Whether learners have ambitions to become international sportspeople or simply want to enjoy the fun and camaraderie of playing with their friends, Kearsney is the sporting environment for them.


Kearsney College provides a dynamic environment to promote athletic excellence and healthy sportsmanship.

The college is proud to produce provincial and national sport athletes in all sport codes each year.

Kearsney’s vision for sport is part of a broad and integrated approach to well-being, believing that participation in sport is integral to a boy’s personal development and has a ‘sport for all’ policy.

The college’s philosophy is to promote sportsmanship and healthy competition.

This includes promoting a culture of fair play and respect, encouraging mass participation, a code of conduct for on-court behavior, moderating expectations and promoting social, health and community benefits .

Sport develops many valuable life skills and provides important life lessons – an essential part of a boy’s holistic upbringing.

A win-at-all-costs attitude at the school level is not advised.

The variety of sports on offer at Kearnsey include basketball, canoeing, cricket, cross country, golf, hockey and floor hockey, rugby and rugby sevens, football, squash, swimming, tennis and water polo.

Teams are led by highly qualified and experienced Kearsney teachers who understand the college’s philosophy of prioritizing educational, emotional and social well-being.

Professional trainers are used, where appropriate, for specialist training and development of the boys’ skills and physical condition.

There are over 20 other sports facilities at the college, including immaculately maintained sports fields, 2 swimming pools, a floodlit synthetic turf hockey pitch, international standard basketball courts and a world-class SportZone.

The High Performance Program offers individualized programs for learners, which include conditioning, sports psychology, nutrition, integrated sports injury management, training clinics, video analysis, professional consultants, touring and sports festivals.

Whether learners have ambitions to become international sportspeople or simply want to enjoy the fun and camaraderie of playing with their friends, Kearsney is the sporting environment for them.
