Sport Selections Term 4, 2023

Years 7 and 8

At SCAS, we offer a range of competitive and recreational sports and activities to cater for students' interests and abilities.


Years 7 and 8 students are involved in a weekly sports program, which takes place on Mondays from 11:30am to 1:00pm. Sports choices include off-site activities held at various locations and on-site activities held on campus.

Term 4 Aquatics and APOLA accreditation (Surf Survival)

In Term 4, Year 7 students will participate in a compulsory aquatics program during elective sport time.


Students in Years 7 and 8 will have the opportunity to attempt to pass APOLA competency in Week 2 at a local pool. Those who pass the APOLA competency can advance to complete an APOLA surf survival accreditation.


Year 7 students who do not pass will remain in our aquatics program at a local pool. More advanced swimmers will participate in squad skills sessions run by the Head Coach of Port Macquarie SC, Billy Nicholson. Learn-to-swim will also be catered for at a local pool.


Year 8 students who do not pass APOLA competency will join their second-choice sport group.
