The purpose of our sports program is to strengthen our Catholic community, be a source of pride for schools, and an avenue for talented students and staff to enhance their learning outside of the classroom.

– Damien Kerr, Manager of Sport

At Sydney Catholic Schools, we have a strong belief that sport is for everybody, not just for the elite athlete. We offer an inclusive variety of sports for students to enjoy in both competitive and non-competitive settings. These sports opportunities are open to all students, of all ages and abilities.

Our students are given the opportunity to participate in sports against other schools in the Archdiocese of Sydney, as well as, in some competitions against other schools across New South Wales. Talented students are provided with the opportunity to trial for higher level representation that may then lead to state and national competitions. These representative pathways ensure that students with talent are identified and offered the opportunity to enhance their ability through development camps, further training and competition.

In 2022, a primarily geographical Conference system for sport was implemented. In most sports, students played within their Conference, with the winners of each conference sport playing against each other to determine a Sydney Champion in the given sport.

Playing within conferences allows for alignment in sports, and assists with venue selection and travel.
