2016: Review
The 2016 sporting year at Trinity Lutheran College can be classified as successful on many fronts; with mass participation, collective and individual triumphs and notable accomplishment across all APS and Non – APS Sports. The College proudly once again competed with pride and purpose within the APS sports system, whilst the culture of excellence and school spirit were routinely on display on and off the sporting field. An extra–curricular program the size of the one at Trinity continues to benefit from the committed and unreserved involvement from internal and external coaching staff. This integral component of our sports program continues to provide the avenue for notable skill development, improved game sense awareness and a strong willingness for students to play sport for their school. As is the norm for any school based sports program, the parent body must be acknowledged for their logistical support and guidance throughout the year. Whether it be driving to early morning training sessions; towing boat trailers; coordinating BBQ’s or coaching our teams – a big thank you to you all.

Beyond these achievements, many highlights permeated the sporting landscape at Trinity in 2016. These include:

  • Excellent Participation: Over 100 APS teams were filled throughout the summer and winter APS seasons
