Sport for all

Sport at Prince Alfred College is an essential part of our co-curricular offering. Our extensive sports program allows our boys to face challenges, build team spirit, strengthen their bodies and achieve individual and team goals.

From Reception to Year 12, each boy has the chance to learn sporting skills and discover which game best suits them. Our Reception to Year 3 boys enjoy a series of sports sampling afternoons, exposing them to new skills and sporting experiences.  In Years 4 to 12, our boys are encouraged to take on a summer and winter sport where they can master their techniques, build friendships on the sporting field and experience both the joy of victory and the graciousness of defeat. For some boys, their experience of sports at Prince Alfred College is the start of an elite sporting career.
