Junior School Sports

At St Virgil’s College, the Junior School provides a well organised and varied sporting program. In addition to swimming, cross country and athletics, we also offer a number of team sports including football, soccer, futsal, hockey, basketball, water polo, flippa ball, touch football, tennis and badminton.

Boys are expected to participate in at least one team event each year. 

The growth and development of boys into fine young men is enhanced by their involvement in a wide variety of activities. An important part of the co-curricular offerings at St Virgil’s is the provision of an educationally sound sporting program. Through the activities offered, our students have the opportunity to develop their talents, express their individual personalities and build life-long friendships.

The strong sporting history and fine traditions of the College are built around involvement and a spirit of working together even though not all participants may be as talented as each other. Each boy is recognised for the contribution he can make and respect for individual abilities is emphasised; teamwork and commitment are valued.

St Virgil’s participates in a wide variety of sporting competitions and have opportunities for boys of all ability and interest levels. At all times we stress respect for our fellow players, our opponents and the officials and to have fun!
