Edmund Rice College has a strong sporting tradition of team and individual successes. Sport strengthens camaraderie, teamwork, competition, good sportsmanship and school pride.
The College has teams competing in over 20 sports and we provide several pathways for those seeking higher representative honours.
Whilst all boys representing the College are encouraged to achieve their personal best both individually and as a team, they are also reminded that “the manner in which they play the game will be long remembered after the score has been forgotten.”
After School Sport
Organised social sporting activities after school emphasise participation and wellbeing. These sports are Year Group based and include Basketball, Table Tennis, Gym, Touch Football, Football as well as training for representative teams.
The College runs a fortnightly sports afternoon in addition to scheduled physical education lessons. The whole aim is to promote a healthy, life-long love of physical pursuits. Our Year 7 & 8 students use our College facilities while our Year 9 & 10 students attend external sporting activities in the local community including:
- Indoor rock climbing
- Water Polo
- University of Wollongong Sport & Recreation Centre
Edmund Rice College sporting success is grounded in sportsmanship. From team victories to personal bests, our students sporting excellence encompasses more than 20 sports. We’ve won the prized Vince Villa Trophy for Champion Boy Sporting Catholic School in the Wollongong Diocesan almost every year since its inception. Our student sporting achievements are recognised annually at the Diocesan and NSW CCC Sport Awards Presentation nights. We also have students who excel at sports outside the traditional CCC sporting structure, in Mountain Biking, Skiing, Oztag, Surfing and Futsal.
