We encourage students to participate in a variety of sports whilst at Botany Downs Secondary College.

As a sports department we endeavour to offer a large number of sporting codes to suit all students. If a particular sport is not offered, we will attempt to provide an opportunity for that student to represent BDSC in that sport.

Sports is offered all year round with Summer Sport being played in Terms 1 and 4, and Winter Sport in Terms 2 and 3.

Sporting Events

Every year Botany Downs Secondary College offers three college wide events that every student is expected to compete in. These events are Athletics, Swimming Sports and Cross Country. All three events are held in the first half of the year. Students that excel in any of these three events have the opportunity to represent their college at the regional and national events.

Our Annual Sports Awards dinner is held later in the year. This is a great opportunity for the sports department to recognise our top teams, coaches, managers and individual students who have represented the college. Our big sporting codes also have an individual prize-giving where they present awards for all teams.

Picnic day is a fun event held for just year 9 and 10 students in the last week of college.
