Sport

While the College does not have a formal sport afternoon there are a variety of sporting competitions students can participate in throughout the year. Sport at the College provides equal opportunities for both males and females, at a range of levels to meet the needs and interests of all students. Training for these sports mostly occurs outside of school hours.

Students have a range of opportunities to be selected as individuals in pathways sports at Diocesan, State and National level in swimming, cross country and athletics. Students can also be part of a team that enters competitions again at Diocesan, State and National level. For example, the college has entered competitions such the Downie Shield for cricket, NSWCCC Football knockout, Hockey and Netball and Basketball Championships, Rugby League CCC Cup, NSWCCC Teams Tennis, Triathlon and Water Polo Championship. AFL and Rugby programs are also offered at SFX by external organisations. Basketball and Cricket teams have represented the college at the Australian Marist Championships which are weeklong competitions held in a different state each year. Basketball teams have also represented the College at the Australian All Schools Championships held in December. Students with disabilities follow the same pathway as able-bodied students in swimming, cross, country and athletics.

The College has a proud reputation of sporting excellence and has won a number of major events at the Diocesan, State and National level. We have also produced many great state and national representative sportsmen and sportswomen. Much of the College’s success is due to the strong team spirit that is fostered within the College community.
