is an experience that students will value for years to come.
Sport is a very important part of the School’s culture and we have built a comprehensive program and an impressive track record of success across a wide range of sports. Through participation in sport, students nurture relationships with a range of people and learn important skills that they can apply to all areas of their lives.
There is something to appeal to each of our students from traditional team sports to recreational activities like sailing and popular newcomers like equestrian. In 2012 we celebrated 100 years of rowing at Grammar and this continues to be a very popular choice.
Our students are very fortunate to have access to many coaches across a range of sports who themselves have excelled as athletes or coaches – most are Grammar staff members.
Our Senior School students have access to a wide range of activities and are expected to participate in the School’s sporting program as part of their overall development:
- Clay target shooting
- Lawn bowls
- Table tennis
Ballarat Associated Schools (BAS)
BAS offers great opportunities for quality competition against other member schools. Grammar is considered one of the leading schools in this organisation based on our strong record of success across a wide number of sports as well as the number of teams and individuals we have competing on a weekly basis.
Independent Country Co-Educational Schools (ICCES)
Grammar joined the ICCES competition in 2015, further extending the sporting opportunities for our students. Being a member school allows our Swimming, Athletics and Cross-Country Teams to compete against like-minded schools from across Victoria.
State and National Level Competition
Individuals and teams are supported to compete at state and national level competition and Grammar has a strong record of participation and success at elite levels.
We have a very healthy and competitive House Sport Program with major events being our Swimming, Athletics and Cross-Country Carnivals.
Community sport is a very important part of the fabric of Ballarat. There are many excellent community sporting facilities only a short bus trip away.
