At Korowa, all girls have the opportunity to participate in a diverse range of individual or team sports, from tennis to triathlon.
Our Sports program complements Physical Education classes, enabling girls to build their skills in particular sports, be part of a multi-year level team and develop their confidence.
Participation for Everyone
You don’t have to be the best at your sport to find a place in our teams. All girls are welcome and we have enough teams to ensure most girls are able to find a place in their sport of interest. In addition to Interschool Track and Field, Cross Country, Swimming and Diving carnivals, girls in Years 5 to 12 can participate in weekly interschool sport, choosing from an array of possible teams. Korowa is a member of School Sport Victoria (SSV) and Girls’ Sport Victoria (GSV).
Girls also compete in House Sport events and carnivals throughout the year. These are lively events which bring the House community closer together and introduce girls to their peers in other year levels. Students participate in School House sport carnivals including Swimming, Track & Field and Cross Country with House Sport matches each term.

There are many opportunities to demonstrate leadership in sport at Korowa. In addition to the School’s Sport Captain and House Captains roles, a captain is appointed to lead each sport team.
Year 10 & 11 students are given the responsibility of coaching Year 7 & 8 Netball, Basketball and Water Polo teams.
Girls in Years 11 and 12 who are reliable members of the team and demonstrate commitment in training and matches are awarded Sport Colours for their respective sport. Girls in Years 7 to 10 are awarded overall Sports Colours for the year based on their participation and commitment to sport. They must be a member of a minimum of four sporting teams in one school year and meet attendance and participation criteria for matches and training.
Korowa has a strong sports legacy established by the many girls who have gone on to win sports scholarships, play at the Club and State level and even the Olympics.
