Springfield girls are encouraged to find the balance between healthy competitive prowess and the ethics and principles of sportsmanship. Physical fitness and participation in sport have been proved, time and time again, to be an integral part of the development of the child and the Springfield Sports Department strives to ensure that the girls develop confidence, independence, friendships and ability through general sports participation, while fostering a competitive environment and spirit, based around team work and a sense of achievement.
A wide variety of sporting facilities are available to Springfield girls-a diving pool, swimming pool, 3 fields and 6 tennis / netball courts-as well as individual attention from a large number of skilled and dedicated coaches. Springfield will also be commenceing the building of a multi-purpose astro turf towards the end of 2014.
Many of our pupils achieve in sports arenas outside of the official school sports and they, as well as the Springfield Sports achievers, are recognised as great representatives of the school and honoured for their achievements, but especially so for the manner in which Springfield girls are known to compete.
