Sports Academy

Medowie Christian School is passionate about encouraging all our students to find their gifting’s and enhance their sporting potential. We provide an excellent PDHPE/Sports program from P-12. Our pathway to All Schools events is through THACCCSA, CSSA then CIS.

While all our zone teams have coaching opportunities, we have selected a number of areas in which our students have the ability to receive extra support with professional coaches. These programs are placed within our 'Sports Academy' program.
