Message from Sports Administrator

Welcome back to the new school year. I hope everybody had a fantastic holiday break and is looking forward to a fabulous year of sport in 2018.

I encourage all of you to read the following information carefully and be aware of the Sports Registrations cut-off date to avoid any disappointment. Late registrations will only be accepted under special circumstances to be approved by the Sports Sub Committee. They will also incur a $50 late registration fee.


Sports Hotline

The Sports Administrator can be contacted on the Sports Hotline Number 0439 840 776 for any issues related to school sports-e.g. training/games/venues, registration dates, cancellations etc. The Sports Administrator is available every school day between 1:00pm and 3:45pm if you need to see them regarding any school sport issues. Front Office staff will direct you to where their office is or where they can be found.


Summer Sports Registrations

We currently have teams playing summer netball and basketball continuing from Term 4, 2017. Those teams will stay as they are so players in those teams do not need to re-register. Cricket and Softball teams will be re-forming as term 1 sees the start of a new term 1 / term 4 season. It is for a place in one of our Cricket or Softball teams that registration  at the start of the year is required. Please be aware that the two terms are treated as one season.

Please ensure Summer Sports Registrations are completed no later than 10:00pm on Friday 2nd February. This is due to the associations requiring all team nominations by a set deadline.

It is essential that families are organised and take responsibility for the completion of registration forms in due time.

Every endeavour will be made to include all students who complete registrations in teams, however, this may not be possible in all circumstances.

Team sports require commitment so please ensure your child is prepared to attend games and training for the entire season (ie. both terms 1 and 4).

Children will only be able to register and be added to teams in Term 4, 2018 under special circumstances to be approved by the Sports Sub Committee.

Each team requires a coach and manager before it will be nominated. Please consider taking on this extra responsibility. Children of coaches are not charged a registration fee.


Payment of Sports Registration Fees

All sports registrations are made online and registration cannot be completed without payment. The fee structure at Burnside PS over the past 8 years has been set to ensure the long term sustainability of the After School Sports program. After School Sports has always been based on a ‘User Pay System’ and a percentage of these fees contribute to the funding of the role of the Sports Administrator. This position is highly valued within the school and wider school community as we strive to provide the highest quality sporting program at Burnside PS.


School Sports Policy

The school has created a Sports Policy which is provided to all Coaches and Team Managers at the commencement of each season. This policy outlines the opportunities, responsibilities and commitment required by players, parents, organisers and spectators and we urge you and your children to read and discuss this information together. The 2018 policy is available on the Sports Website.  




When the forecast temperature for a day is 35 degrees or over on the front page of that day's Advertiser, afternoon training scheduled for outdoors will be cancelled for all sports.

Before school training occurs regardless of the forecast, due to the milder temperatures at that time of the day.

All trainings in the Gymnasium also occur regardless of the forecast due to the Air Conditioned facility.

A red sign stating “After School Sport Training Cancelled” will be placed on the Sports Noticeboard on days when this Hot Weather Policy is applicable.


Midweek Basketball

The Basketball Association website can be checked from 8:00am on the day of the competition to check the status of that days game. If the forecast temperature is 36 degrees or over according to their website all Basketball matches on that day will be cancelled.

Please contact the centre after 2pm on 8272 2121 if you have any queries relating to this policy or check their Facebook posts regarding cancellations at:    




Friday night Netball

If the forecasted temperature in “The Advertiser” on the morning of the matches is 35 degrees or above ALL Netta & Primary matches are cancelled. If the match is cancelled, one point is awarded to each team and 10 goals added to both the goals for and against. Both teams should lodge a score card for player qualification. Sub-Junior & Junior: If the forecasted temperature is 35 degrees or above in “The Advertiser” on the morning of the matches, all games will still be played however quarters will be reduced by 2 minutes.  

Saturday Softball 

8.30am softball games are to be held irrespective of the forecast. 9.45am games are automatically cancelled if the forecast temperature is 38 degrees or over. 


Friday afternoon & Saturday morning Cricket 

Friday afternoon and Saturday morning cricket games will be cancelled if the forecast temperature is 38 degrees or over. Teams need to contact opposition to confirm as this is a Burnside Primary School policy, not a blanket SACA policy. 


The National Junior Sports Policy states that...

"Sport is a legitimate and significant activity within the school curriculum and should be conducted within the context of sound educational practices as part of the total curriculum."

Some of our Sports Associations have age requirements which contradict that of the National Junior Sports Policy. The school and the Sports Sub Committee will determine in the best interests of our students and school community the minimum age for participation in After School Sports. This will however, always remain within the scope of the National Junior Sports Policy and the guidelines that are set by associations.
