Junior School Sport

Nomination & Policy Information for Junior School Sports

Competitive activities we would like to offer for students in Years 2 – 6 in 2023 are listed below along with the probable match times. Saturday matches generally start at 8:15am. Other matches are played after school. Information about practice times will be given closer to the commencement of the season. The sports and activities offered may differ slightly, depending on student interest. Additionally, the School offers Dance, Acrobatics and Gymnastics lessons after school for students in Years 2-6. The enrolment process for these is slightly different, please click to find out more about these programs.  

For students in Reception and Year 1, Dance, Acrobatics and Gymnastics are offered after school. Click to find out more about these programs. Additionally, there are a number of opportunities throughout the year to take part in introductory sports clinics. Information about these opportunities will be sent home as they arise.

Sport at St John’s Grammar cannot function without the help of parent volunteers to coach and manage our teams. Please help if you are able to. Coaching roles require previous knowledge/experience playing or coaching a particular sport. Managing roles do not require any knowledge of a particular sport. The function of a Manager is to communicate with the team, relaying all important information (usually via email). If you would like to coach a team, manage or assist in any way, please indicate so on the nomination form. Please note that both roles require a current police clearance.

If you have any queries or require any further information, please email our Junior School Sports Coordinator, Simon Laube or call 8278 2242

Please only nominate if your child can fulfil the entire two-term commitment. Ensure you have read and understood the policy information below, before nominating.
