SPORTS OFFERED AT EHS

We provide qualified coaches at all levels and in all sports to ensure that success is available to all.

WINTER SPORTS

Cross Country

Cross country is tough going as most of our runners are intimidated by the courses at the league races but with a little effort can overcome this obstacle and Cross Crountry is then really enjoyable.

Boy's Hockey

Hockey is a very popular winter sport choice for boys at our school.  The A-sides compete successfully in the top league for each age group.

 

Girl's Hockey

Hockey is the most popular winter sport choice for girls at our school. We have 6 teams in the league.

 

Mountain Biking

This is a new addition to our sports line-up and growing rapidly.  Boys and girls travel far and wide each week to test their skills on the wonderful courses available around the peninsula.

Netball

Netball is also one of the top choices for girls at EHS. We currently have 4 teams in each age group in the winter league.

Road Running

The road runners make up the backbone of the Athletics squad that goes to Camps Bay every year.

Rugby is a growing from strength to strength at EHS.  The teams have done well in the few years the sport has been offered at EHS.

Boys' Soccer at EHS continues to be one of our strongest sports with all 6 of our teams always finishing in the top 3 of the league.

Softball

Softball is a girl's only sport at EHS. It is very popular amongst the girls with EHS fielding 4 teams each season.

DRUGS IN SPORT

Do we ever really consider the pressure our children are under when on the sports fields?

“Pressure to perform on the sports field is turning our kids into walking laboratories, warn doctors; and the drugs they’re taking could damage them for life.”

An article in the Discovery Health magazine issue 47 highlighted this issue and is worth reading.
