Sport

Sport plays an integral role in the development of Redlands students fostering a spirit of fairness and team building, along with the opportunity to develop individual potential and to strive for excellence. Respect for both team members and their opponents is paramount to the Redlands Sporting Code of Conduct.

Sport provides valuable lessons in working with peers towards a common goal, in co-operation, sustained commitment, in acceptance of disappointment and in leadership. The wide variety of sports available at Redlands enables students to develop new skills, confidence, courage, self-discipline and self-respect.

The extensive range of sports offered includes Rugby, Football, Futsal, AFL, Hockey, Indoor Hockey, Cricket, Netball, Basketball, Rowing, Athletics, Cross-Country, Swimming,  Water Polo, Tennis, Squash, Softball, Sailing and Snow Sports. The school also runs an annual snowsports competition in the Snowy Mountains called the Redlands Cup.

Students are graded into appropriate teams and fitness and skill training sessions are held twice a week. Participation is mandatory in representative sport for Years 5 through 12. Team coaches come from a variety of backgrounds including teachers, senior students, professionals and ex-students. All specialise in their sport.

Parents are encouraged to assist the MIC of each individual sport by supporting the Friends of Groups (FOGs).
