Curro Sport is an initiative aimed at reshaping the landscape of sport within Curro. The school group believes that participation in sport plays a vital part in developing well-rounded learners. Therefore, the team focuses on creating recreational as well as competitive sports opportunities for learners. Current and emerging coaches at schools are also trained, equipping them with the most up-to-date coaching skills.

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 sports disciplines.
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.
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.
Curro teams (external entities)
Corporate events generally occur annually and are sponsored by Curro. These events provide our schools with the opportunity to become more involved in, and give back to, their direct communities. Where possible, these events take place at one of our schools, or start and/or finish at one of our schools.
Here are some examples of the corporate events that have taken place:
Absa Cape Epic
Our partnerships with events such as the Absa Cape Epic allow us to award winners of selected races with scholarships at their preferred Curro schools. Alternatively, we often run social-media competitions to sponsor individual participants or teams at the ABSA Cape Epic.
Our partnerships with events such as the FNB Wines2Whales allow us to award winners of selected races with scholarships to their preferred Curro schools. Alternatively, we often run social-media competitions to sponsor individual participants or teams at these events.
