Sports

Participation in sport and the role of physical development are based on the ethos of Chatsworth Primary. This is to ensure that all learners are educated in totality and to create opportunities as far as possible for each learner to develop as an individual. It is therefore important that learners are encouraged to participate in sport. Participation in sport is not compulsory, but we encourage all learners to participate in at least one winter sport and one summer sport.

ATHLETICS

Athletics is very popular on the West Coast and Swartland area. Learners from this area do extremely well in competitions in this district. Chatsworth athletes are a force to be reckoned with and are adding value to this proud culture on the Swartland. Each Chatsworth athlete receives the necessary training and the opportunity to move through the ranks to the Boland structures, where they can achieve the highest level in their age group (from u/7 to u/13). 

Our annual interhouse athletics meeting is one of the highlights of the year and is known for its enthusiastic athletes. Chatsworth is also part of an interschool athletics meeting that takes place annually with schools in the surrounding area.

RUGBY

Chatsworth is a school that can boast teams in numerous age groups, regardless of the limited number of boys in the school. This is something that we are truly proud of and we strive to expand and build on our success through the dedication of players and coaches. 

More than ample opportunity is provided for teams in the local league and friendly matches in order for players to develop as individuals and to further their talents.

NETBALL

Chatsworth Primary boasts netball teams in all age groups (u/8 to u/13) and teams play in the local league from schools in the surrounding area

CHESS

Learners are strongly encouraged to play chess. Chess development takes place during the year with an annual school competition.

CROSS COUNTRY

Chatsworth Cross Country Athletes are not to be undermined. Our learners compete in the West Coast District where our learners get the opportunity to compete and move through the ranks of the West Coast structures. Numerous learners have received provincial colours.

SOCCER

The school does not compete in any structured league, however the school only plays friendly games against selected schools in the surrounding area. The school also compete in numerous competitions like the Build It and Danone tournaments. There’s also an under 13 girls soccer team. The school provides the kit (Jersey, shorts, long socks, boots and bibs) to players. Futsal (indoor soccer) tournaments our school also participate in.
