Senior School Sport

Tuesday Afternoon sport

Students in Years 7-10

During school sport students will develop a variety of skills that will equip them for lifelong participation in regular sport and recreation activities. The College Sport program includes inter and intra-school competitive sport, outdoor recreational, adventure sports, fitness, sport development and physical recreation activities.

 There are four MISA seasons which correspond with the four school terms and are listed below.  Parents should discuss these options with students and decide on a suitable sport before the season trial date. For students who decide not to trial for MISA or do not make the team, College sport is done in year groups and will generally be done offsite in 2018. These may include Gymnastics, Swimming, Tennis, Kick Boxing, Weights, AFL, Personal Fitness, Dance and many other non-competitive team sports.

 Students in Years 11 & 12

Students in Years 11 and 12 will have access to parts of each of these programs.

MISA - Macarthur Independent Sports Association

Students are encouraged to trial for representative MISA teams in each of the four sporting seasons.  Students not achieving selection in a MISA team are required train on Monday afternoons or Tuesday mornings. Trials are usually held at the end and beginning of each term.

NASSA Sport (New Anglican Schools Sports Association)

The NASSA competition serves two purposes.  Firstly, it provides like minded schools the opportunity to compete regularly in carnivals and gala days in a variety of sports.  Secondly, it is through selection in NASSA teams that students have the opportunity to achieve higher selection into AICES representative teams and then into CIS and even NSW All Schools teams.  Students achieving selection into NASSA teams have the opportunity to purchase a representative uniform from the uniform store.

 Please note that Thomas Hassall Anglican College may not send teams to all NASSA Gala Days.  This depends on student interest and the timing of other College activities.

AICES Sport (Association of Independent Co-Educational Schools)

Students achieving selection into NASSA teams compete at the AICES Championships.  While the AICES championships are tournaments themselves, a team is also selected at the championships to represent AICES at the CIS championships.  Students achieving selection into AICES teams have the opportunity to purchase a variety of AICES merchandise.  Some sports also incur uniform levy for playing uniforms.  This will be notified on selection into an AICES team.  The College will cover the cost of the levy once invoices are given to the sports department.

Note: Some sports are trialled at an AICES level without needing to be selected into a NASSA team to attend the trials.  Students will be given to opportunity to nominate to trial for these sports.

 

For more information about AICES activities visit www.aices.com.au

 

CIS Sport (Combined Independent Schools)

Students achieving selection into AICES teams will compete at the CIS Championships/trials.  It should be noted that students competing at a CIS level incur a trial levy.  The College will cover the cost of the levy once invoices are given to the sports department. Students achieving selection into CIS teams will be notified of their commitments and costs at the trial dates.

 

Note: Some sports are trialled at a CIS level without needing to be selected into an AICES team to attend the trials.  Students will be given to opportunity to nominate to trial for these sports.  Student should clarify the sports for which this occurs with the Secondary Sports Coordinator.

 

For more information about CIS activities visit www.aisnsw.edu.au/cis/

 

NSW All Schools

Generally, NSW All Schools teams are selected at the NSW All Schools Championships.  Some individual sports have separate trial dates.  This information can be obtained by searching the relevant sport on the NSW CIS website.

 

Nomination Process for Trials

Students wishing to nominate themselves for trials at NASSA level will need to collect a nomination form from the Secondary Sports Coordinator in PDHPE Staffroom at least three weeks prior to the trial date.

Nomination due dates for AICES and CIS trials can be found on their websites (see above) and are also listed on this calendar.  Nomination forms can be collected from the PDHPE staffroom.

It is the responsibility of the students to ensure their nomination forms are returned to the Secondary Sports Coordinator at least 24 hours before the close of nominations so they can be processed at a school level.

A large number of sports are not age specific and may be open to all ages up to 18 years.  As a general rule Thomas Hassall Anglican College does not send students in year 7 and 8 to open trials.  However, parents may discuss this with the Secondary Sports Coordinator.

 

Thomas Hassall Representative Uniforms

Students representing Thomas Hassall Anglican College at MISA and NASSA level in sporting activities may be required to wear a representative uniform.  While students are not charged a hire fee for this, unfortunately in the past not all uniforms have been returned.  If a representative shirt is not returned, the replacement cost will be billed to the student’s account.
