SPORT

There are many opportunities for students at QASMT to engage in sport. The Academy's Sport Program has several tiers, aimed at catering for a variety of abilities, experience and levels of competition. These tiers are inter-house, inter-school (including district and regional programs), and a professional coaching program.

INTER-HOUSE SPORTING COMPETITIONS

Within the school, students at QASMT participate in a variety of inter-House competitions throughout the year. These include the Athletics Carnival and the school Cross Country. Students at these events also participate in a range of House challenges (including War Cry competitions, and novelty events including Tug of War and various other races). These events are very inclusive, and assist in strengthening House ties and developing a positive school culture.

WEST BRISBANE SPORT ASSOCIATION GALA DAYS (INTER-SCHOOL SPORT)

QASMT participates in Inter-School sport in the West Brisbane Sport Association. The Association is comprised of QASMT, Kenmore SHS, Indooroopilly SHS, Centenary SHS, Corinda SHS and Yeronga SHS. The association holds a Summer Gala Day at the commencement of Term 2 and a Winter Gala Day during Term 3 for Senior students, and one Gala Day per term for Middle Years students. The Gala Days are a full day round robin competition involving teams from all schools, and, in many of the sports, the winning team will progress to Metropolitan finals. Students participating in the ‘Optional Sports Coached Sporting Program’ are eligible for selection in the QASMT teams to participate in Gala Days.

DISTRICT AND REGIONAL SPORT

QASMT is located in the Metropolitan West Region for school sport, which contains five districts. We belong to the Northern Eagles District, which includes almost 30 schools from the Secondary, Primary, State and Independent sector.

Trials for District teams take place throughout the year, and students will be notified of trial dates via the sports notice board and Daymap. Students wishing to nominate for District trials must be approved by the Sports Coordinator and the Principal, and in most cases only a select few will be invited to trial. Students must have significant experience in their sport and be currently playing at a very high level to be selected. District trials are for students who are aiming to make the Metropolitan West Regional team to play at the State Championships. The purpose of the District trials is to facilitate students' pathways to representative sport.

QASMT OPTIONAL SPORTS COACHED SPORTING PROGRAM

The Sports Program is an optional, paid program that caters for all levels of abilities and experience. The professional coaching team aims to provide a balance between development of skills, playing in a team environment and having fun. Students from Years 7-12 are able to participate.
