After School Sports

East Adelaide School offers a wide range of sports and skill development activities for all Reception to Year 7 students. 

Playing sport is an excellent way to encourage an appreciation of physical activity, team building and playing games to socially agreed rules and procedures. Training and matches are played before or after school or on weekends.

Teams are coached by volunteer parents who require DCSI clearance and volunteer training.

The out of school hours sports and activities are organised by the After School Sports Co-ordinator in consultation with the After School Sports Committee.  Some of the Sports Coordinator’s responsibilities include:

•                     The distribution of information in relation to out of school hours sports to staff, students and families

                       through school website, newsletters, Konnective and at Assembly  

•                     The nomination of teams, including the organisation of team registration fees

•                     Appointing students to teams in liaison with teaching staff

•                     Organising Meet and Greet Coaches sessions, Sports Presentation and thank-you to volunteers
