Our Sport Philosophy

A boys' school understands the need for boys to be active and that they thrive physically, socially and academically when they are engaged in sport. Rostrevor offers an exceptional and diverse Co-Curricular program supported by many high-level coaches. Rostrevor has a philosophy of encouraging participation in healthy physical activity and developing sporting skills and team spirit across all ability levels from a young age. Research demonstrates a link between fitness and academic performance and suggests exercise is good for perseverance, discipline and focus as well as overall mental and physical wellbeing.

The camaraderie and friendships that develop through sport are invaluable and often remain with our boys well beyond their school years. The bonds formed on Rostrevor's sporting grounds are demonstrated by our many successful Old Collegian sporting teams.

Excellent Sporting Facilities 

Rostrevor has a proud sporting tradition which is built upon our outstanding sporting facilities including five ovals with turf cricket pitches in summer which translates to three AFL and three Soccer pitches in the winter season. Two gymnasiums with three basketball courts also support badminton and table-tennis competitions.

The College pool is used for Physical Education and Outdoor Education lessons as part of the College Curriculum as well as a training venue for Co-curricular sports such as Water Polo.

Rostrevor's six competition-grade tennis courts have been recently refurbished and the College boasts the Southern Hemisphere's only international-grade handball courts that are still used competitively today.
