Sport at St John’s College
St John’s College aims to provide an enjoyable, competitive and team orientated sporting program where students and coaches interact to assist students’ physical and emotional development within the wider sporting community.
Through sport we aim to provide the opportunity for:
Our sporting programs allow for individual growth and skill development through excellent facilities, equipment, group numbers, positive coaching and suitable training drills.
We believe that all students under our care have the potential to achieve relative success and therefore enjoy their sporting involvement. All coaches are encouraged to create the right environment to assist their development.
Our sports provide extensive opportunity for aerobic and anaerobic fitness development. Students are encouraged to adhere to good lifestyle habits of rest, diet and physical activity, to help them achieve their full potential.
We encourage our students to support each other through team work and to develop excellent team spirit as much as possible.
It is essential that students understand the importance of discipline and, in particular, self-discipline in sport. Sport offers many opportunities that require great self-control for the benefit of individuals, team and our community.
Our sporting programs allow students the opportunity to develop positive self-esteem as part of the Colleges’ sports teams and coaches are expected to create a positive and supportive environment.
Students, coaches and members of the St John’s community must ensure that we play within the rules and respect opposition players, coaches, referees and spectators.
Success can be judged on the individuals’ participation and enjoyment as a member of a sporting team.
Teamwork is essential in preparing our sporting teams to participate and perform to the best of their ability at all times.
