Calrossy has a long tradition of nurturing elite athletes in various sports but beyond that the School believes sport should be an integral part of the lives of all our students.
Calrossy believes students should be encouraged to try and develop skills across a wide range of sports, participating at whole school, team and individual levels. The school believes an ability to participate, a healthy competitive spirit and teamwork skills are essential elements in the development of well-balanced young men and women.
Importantly, it also gives the opportunity for our students to put the School’s values of inclusiveness, resilience, selflessness and integrity into practice. Calrossy fields teams in more than a dozen local competitions, from waterpolo, basketball, oztag, tennis, futsal, football, hockey, rugby union, cricket and netball. Students also have access to local clubs for other competitions, coaching and representative opportunities.
As part of the Hunter Region of Independent Schools our students have pathways to compete in the Combined Independent Schools, New South Wales All Schools and School Sport Australia, again in 26 different sports. A number of talented Calrossy students are awarded places at the Northern Inland Academy of Sport (NIAS) where they have opportunities to further develop their skills
