Sport for All

As a member of the SCSA (Secondary Catholic Sports Association) Avila students enjoy the physical challenge, sense of belonging and active fun of training and competing in a team through inter-school and house sports.

Avila teams also compete in other state and national competitions including the Schoolaerobics National Championships (where Avila teams have secured bronze and silver medals), the Interschool Gymnastics Competition and the Waverley International Schools Netball Championship.

With a focus on inclusion, participation and house spirit, the annual Avila College Swimming and Athletics Carnivals inspire great sportsmanship and encouragement of each other.

The early morning fitness club in the Avila College gym offers students another opportunity to get active and meet students from all year levels.

SCSA and the Avila Dragons

At Avila we offer 14 different sports throughout the year, 11 of these are through our sporting association SCSA (Secondary Catholic Sports Association). Aerobics, Gymnastics and two of our Netball Competitions are run through external organisations. All students are able to trial and be selected for each sport. Expressions of interest Google Forms are sent out to students prior to the first trial. Our sports program includes weekly training of at least 5 weeks leading up to the competition.
There are no trials for Cross Country or Gymnastics, allowing all students a chance to participate and be a member of the Avila Dragons.
Avila is an affiliate member of School Sports Victoria which allows students the chance to trial for the SSV State Teams for the sport they wish. Endorsement by signature from the College Principal is required to trial.

Currently the structure of training days are as follows, please note these are subject to change each year.
