Playing sport, in particular team sport, is a proven part of healthy development. Sport teaches your son to organise his time, enhances his friendships and builds his relationships with other students and adults. We offer sport at the College because it teaches your son valuable lessons about resilience, respect, challenge, courage, failure and success.

We offer a variety of sports in both ISA (Independent Sporting Association) and local competitions. Our students are coached by a mix of experienced and passionate staff members alongside elite specialist coaches, many of whom have achieved great success in their own sporting careers.

We are proud of our Augustinian graduates who represent at State and National level in a variety of sports they committed to while at the College. We are also proud of all our students who participate in our extensive sporting program.
