Life at Grammar

Sport

Sport at Grammar is structured so as to support the School’s liberal academic focus and not drive or influence it.

Boys are expected to play a summer and winter sport and to treat their School team obligations as the priority. As a general rule, year-round organised team coaching for one particular sport is not permitted. The School strictly enforces limits on the amount of time allocated to training.

The School has excellent facilities for sport. Most cricket, rugby, football and tennis games are played at Weigall, Grammar’s ground at Rushcutters Bay which is about two kilometres east of College Street. Swimming takes place at Cook and Phillip Park adjacent to the School. The boatshed, with full rowing facilities, is located at Gladesville. At College Street there is a large gymnasium and facilities for basketball, volleyball and fencing.
