Current Years 6–7 Sports Introduction Program

We have welcomed all current Year 6 students and future Year 7 students, who will be joining our community and the AIC sporting program at our College in 2019. We hope these young men have been enjoying and attending the Monday afternoon pre-season training on offer for Cricket, Volleyball and Swimming.

This training is important to establish relationships between young men who will be playing sport together next year; and gives coaches the opportunity to identify the ability of students in the high school sporting programs to best support their development.

The training runs from 3:30pm–5:00pm each Monday, with Volleyball in the gym, Cricket at the Mayer Cricket Nets, and Swimming at the 50m pool (Swimming concludes at 4:30pm). The last session of this introductory program will take place on Monday 26 November.
