Creston College Sport
Creston College believes that sport is an integral part of the development process of each individual. Sport is compulsory, and we encourage the full participation of all learners by offering a wide variety of sports as possible. At Creston we promote an active and healthy lifestyle.
Most popular sports are offered during their respective seasons such as:
- Hockey for boys and girls
- Soccer for boys and girls
- Eco Challenge
- Mountain Biking
The South Coast weather allows learners to participate in swimming for more than six months of the year in our well-appointed eight-lane swimming pool. Outstanding coaching ensures that Creston swimmers excel in local, regional and national galas.
Athletics is offered during the cooler months of the third term and this includes disciplines such as sprinting, middle distance and cross country running, along with field events such as javelin, discus, shot-put, high jump and long jump.
We believe in promoting and instilling team spirit and pride in all our team sports, which has allowed our teams to excel in our local leagues as well as regional, national and international tournaments.
It is important to note that all learners who attend practices regularly, are given the opportunity to play matches in a team, regardless of their ability, thus enabling each individual to benefit from the social and emotional development of being part of a team.
Creston is very open to the fact that learners may excel in sports not offered at school and we have produced a number of elite motor-x riders as well as learners who have excelled in sports such as karate, badminton and polocrosse at national and international level.
