Senior School Sport

Trinity’s main sporting activities centre is the Marles Playing Fields at Bulleen which incorporates football and cricket ovals, soccer, rugby and hockey fields, tennis courts and recreational areas. These, added to the existing facilities at Kew (swimming pool, Peter McIntyre Sports Centre, two multipurpose fields allow the boys to experience a wide range of sporting activities.

The Peter McIntyre Sports Centre comprises two basketball courts, a show court, change rooms, climbing wall and PE teaching spaces. It is also used for School Assemblies. The Cornell Gymnasium provides a third multipurpose sports area and the weights room.

Through an involvement in sport, boys increase their level of fitness and should be able to develop recreational interests which they will continue after they leave school. They experience the fun and joy of physical activity and meet other boys and teaching staff in circumstances which are different from their normal classroom activity.

For those who have a talent for a particular game, there exists yet another opportunity to extend themselves.

Sporting competitions are organised by the Associated Grammar Schools of Victoria (AGSV). On Saturdays, Trinity fields between 60 and 80 teams in summer and winter.

At different times of the year the following sports are offered: archery, athletics, badminton, basketball, cricket, cross country running, football, futsal, hockey, kayaking, rugby, soccer, swimming, table tennis, tennis, touch rugby, volleyball, squash, and water polo.

Boys learn, as team members, what it means to be dependent on others and to have others dependent upon them.
