Being involved in physical activity is a fundamental aspect of the Korowa experience for each student. It adds to a sense of belonging and pride for the school whilst enriching the individuals’ physical, social and emotional literacy. Supported by an extensive House Sport offering for all students at Korowa, the opportunities for students to use world class facilities, exceptional equipment and be coached by some of the very best ensure that all students, irrelevant of skill level will take something out of their sporting experiences.

Korowa Sporting Clubs

Korowa Basketball

Korowa Basketball Club is for students in Years 1 – 10 who are eager to develop and excel their basketball skills. Playing in the Waverley Basketball Association on a Saturday, members of the basketball program train weekly in the school’s Roslyn Otzen Sports & Wellbeing Centre and are coached by a group qualified basketball coaches. Inclusive of students of all abilities, Korowa Basketball is an opportunity for students to develop friendships all whilst participating in physical activity. For students in Prep, Learn to Ball is a tailor made opportunity that occurs during lunchtime to build the introductory fundamentals of the game in preparation for their first season in Year 1.

Korowa Netball

Students from Years 4–12 can join the Korowa Netball Club. The club offers all students of any ability the opportunity to participate in a safe, inclusive, and enjoyable environment. All teams train once per week and are supported by experienced coaches who work to meet each participant’s goals. Teams are involved in the Autumn and Spring WDNA Netball competitions, playing against many local schools and associated clubs.

The club also offers regular holiday clinics where interested students can extend their skill acquisition and develop further friendships across year levels.

Korowa Rowing

Students can join the Korowa Rowing Club in Years 8 -12. Learn to Row takes place in Term 3 for Year 8 students and is designed to introduce the sport and a variety of skills to all interested students. The program will also accept new students in older year levels.

After participating in Learn to Row, students can join the Squad Rowing Program and train regularly throughout Term 1 & 4. All Korowa crews compete in Victorian regattas including the Head of the School Girls Regatta held annually in March.  Rowing involves developing high levels of technical and physical skills and relies on outstanding teamwork for crews to succeed. Rowers learn to be organised as the training sessions are often before school. The team nature of the sport makes our rowers accountable, and the friendships formed in rowing are often strong.

Korowa Snowsports 

The Korowa Snowsports Club provides students from Prep – Year 12 the opportunity to participate in alpine sports with weekly dryland in the middle terms to support skill development. Building toward the Victorian Interschool Championships, the Korowa Race weekend at Mt Buller gives students an on-mountain experience and promotes development in downhill skiing and snowboarding. There is a practice time trial, race coaching sessions and an age group race on the Sunday afternoon. Whilst this opportunity requires students to be able to safely stop and navigate blue runs, new families to the snow are encouraged to time their weekend at the snow and engage socially whilst building the fundamental skills privately.
