Magill School offers a wide range of sports and activities for students from Year 2 to Year 6. We encourage your child/children to get involved. Through sport children develop skills at their chosen game whilst having fun, developing confidence and widening their social experiences. Children participate in programs and competitions that suit their age, ability and maturity level.
After School Sports on offer at Magill School
Our successful sports program relies on parent participation. Teams are coached/managed by parents (even friends and relatives) of the students. These people give their time so our students can develop their skills and most importantly, their enjoyment of the sport. Each of the coaches/volunteers must have a current DCSI/WWCC. You can apply for a FREE Volunteer WWCC at the below link:
Fees are very affordable (especially when comparing it to club sport) and cover team registration and affiliation fees, umpires, first aid kits, equipment, ground hire, uniforms for the season and trophies.
