Curro Sport

Curro Sport

Curro Sport is an initiative aimed at reshaping the landscape of sport within the Curro group of schools. At Curro, we believe that participation in sport plays a vital part in developing well-rounded learners. Therefore, we focus on creating recreational as well as competitive sports opportunities for learners. We also train current and emerging coaches, equipping them with the most recent coaching skills.

Our sport offered

At Curro, we believe that participation in sports activities plays an important role in promoting team-awareness, self-confidence, friendship and physical well-being. In addition, exposing learners to different types of sport could help to boost their confidence and develop talents that might otherwise have gone undiscovered.

Therefore, Curro schools offer a wide variety of sports activities. These include (but are not limited to) traditional or well-known sport such as soccer, netball, hockey and tennis, to more specialised sport such as karate, chess, cross-country and eSports – depending on the needs of the school and its community.

Visit your preferred Curro school to find out which sports activities they offer.

Coaching the Coaches campaign

Coaching the Coaches campaign

Through this campaign, Curro Sport hopes to equip new and emerging coaches with the knowledge required to become skilled coaches in their chosen sport.

Dorette Badenhorst, the national netball team’s coach, will host training sessions in Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal, aimed at teaching coaches how to prepare properly for the coming netball season.

Ultimate frisbee will soon be introduced as a summer sport at respective schools. Ultimate frisbee is a non-contact team sport that combines elements of soccer, basketball, American football and netball. Coaches at participating schools will be trained by Samantha Fothergill, the chairperson and development officer at the Cape Town Flying Disc Association (CTFDA).

More information on the training sessions mentioned above will be communicated to schools in due course.

Curro Tennis

Curro Tennis

Curro Tennis is an initiative aimed at developing tennis players into well-rounded athletes who are technically, tactically, and mentally superior. To achieve this, we have established high-performance centres at Curro schools across the country, which drive cutting-edge coaching and development of techniques. We also provide the best possible coaches to ensure that our learners receive world-class training.

Our learners also benefit from regular training, planned workshops, and the opportunity to test their skills during tournaments against international teams.
