St Patrick’s College is recognised as one of the leading sporting schools in Australia.

While proud of this record the College acknowledges that this is the outcome of sound coaching and development programmes that encourage, recognise and reward participation and fair play.

Opportunities for participation and development are afforded to all students. In adhering to best practice coaching processes all students will have the opportunity to achieve their personal best, whether it is being drafted by an AFL club or mastering a handstand dismount in gymnastics!

St Patrick’s College offers an extensive sporting program to encourage boys to adopt healthy living principles and as a way of engaging students in the life of the College.

The College promotes participation and celebrates excellence. The College has been the educational home for more than 110 AFL players, including Brownlow medallists John James and Brian Gleeson, as well as Olympic representatives such as Steve Moneghetti, Christian Ryan, James Marburg and Anthony Edwards. The College offers opportunities for boys to participate in sports as diverse as lawn bowls, rowing and golf and is a member of the Ballarat Association of Schools (BAS), whilst also participating in a wide range of competitions sanctioned by state and national sporting bodies.

Opportunities abound and are all supported by highly credentialled and committed coaches to ensure boys and their teams have fun while achieving their full potential. Our focus is foremost upon enjoyment and participation – we believe that if we ensure educational processes are adhered to, the scoreboard will look after itself.

Sport Uniform
All students should be aware that the standard sports uniform will consist of navy blue polo top and navy blue shorts and white SPC socks available from the College Shop. House coloured shirts are not to be worn for after school sports activities. The Rugby top, tracksuit and wet weather jacket are available for cooler weather. In essence all teams in any sport except for the Senior team will be required to wear the standard sports uniform. Where possible in accordance with the traditions and requirements of the sport the Senior sports teams will be fitted with the appropriate sports apparel for their sport. For example, the First XVIII Jumper.
