Sport and physical activity are an integral part of the Chatswood High School experience. Not only does being involved in sport boost self esteem, improve communication and teamwork skills and enhance leadership abilities, it is also proven to have positive effect on physical, social and mental health outcomes. There are a range of ways our student at Chatswood can involve themselves in sport.
Grade and Recreational Sport
Grade and Rec Sport are conducted weekly on Thursday afternoons from 12:00-2:30pm for students in years 8-12 (optional for years 11&12). Student, depending on their interests, will choose either a Grade or a Recreational sport each season (the year is broken into three; Summer, Winter and Spring).
Grade Sports are competitively structured with students trailing for the team of their choice at the beginning of the season. If selected in the team, students will represent CHS each week in competitive matches against other schools in the Kur-Ring-Gai Zone Competition. We have had teams take out the title across many sports and are always looking to find and train new players. The zone offers a diverse rang of sports including basketball, european handball, football, oztag, touch football, softball, speedaway, frisbee, volleyball, cricket, rugby union, rugby league, hockey, table tennis, badminton and netball.
Recreation Sports are for those students looking to engage in a less competitive activity, our sport programs offers recreational choices including tennis, table tennis, bowling/laser tag, rock climbing, dance, basketball, gym fitness, badminton, martial arts, fitness training, ice skating and Yoga.
Students are able to select their sports each season using our online selection system, please visit Schoolbytes Online Selection - online.schoolbytes.education and have your DET username and password ready.
