St Andrews is committed to providing comprehensive programs in our three signature sports:
- Touch Football
Our sports excellence philosophy is about nurturing each individual within the team to reach their full potential. We aim to develop athletes who can apply their skill set to a specific sport in a supportive, fun and motivating environment.
Once selected in the team, students are afforded opportunities to train before and during the school day with highly experienced coaches. For each of these sports, multiple tournaments are entered, including the Vicki Wilson Championship, the Queensland Independent Secondary Schools Netball Carnival (QISSN), Futsal Australia competitions as well as All Hallows’ School Touch Football Carnival, Ormeau Woods Touch Competition and Qld All Schools Touch Football Tournament.
All students in our excellence programs have the opportunity to participate in the FitLab program. This exciting initiative provides sport-specific and individualised strength and conditioning programs as well as injury prevention workouts designed by fitness experts.
Whilst it is not a requirement, students are strongly encouraged to play in a College team in available local club competitions for each of our signature sports. From 2021, St Andrews will have teams ranging from Under 6 to Open mixed in the Palm Beach Touch Competitions held on Thursday and Friday evenings. Club Netball and Futsal opportunities will also be available where local competitions can be sourced.
