Curro Sport is an initiative aimed at reshaping the landscape of sport within Curro. The school group believes that participation in sport plays a vital part in developing well-rounded learners. Therefore, the team focuses on creating recreational as well as competitive sports opportunities for learners. Current and emerging coaches at schools are also trained, equipping them with the most up-to-date coaching skills.

Curro Cup  

Curro Cup is a new initiative whereby learners from across the country compete against their peers on a national level, in a range of sports codes and age groups. A trophy is awarded to the winner of each age group (boys and girls) per sports code.  

The following Curro schools have hosted various Curro Cup events:  

  • Curro Aurora: Curro Cup Golf and Swimming  
  • Curro Durbanville: Curro Cup Hockey, Cricket and Relays  
  • Curro Hazeldean: Curro Cup Athletics, Netball and Rugby Sevens  
  • Waterstone College: Curro Cup Soccer  

Coaching the Coaches campaign  

Through this campaign, Curro Sport hopes to equip new and emerging coaches with the knowledge required to become skilled coaches in their chosen sports disciplines.  

Dorette Badenhorst, the national netball team’s coach, will host training sessions in Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal, aimed at teaching coaches how to prepare properly for the coming netball season.  

 

Curro Tennis  

Curro Tennis is an initiative aimed at developing tennis players into well-rounded athletes who are technically, tactically, and mentally superior. To achieve this, we have established high-performance centres at Curro schools across the country, which drive cutting-edge coaching and development of techniques. We also provide the best possible coaches to ensure that our learners receive world-class training.  

Our learners also benefit from regular training, planned workshops and the opportunity to test their skills during tournaments against international teams.

Corporate events  

Corporate events generally occur annually and are sponsored by Curro. These events provide our schools with the opportunity to become more involved in, and give back to, their direct communities. Where possible, these events take place at one of our schools, or start and/or finish at one of our schools.  

Here are some examples of the corporate events that have taken place:  

  • Curro 10-km challenge  
  • Curro half-marathon  
  • Curro ITF tennis tournament  

 

Cycle2Ride  

Cycle2Ride is an initiative supported by Curro that aims to promote cycling as a medium for family cohesion, relaxation, fun and possible career choice for those truly interested in becoming professional athletes. Through this initiative, we introduce young learners (and their parents) to their first cycling classes and provide families with the opportunity to spend time together.  

Visit their website to discover their family-centred approach to cycling.
