Provided at no extra cost to students, the College offers coaching and development in a selection of popular sports. The program enables our students to try a number of sports or specialise in a chosen sport, and helps equip our competitive players with vital teamwork and sport specific skills necessary to succeed in their chosen pursuit. This extra-value service is run by our Head of Sports and other teachers.
One of the main outcomes of our after-school sport program is to enhance our students’ desire to be active and part of a community. Sports are known to help kids develop empathy, determination, leadership skills and resilience.
Extra-curricular sports are available for all students from Prep to Year 12 and usually run twice a week directly after school. All students (regardless of gender) are able to participate in their chosen sport.
Current sports within our roster include:

Victory College has a full size rugby union oval with students fielding girls’ and boys’ teams. Rugby Union, Sevens and Full 15 are played. We offer a development program with non-tackle Walla Rugby for lower primary students. The team competes in Sunshine Coast competitions, local schools competitions and Fraser Coast Invitational Rugby Sevens Tournament. We also play rugby league when possible for example at the local Broncos Challenge.
Students can try out for Victory College’s own team – Victory Fire. The team meets every Thursday after school for practice. They participate in local games on Monday nights at the Gympie Netball competitions. The girls enjoy the competitive atmosphere and are great teammates who encourage each other.
The futsal team train weekly in Harney Stadium during the Futsal season and compete in Sunshine Coast competitions. The team has made it to state level.
Athletics, cross-country and swimming carnivals are an integral part of the sport program, leading to regional, state and national representation.
The College has a healthy inter-house competition in swimming, cross-country and athletics, and participation is encouraged and rewarded. Awards include age-champion medallions and runner-up certificates as well as new College record certificates.
Students who qualify from the above sports go to zone trials as part of a College team, where if selected go onto Wide Bay regional trials and then have the chance to advance to State level trials.
Both Primary and Secondary College students are encouraged to be involved in Zone trials for summer and winter team sports.
The Primary College competes in the local interschool team sports competitions and has proven to be very successful with wins in various events.
After school training is offered leading up to competitions in athletics and cross-country for students in years 5-12 to support those interested or gifted in these areas.
All of this is underpinned by the College’s extensive Physical Education program offered throughout Prep-Year 12.
In addition, visiting coaches of local sports are welcomed and invited to conduct training sessions with students as part of their responsibilities as junior development officers.
