Sports and physical fitness are regarded as key areas for student participation and personal growth at Wollondilly. It is our belief that healthy bodies support healthy minds and that sports can contribute a great deal to the Academic Program. Students at Wollondilly have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of sports and leisure activities to improve both health and skill-related components of fitness.
Secondary students have an opportunity to be involved in weekly competitive sports against other Independent schools to enhance team building, fitness and to promote friendships across the area. Students compete in the MISA (Macarthur Independent Schools Association) competition each Tuesday across an array of sports. These sports include Cricket, Oz Tag, Basketball, Volleyball, Softball, Soccer, Netball and Rugby League. Our teams have enjoyed outstanding success in this competition and the opportunity has paved the way for ongoing champions to represent at higher levels and to be recognised for their talents and hard work. Pathways also exist for students in a variety of sports through to the National level.
Students compete in College Carnivals for Cross Country, Swimming and Athletics. Students who perform well may qualify to represent the College at NASSA (New Anglican Schools Sports Association). Successful students will then progress through to AICES (Association of Independent Co-educational Schools). In turn, talented athletes represent AICES at NSWCIS (New South Wales Combined Independent Schools), at NSW All-Schools and finally at National levels.
Team sport pathways also exist through to the National level for most sports in secondary. As part of the NASSA sporting organisation, students have the opportunity to compete in gala days for sports such as Touch Football, Soccer, Netball, Basketball, AFL, Cricket and Volleyball. Students can also trial for NASSA representative teams in the above sports as well as non-gala day sports such as Softball, Tennis, Water Polo, Rugby Union, Hockey and Diving.
In addition, students are offered a wide range of recreational pursuits on a weekly basis depending on the season and availability. These include Gymnastics, Swimming, Tennis, Kick Boxing, Weights, AFL, Personal Fitness, Bush Walking and many other non-competitive team sports as well as College run activities.
