MLC has a proud tradition of participation and success in sport, dating back to the College’s very first sporting fixture, tennis, in 1885.
From house competitions and before-school training, to state and international-level competitions, MLC’s sports program offers something for every student. Regardless of experience or skill, students have the opportunity to participate, challenge themselves and excel. In support of a balanced, holistic education, MLC provides opportunities across a broad range of sports so that all students can engage in physical activity that appeals to them and suits their individual attributes.
MLC is a member of Girls’ Sport Victoria (GSV), an independent girls’ school sporting association of 24 schools. GSV offers Years 7 – 12 students the opportunity to play against other schools across 20 different sports in an all-girl environment. Each sport is played over a term, with finals occurring at the end of the home and away matches.
The major sports also have warm-up meets, preliminary, championship and finals carnivals. GSV provides a range of competitive and non-competitive sporting experiences and MLC encourages every student to participate.
In Junior School, students in Years 4 – 6 are able to participate in inter-school sport via weekly training and inter-school matches, and also via MLC’s involvement in School Sport Victoria (SSV) district competitions.
