Linden Park Primary School offers a range of Out of Hours School Sport and SAPSASA opportunities for students to enhance their schooling experience.

The school encourages a healthy and active lifestyle and sport is a unique way of contributing to this.

We value the opportunity for ALL students to participate in Out of Hours School Sport, regardless of ability. Out of Hours School Sport provides an opportunity to develop sport, social and leadership skills, friendships, teamwork, patience, self-confidence and discipline.

The Role and Requirements of Out of Hours Sport

The school supports Out of School Hours sporting activities to assist in achieving the above objective. We hope that for students, being part of a school sporting team will:

  • assist them in maintaining physical fitness and gaining a healthy attitude towards an active way of life;
  • provide them with the opportunity to increase their levels of performance of skills learned;
  • instil a sense of commitment – to the team, to practice and to the coach;
  • encourage the demonstration of good leadership and fair play;
  • generate an appreciation of the benefits of practice; and
  • reinforce the virtues of teamwork.

While competitive by nature, school sport in general should also be a satisfying and successful experience for the less competitive student. The level of competition should be appropriate to the age and stage of development of the individual. Most Out of Hours School Sports competitions are not played for trophies and effort is made to have teams of the same level of ability competing against each other. The emphasis is on participation and ensuring that where possible, girls and boys are given equal opportunities to participate.

The Out of Hours Sports Program relies heavily on parents/caregivers to coach, train and manage teams and in certain circumstances officiate activities and the equitable sharing of these small burdens can be the hallmark of a successful student sports experience. We therefore target maximum parental participation and require the nomination of both a coach and team manager before a sporting team can take the field.
