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 are proven, time and time again, to be an integral part of the development of the child. 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, astro-turf – as well as individual attention from a large number of skilled and dedicated coaches.
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.
