We are a leading foundation school in the St George Secondary Schools Sports Association, with an unparalleled record of being the dominant Boys summer and winter sport champion school for the Zone since 2001, as well as annual Zone Boys Champion school in the three carnivals; swimming, cross country and athletics. The St George Zone is one of the largest in the State, and every Wednesday approximately 2400 students from our area schools compete in venues all around the St George area. Many of our elite athletes go on to represent the St George Zone at Regional and State level, and on occasions have had the opportunity to represent the school and Region at a National level. A number of our exceptionally gifted sportsmen are the recipients of Blues awards that recognise their skills and long term contributions as leaders in their chosen sports.
We field approximately 65 Grade teams for both Summer and Winter sport, and our students have a huge choice , including football, cricket, basketball, rugby league, table tennis, tennis, hockey, squash, softball, baseball, and AFL. Grade teams are open to any athlete, and trials determine which team they will join.
Many staff have a keen interest in sport, and have coaching qualifications. In addition, in certain sports the school employs fully qualified professional coaches. Team coaching frequently takes place before and after school, and enhances student skills and teamwork.
The school also offers a non sport program, which is run by Blue Fit Fitness at Hurstville Aquatic Centre, where it is run by fully qualified trainers. As well, students can enjoy fencing and Summer tennis.
We have a small and well equipped fitness centre at Vera’s cottage, funded by the P&C. We also have extensive grounds for Sport. The school has five basketball courts, a gymnasium, a well maintained oval and cricket nets.
Sydney Tech is organised into six Sport Houses named after former Tech Principals, and each house has a Captain and a Vice Captain. They play an important leadership role in carnivals and in organising team sports for their peers.
We participate in State wide knockout competitions in all Grade sports played by the school, with much continued success.
We promote the strong connection between healthy vigorous physical activity and enhanced brain power which is grounded in scientific research.
