Tyndale plays representative sports through various organisations, including the Christian Schools Sports Association and the Combined Independent Schools, but there is also a weekly Inter school Sports Competition.
Typically a range of sports will be available for students in Primary School. Sport for Primary School is held on Wednesday afternoons each week. A range of in-school and out of school sports will be available, and sports choices will need to be approved by parents before students are allocated a sport. Some out of school sports will have a cost attached to them and this will be debited to parents’ school account if their child participates in these activities. Clear notice will be given of costs for these sports on the Sports choice Form which parents will need to sign.
The range of sports and activities available throughout the year will be: cycling, ten pin bowling, ice skating, cricket, basketball, netball, soccer, slider hockey, walking, volleyball, handball, art group, touch football, AFL, softball , rock climbing, swimming, tennis, and athletics. Note that not all sports will be available each term.
Students in Years 7-12 can participate in the weekly Inter School Sports competition. There are different sports offered including Volleyball, Soccer, Netball, Basketball and Touch Football and in 2018 there will also be any opportunity for the Junior School to be involved. There are also a number of Trials and Gala days for a number of different sports that students in Junior, Middle and Senior school will be able to participate in throughout the year. These events are organised throughout the school year and students are notified of their eligibility to seek selection. These representative sports occur both at school and away from school and will on some occasions require training time outside of normal sports activities.
Students in the Middle and Senior School are expected to participate in Swimming and Athletics carnivals.
Year 6 students will be involved in the Primary carnivals, while Year 7 and 8 students will attend the Secondary carnivals. Zone and State level representation will occur at Primary and Secondary levels also.
