At MACC, the vision of the Sport Program is to create and provide opportunities for students to not only be participants of lifelong physical activity, but to develop values for life. Through the Sports program, it is our hope that students are able to enjoy quality and meaningful programs that develop the whole student, whilst honing their skills in the sports that they are passionate.
The Sports program at MACC caters for students from Prep to Year 12 and includes the opportunity to be a part of developmental programs right through to opportunities to be selected for State and National representation pathways. The team sports that students have been involved in at MACC include Oz Tag, Touch Football, Softball, Hockey, Netball, Soccer, Rugby League, AFL, Cricket, Volleyball, Basketball and Futsal. Opportunities to participate in individual sports such as Athletics, Swimming, Cross Country, Triathlons, Gymnastics, Dance and Golf are also available and valued at the College.
There is a wide range of sporting opportunities for students of all abilities to participate in and to enjoy. For students who wish to excel in sport, we also provide the opportunity to utilise sport representation pathways. Students can represent the College in a weekly interschool competition in a variety of sports throughout the entire year. These competitions are a part of the Independent Primary School Sports Organisation (IPSSO) for Primary and Macarthur Independent Schools Association (MISA). Students in Primary and Secondary can also compete at Zone, State and National levels through the Christian Schools Sports Association (CSSA). Through CSSA, students then can go onto possibly being selected to represent at the Combined Independent Schools (CIS) level, which then leads into All-schools NSW and then School Sports Australia (SSA).
Personal Development, Health and Physical Education (PDHPE) forms an important part of our curriculum for students K-10 where students are encouraged in team activities not only teaching them fundamental skills but teamwork, fair play and respect. In Years 9-10, students have the opportunity to elect Physical Activity and Sports Studies (PASS) to further engage and learn about the importance of physical activity. PDHPE is also offered in Years 11-12.
For Secondary students weekly College sport allows them to choose team sports that they are interested in, such as Basketball, Touch Football, Oztag, Netball, Volleyball, Futsal, Cricket, Softball and Soccer. At certain times throughout the year, recreational sports are offered such as Go Karting, Roller Skating, Gym visits, Trampolining, Laser Skirmish or walking groups, which all encourages movement and an active lifestyle.
In addition to weekly sports, there is a range of gala days for a variety of sports which are held throughout the year giving students the opportunity to represent the College. These gala days include:
