Our Southwell Sports programme is divided into two categories; Southwell Sport and Southwell Club Sport (external competition). Here at Southwell we value sport and have it embedded into our curriculum time. It is an expectation that all students from Years 5-8 take up this opportunity and
participate in our sporting options.
Southwell Club Sport (External Competitions)
Southwell Club Sport will see selected teams, across various codes, entered into local external
competitions and involved in our traditional Independent School Sports Fixtures (excluding Cycling).
The fundamentals of this sporting option focus on developing and extending athletes across codes;
developing transferable physical and social skills in a competitive environment. These teams will be
selected based on skills, attitude and effort from school trials as indicated in the dates below.
Trials are open to ANY student in Years 7 or 8 who wish to be considered for selection.
Our ability to cater for teams is based on these 3 key components:
-Resourcing of coaches
-Physical spaces for training and games
If these 3 factors do not align we may not be able to create teams.
A Southwell ‘Club Sport’ player:
● Is a positive team player
● Commits to all practices and games and is punctual
● Communicates with the Coach/Manager if they are unable to attend practices or games
● Represents Southwell with pride and respect at all times
