Sport
 Program

“Our aim is to encourage students to be life long participants in 
sport and to be engaged in their wider community.”

NEGS has a strong tradition of nurturing top level athletes across various 
sporting arenas. But more importantly is our philosophy, that all students 
should be involved in and encouraged to try a variety of sports and we 
provide them with plenty of opportunities to do this.

We offer a wide variety of summer and winter sporting activities including
 swimming, netball, hockey, zumba, tennis, athletics, shooting and
 basketball.

For students who want to represent the school at a higher level
 we offer specialist coaches and committed team managers and have close 
connections with Armidale sporting associations for those who not only want
 to represent the school but also external teams at state and national
 competitions.

Our girls are highly sort after in representative teams due to their
 commitment and team spirit. As a member of the Independent Girls Schools
 Sporting Association (IGSSA), students can represent NEGS in competition
 against the state’s best independent schools in swimming, athletics, netball
 and hockey.

The sporting program at NEGS is compulsory for all students and they are 
required to select a sport, to commit to and compete in every term. We 
believe that sport teaches students to be resilient and to work
 collaboratively as part of a team. These are necessary skills students will
 build on and will help them function effectively in today’s world.

We know not every student will excel in sport and that some students play
 sport just because it is fun. Our aim is to encourage students to be 
lifelong participants in sport and to be engaged in the wider Armidale
 community.
