At St Joseph’s Regional College, we recognise that quality sport and physical activity at school has a positive influence on students' confidence, competence, health and motivation to be active at school and throughout their life.

Sport plays a significant role in school life, and we recognise that students have different interests and strengths. Students are provided with a wide range of sporting activities and opportunities to compete in school carnivals and regional, State and National level competitions. 

At St Joseph’s Regional College, we inspire your child to be active and experience joyful and meaningful competition within our safe learning environment.  We acknowledge the important part that sports can play in the development of teamwork, leadership skills, positive social connections, self-discipline, growth mindset and patience as our students become active and value-based members of society. 

At St Joseph’s Regional College, we want our students to reach their full potential and experience their personal best, creating life-long memorable moments. Our students can participate in the Diocese of Lismore structured representative sport pathway for students (Years 7 - 12), including multiclass students. 


Students interested in trialling for a College Sports team can complete the team registration form located under School Documentation on the Compass Portal. 

Individual representative pathways are managed by the portal. Please follow the 'Register My Child' tab for instructions.

Living on the Mid North Coast, students of St Joseph’s Regional College are fortunate to be exposed to an extensive array of sports catering for all skill levels. We have a proud history of sporting success nationally through participation in:

  • School-based carnivals/trials
  • State and National tournaments
  • Diocesan carnivals/ trials
  • NSWCCC – Combined Catholic Colleges carnivals/trials
  • NSW All Schools carnival/trials
  • SSA -School Sports Australia Championships.

Years 7 and 8

Year 7 and 8 students participate in a range of compulsory activities aimed at developing specific skills such as racquet sports, gymnastics and modified games to develop skills in team sports. All students should have a sound basic knowledge on which they can specialise in the future years. Under an integrated model, all students are supervised and instructed by suitably qualified PD/H/PE teachers.

Years 9 and 10

Year 9 and 10 students participate in a broad range of elective sports choices catering for the needs and interests of individual students.  The primary aim is to facilitate the psycho-motor benefits of social interaction through physical activity.  Students have the opportunity to explore new experiences or develop existing skills in a particular area of interest.

We acknowledge the Birpai People of the Bundjalung Nation, the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which our school resides. We pay our respects to the elders past, present and emerging, for they hold the memories, the traditions and the culture of the Birpai Nation.
