Yarra Valley Grammar is a member of the Associated Grammar Schools of Victoria (AGSV) which provides an extensive program of summer and winter sport for boys, as well as major carnivals in swimming and athletics. Girls also enjoy a comprehensive sporting program through our involvement in the joint Associated Grammar Schools/Associated Public Schools (AGS/APS) sporting body.
In order that we can meet our obligations to these Associations, it is the School’s expectation that all students participate in the sporting program offered as per their enrolment agreement. This, in the main, requires them to select a sport in the respective summer and winter seasons, train regularly and be available for selection to represent the School as required. Students may also be required to train for, and represent the School in athletics and or swimming carnivals.
The School aims to deliver a sporting program that:
There are a wide range of sports available for our students. Summer sports include: Cricket, Swimming, Touch Football, Tennis, Volleyball, Softball, Badminton, Basketball (boys) and Table Tennis. Winter sports include: Soccer, AFL, Basketball (girls), Hockey and Netball.
There are also co-curricular opportunities to participate in Golf, Cross Country running, Canoe/Kayaking, Snowsports and Equestrian events.
Yarra Valley Grammar has extensive sporting grounds including football and soccer ovals, tennis courts, hockey courts, a new indoor swimming pool, indoor gymnasium and basketball courts.
