Girls’ Sport - Years 10-12

Girls softball.jpgParticipation in sport is compulsory for all girls at Barker from Year 10 to Year 12.  Girls are offered a wide choice of sports and compete in the Independent Sporting Association (ISA) and local competitions. The ISA provides girls with the representative pathway to CIS (Combined Independent Schools), NSW All Schools and eventually Australian All Schools.

Girls commit to a Summer (Terms 1 and 4) and a Winter (Terms 2 and 3) sport.  These include -  Basketball, Dance, Equestrian, Football, Fencing, Hockey, Netball, Physical Conditioning, Softball, Squash, Surf Lifesaving, Tennis, Tae Kwon Do, Touch Football, and Waterpolo.

In addition to our compulsory Sport, students have the opportunity to participate in Athletics, Swimming and Cross Country. Barker Girls also have the opportunity to use The Barker Bunker (Girls' Gym), this is open to all abilities and gives students the opportunity to participate in group fitness classes, have an individual program written to increase their strength and fitness, or assist them during the rehabilitation from injury.
