Athletics Carnival

MHS has an active parent Sports Committee dedicated to promoting sport at the School. Our mission is to support, promote and encourage a vibrant Sports culture at Mosman High School.

We encourage other parents to join us. We usually meet on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00pm in the School Foyer.

If you would like to join the committee or go on the sports email list to find out about meetings, please contact [email protected]

Knockout Teams

Knockout teams are formed by the School Sports Department to represent the school in interschool knockout competitions in the following sports:

  • Basketball
  • Netball
  • Rugby
  • Soccer
  • Table Tennis
  • Tennis
  • Touch Football
  • Volleyball

The knockout tournaments for open age groups are held in term 1 each year. The knockout tournaments for the U15 age groups are held in terms 3&4 each year.

Notification of the trials for these teams will be given to students in roll call classes. Sign up sheets will go up outside the Sports staff room. Trials for open aged competitions will mainly be suitable for older students, however younger students with good skills are encouraged to try out. Note that the P&C Sport Committee presents awards each year to the students who show the most enthusiasm in trialing for knockout teams.

GAT Development teams

The P&C Sport Committee organizes a number of GAT Development teams in the following sports:

GAT tean

  • Basketball
  • Dance
  • Futsal
  • Tennis
  • Table Tennis

These teams compete in regular weekly local competitions and train at school (either before or after school) once a week. Volunteer parents manage the teams. An external coach generally coaches these teams and so a cost is involved for participation.

GAT teams are not just for experienced players, but for any student who wishes to play a team sport for the school. Trials are run for selection into these teams.

Carnivals

The School Sports Department holds annual school carnivals for Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics. All students are encouraged to attend and participate or cheer for their housemates. The P&C Sport Committee organizes parent volunteers to help run these events.

Elite participants will be invited to progress further and complete at Zone and possibly Regional, State or National level.

CHS Trials

Do you compete at an elite level in any of the following sports? If so you may be eligible to trial for a Combined High School team.

AFL, baseball, basketball, cricket, diving, football, golf, gymnastics, hockey, lawn bowls, netball, orienteering, rugby league, rugby union, softball, squash, tennis, touch, trampolining, volleyball, water polo.

Local Sporting Clubs

Mosman High encourages students to register at local sporting clubs to ensure all round sporting achievements. Mosman High School student teams have had great success in local competition as part of these clubs.

The P&C Sport Committee arranges a Sports Market day early in the year, where local clubs are invited to attend and present information about their clubs to year 7 and 8 students as they transition into high school.
