MCS Sport Programs

Medowie Christian School is passionate about encouraging all students to find their passion and gifting’s to enhance their sporting potential.

We offer a wide range of sporting opportunities within our PDHPE and representitive pathways. We also focus on a number of sport where we bring in professional coaches. These programs are called our 'Sports Acadmey Programs'.

Our programs enhance students skills, attitudes and knowledge to give them confidence and motivation to enjoy physical activity, whether at an elite level or just for enjoyment.

We are always looking to offer unique experience for our students. We have a number of sports that we are focus on giving our students professional training from professional coaches. These programs are placed within our ‘Academy Program’.

Through sport, we endeavour to build each students Physical, Social, Cognitive, Emotional and Spiritual skills. We believe that by learning these skills and attitudes, our students will gain the confidence and capability to join in a variety of activities – enabling them to live active, healthy and fulfilling lives.
