2. Interschool Sport

 

At Aspley State School, we define Interschool Sport as competitive opportunities for students to represent the school in team sports, where teams are selected and managed by school staff in their sole discretion.

Aims

  • to recruit, select, train and supervise students in team sport pursuits for the purposes of an interschool competition.

Interschool Sport includes, but is not limited to:

  • Friday Sport (Term 4)
  • Gala Days (Term 2)
  • Knockout or State-wide Competitions, administered by either a State/ National Sporting Organisation or Queensland School Sport-affiliated Sports-Specific Committee


Eligibility


The eligibility of students to participate in Interschool Sport is a school decision, informed by the processes and procedures of the District Sport Committee.

Items considered in the establishment and development of Interschool Sport programs include: 

  • operational factors, including available staff and specific expertise

  • available opportunities, including the number of teams available, as determined by the District Sport Committee

  • students’ selection of sports, which may or may not require trialling for team selection

  • school history, traditions and previous practises

With regards to Interschool Sport activities, students in Year 5-7 are eligible to participate irrespective of their age.

In extenuating circumstances, an exemption may be sought from the Principal to seek players from younger year levels to participate in these programs, provided they are age appropriate for the activity. This is the exception rather than the rule and an exemption will only be considered once it is proven that all other options have been explored.
