Sport

Sport plays a vital role in the co-curricular program at MacRob. Being part of School Sport Victoria (SSV), students are given the opportunity to extend their sporting ability in competition against other schools at the district, zone and state level. 

The school competes in the following summer sports: 

Athletics 

Cricket 

Softball 

Swimming and Diving 

Tennis 

Volleyball 

The school competes in the following winter sports: 

Cheerleading

Badminton 

Basketball 

Cross Country

Ballroom Dancing 

Hockey 

Netball 

Soccer 

Football

Table Tennis 

Chess

The inter-house swimming and athletics carnival allow for every student to become involved in MacRob’s sporting program. We highly encourage all students to attend tryouts for such teams and to be prepared to attend training sessions if successful. Training sessions vary for each sport, and may be held before school, during lunchtimes or after school. 

In addition to this, students may suggest other sporting competitions or programs in which they wish to be involved. This allows for the school to consider entering a team into these events. In the past, the volleyball, football and netball teams have entered competitions outside the SSV program. At times touch football and European handball teams have been established.

A major highlight of the sporting program is the Adelaide Exchange, which takes place in early August. This long-running exchange involves competition between students in a range of events, played at an interstate level. Teams are selected by the end of May, to allow for training well before the competition commences. In this exchange Mac.Rob competes with Adelaide High school for the Prefect’s Cup.

Sport at MacRob welcomes suggestions for further improvement. If there are any further questions or suggestions, please contact the sport coordinator, Ms Michelle Pride pri@macrob.vic.edu.au
