Sport at Trident College
At Trident College sport is a huge part of who we are and what we do and it plays a central role in developing a holistic and well-rounded individual. We are still busy laying our ‘sports’ foundation but in 2 years we have already come on in leaps and bounds. We provide opportunities for every single pupil to be physically active. This takes the form of competitive team and individual sport or just playing socially. We aim to compete externally as often as we can but our main focus is on our strong Inter-House competitions. With this being our focus it creates a fantastic healthy, competitive culture within school and we carry this through when competing as a school around Zambia.
We have many sports at Trident College or sports that our pupils compete in throughout Africa:
Our Sports and Extra-Curricular Activity Programme is divided into two sections. Our first section will be our ‘Main Sports for the term’ programme and our second section is our ‘Alternatives’ programme. For the main sports, all pupils who want to try out for the different sports teams for that term will have the opportunity to do so. Those who make the initial squads for the different sports will continue in that sport. Those that do not make the squads will have the option of choosing from our Alternatives programme. This will take the form of some of the same activities that were available this year with some new choices. On Mondays and Wednesdays it is junior sports (U13-U15) and on Tuesdays and Thursdays it is senior sports (U16-U19). We have some fantastic coaches in the different sports and our pool of expertise is growing and will continue to grow.
We have had some fantastic performances in sport. Our Rowing team was the first ever Zambian school to compete at the South African School Rowing Champs. Our athletes performed exceptionally well this year along with our rugby team and hockey teams. These are just a few of our most recent performances.
When we compete we aim to win but we win with humility and lose with grace.
