Sport is an important part of learning and life at Matthew Flinders Anglican College.
Flinders College Sports
Sport is integral to the co-curricular experience at Flinders. Whether it is played competitively or recreationally, sport helps students grow in confidence. Students learn through perseverance, resilience, teamwork and leadership, as well as when they celebrate success and deal with disappointment.
Our students at Flinders excel as teams and individuals, with championship titles in many sports, including Athletics, Netball, Cross Country, Rugby and AFL. Find out more about our Flinders College Sport program here.
