Boys Sport

Current and new Year 6 Sports Introduction Program

We have welcomed all current Year 6 students and future Year 7 students who will join our College community and AIC sporting program in 2018.

Hopefully, these young men have enjoyed attending our Monday afternoon pre-season trainings for cricket, volleyball and swimming. This training is important to establish relationships between young men who will play sport together next year and also gives coaches an opportunity to identify the ability of students in the high school sporting programs so that they can best support their development.

Trainings run from 3:30–5:00pm 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 27 November.

As part of our AIC pre-season swimming preparations, a Fitness Squad has commenced sessions in the 50m pool. All swimmers are welcome to join this squad’s training on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 3:30–4:30pm.

These training sessions will act as pre-season AIC Swimming training and are open to all Years 7–12 boys throughout Term 4 and for the duration of the AIC Swimming season in Term 1. Please be reminded that this is swimming training and boys must be able to confidently complete multiple laps of the 50m pool in the four strokes.
