How can I get my child involved in After School Sport?

· Firstly, attend information sessions that are offered for parents at the beginning of each school year, specific to Sport.

· Read the informative Sports Update emails sent home to all families. These emails promote upcoming events, student achievement and Sports reports.

· Students and parents are notified when the Summer and Winter season “Sport Registration” process can be accessed via this website and via email. The registration process is completed online. Talk to your child about what sports they would prefer to do and simply complete all sections of the online registration by the date provided. Payments are compulsary and are to be made as part of the registration process online.

What time commitment will it require throughout the season?

All sports teams traditionally have one training session per week. Matches are held on weeknights for Basketball, Netball (Summer Only) and Hockey/Minkey. Matches are held on Saturday mornings for Cricket, Softball, Netball (Winter Only), Football and Soccer.

Training and match programs are distributed at the beginning of the season, posted on the Sports Notice Board located outside of the staff room and made available on this Schools Website in the Sport Specific web pages.


Sports Delegates are assigned to every After School Sport at Burnside Primary School. It is the Delegates responsibility to ensure the following takes place:

· Successful formation of teams within the particular Sport

· Reports to the Sport Sub Committee at every meeting.

· Liaises with the school Sports Administrator.

· Attends meetings for that particular sport.

· Is informed of and resolves any issues relating to that particular sport.

The Sports Delegate has a large responsibility to ensure that sport is running smoothly and all issues are dealt with and resolved at the earliest possible convenience.

Sports Presentations at Burnside Primary School

Burnside Primary School and the Sports Sub Committee holds a Sports Presentation event at the conclusion of each season for all teams who have been part of our After School Sports program. The presentation event includes:

· Players will be awarded a participation certificate

· We endeavour to interview one or more guest speakers.

· Coaches and managers will be acknowledged for their efforts

The Sports Presentation is always a fantastic event to conclude a season of After School Sport and is extremely well attended.

Sport Presentation invitations are sent home two – three weeks prior to the Sport Presentation via letter. Look out for these closer to Presentation events.

Can I get involved as a parent?

Yes!!! After School Sport relies on volunteer parents who opt to coach or manage the team their child is playing in. As part of the Sports Registration process there is a section which asks the parents/caregivers if they would be interested in coaching or managing the team. Simply click yes on the form by the due date provided.

If coaches can not be sourced from within our parent body, paid coaches will be advertised for and parents will be invoiced for this at the conclusion of the season if a suitable coach is found. We support Coaches by offering the opportunity to attend coaching courses or provided coaching manuals for specific sports. We are not always successful in sourcing paid coaches and in these cases teams are not to be nominated for that season.

After School Sports Teams must have a coach and manager in place for the teams to be nominated.
