High school sport

At Creston we promote an active and healthy lifestyle. We believe that sport is an integral part of the development process of each individual. Therefore, participation in at least one sport is compulsory.

We offer the following sports activities:

  • Rugby
  • Hockey (boys and girls)
  • Cricket
  • Soccer (boys and girls)
  • Netball
  • Golf
  • Swimming
  • Athletics
  • Mountain Biking
  • Cross-country

The South Coast weather allows learners to participate in swimming for more than six months of the year in our eight-lane heated swimming pool. Outstanding coaching ensures that our learners excel in local, regional and national swimming galas.

Athletics is offered during the cooler months of the third term and this includes disciplines such as sprinting, middle distance and cross-country, 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 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 College is 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.
