Football

Launched at Trinity in 1975, Football has become one of the most beloved and popular Co-curricular sports at the School. The largest winter sport with over 700 players in Year 4-12 participating (500+ students in Years 7-12), Trinity Football focuses on catering for all ability types and to create lifelong Football participants (be it players, officials, coaches or supporters). This is achieved through the development of Coaches who in turn facilitate the development of student ball mastery, teamwork, physical coordination and an understanding of principles of attack/defence.

There have been several students who have represented NSW and Australia at U15 and U17 level whilst a number of Old Boys have also gone on to play A-League, play semi-professionally in Europe and or secure Football Scholarships at university.

Primary (Year 4-6) and senior years (Year 7-12).

Primary years train on Mondays and Tuesdays, while Senior years train on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Your coach will advise on the training days relevant to you. Training sessions occur both during School hours as well as before and after School.

Saturdays. Year 4-12 12 have a ten round season, with Year 7-12 having additional trial matches that are of internal/external nature.

The Independent Schools Cup, Bill Turner Cup, and Inner West Tri Series are played on other days and can include the April or July holidays.

There are many opportunities to get involved with football at Trinity. These can include:

  • Specialist Football Year 10-12 (this group includes an off-season programme that trains on field and in the Fitness Centre).

Tennis

Tennis has been played at Trinity since 1913. Today, Tennis is played across the Preparatory, Junior, Middle and Senior School campuses, and, unlike many sports at Trinity, is enjoyed across both Winter and Summer seasons.

Trinity’s Tennis program is designed so that every student can have an opportunity to participate, regardless of their ability.

32 students per year group are selected to play tennis per season. Unless a student is selected as one of the top 4 players in a year group, they are unable to compete two seasons in a row, this is designed to allow more students to participate.

Training sessions are held during School hours for Years 7-10. For the Opens age group (Year 11 and 12) training sessions are held after School on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The School uses two venues for training sessions – Trinity Tennis Centre and Cintra Park, Concord.

Matches are played on Saturday during competition weeks.

Summer competition runs in Terms 4 and 1, comprising 10 matches – 5 at home and 5 away.

Winter competition runs in Terms 3 and 4, comprising 10 matches – 5 at home and 5 away.

There is a CAS Representative team and a CIS team for top players to work towards. There is also an annual School Tennis Championship for the Middle and Senior Schools, held in Term 1 every year.

Please get in touch with Mr Jeremy Dykgraaff for more information about Tennis at Trinity.

Volleyball

Year-round, students have the opportunity to enjoy volleyball as their Co-curricular sport. Volleyball was first officially introduced at Trinity as an inter-House sport in the mid-1970s. Since then, it has grown to become one of the most successful spots at Trinity. Volleyball is a combined GPS and CAS sport during Winter and CAS-only during Summer.
