Sport

Sport is an integral part of Kilvington’s curriculum. Kilvington’s sports program provides the perfect complement to its academic curriculum, offering an ideal balance between body and mind. Feeling strong and healthy enhances all aspects of life, including the achievement of personal goals. As sporting successes are the result of dedication and commitment, achievements both large and small are celebrated.

 

Sharing success in a team is especially rewarding when all members have contributed to the achievement of a common goal. At Kilvington we recognise the benefits students gain from being physically active. Participation and success in the sporting arena fosters confidence and self-esteem, and has a positive impact on all aspects of school life.

Sports Offered

Sports offered include athletics, swimming, cross-country, volleyball, cricket, softball, netball, basketball, tennis and soccer. We have recruited outstanding coaches and mentors to help guide and support our students.

Kilvington also has an exciting and challenging camping and outdoor education program, involving students from Year 3 onwards.

Participation Opportunities

Students from Prep to Year 12 participate in House Athletics, Swimming and Cross Country Carnivals each year.

Kilvington is a member of EISM (Eastern Independent Schools of Melbourne) and is actively involved in swimming and athletics competitions. In 2016, our swimming team will compete in Division 1.

Years 5 and 6 students participate in weekly sport every Friday and some of these weeks involve weekly competitions against other schools within our Balaclava district.

Years 7 – 12 students participate in weekly interschool sport. For Year 12 students sport is optional, but we find that a number of students choose to participate.

Facilities

Kilvington’s sporting facilities include tennis, netball and basketball courts, with access to sporting fields and ovals just a short walk away. In 2017 work will begin on a new Sports Centre, due for completion in 2018.
