These competitions generally run for a full week, and are run in term. They are open to Year 5 and 6 students. Students need to register for trials and, if successful, will be selected for the City South team. District teams include boys and girls soccer, netball, boys and girls Australian football, boys and girls touch football, boys and girls cricket, and boys and girls basketball. More information will be provided in newsletters as the trials for various events come up.
Knock-out teams are selected for Mitcham Primary School and compete against teams in all districts, on a knock-out basis. Team trials are held within the school for knock-out teams. Year 5 and 6 students can trial but priority is given to Year 6 students if players are of similar ability. Mitcham Primary School is registered in the boys and girls soccer, football, and netball knock-out competitions. These teams are run within the school and require a manager and coach to go ahead. More information will be provided in newsletters as the trials for various events come up.
