Oxley College has a sporting programme for our Junior School that is proving very popular. We are delighted to be offering a range of sports to our young students including:
|Water Polo||Running Club||Swimming Training|
Prior to the commencement of each sporting season (Summer and Winter) students will receive a Sports booklet outlining the upcoming sports being offered. Included in the Sports booklet is a form that families will complete and submit to the College, containing their preferred choice/s. All submissions will be collated and families contacted regarding placements and teams. Of course, the viability of running Oxley College teams is dependent on participating student numbers and in the event that students cannot be placed into a team, families will be notified in a timely manner in order that they may explore direct registration with a local sporting association.
Alongside the regular physical activity in class, a comprehensive range of team and individual sports reflects Oxley’s commitment to developing the physical growth of students and those personal and affective aspects of human development.
During years 7 to 10, skills and fitness are taught within the Physical Education and Health programmes and all students participate in sports lessons every week. From their team sports, students learn loyalty, co-operation and responsibility. As a founding member of the Independent Sporting Association (ISA) competition, the College has sought to uphold the principle of healthy competition where games are played in the spirit which reflects a positive and healthy approach to sport among schools of similar culture. The College organises transport for away games and hospitality complements the sporting competition at home.
Boys can join teams to play Cricket, Basketball, Football, Rugby Union and Tennis. Girls compete in Hockey, Softball, Football, Netball, Basketball and Tennis. Annual competitions in Athletics, Swimming and Cross-Country are part of the ISA programme.
The College facilitates Equestrian and Snowsports teams and also participates in the local Water Polo competition.

This information will be published on the website each week by Tuesday afternoon. For further Oxley College Sports Information, please contact the Sports Administrator.
The Sports Programme offered at Oxley is broad and exciting, and encourages each student to develop a full range of personal, interpersonal and team skills. The programmes challenge each student to respect themselves and to respect others.
It is an expectation that every student in years 7 – 12 participates actively in the College co-curricular programme and this includes committing to at least one ISA team sport, either Summer and/or Winter, per year. Students are permitted to play two seasons.
We would appreciate that all students understand the commitment they are making to the entire Sports Programme at Oxley College.
This commitment includes:
Reasons for absence from Training/Saturday Sport: (correspondence must be made by parents)
It is an expectation that prior to a game/training, coaches are made aware of any students who will not be playing or training.
Email addresses for staff coaches are located on our Staff pages. External coaches may be contacted via the Sports Administrator and/or Sports Coordinator.
