Athletics plays a key role in the Selcourt community and beyond. It is a front door and foundation to many of the sports done at Selcourt Primary and has a great value in our community, and that is why we take it very seriously at our school.
Athletics takes place in the first term of every school year with our annual Inter-House Athletics taking place in the first month where we identify our best performing athletes and take them through the stage of development from Grade 1 right through to Grade 7. From there on we expose the athletes to competing against our neighbouring schools and also schools from around Benoni, Boksburg and Germiston.
We aspire not just to be the best in Springs, but also in our district and further. We also take part in our yearly Inter-primary School meeting, where we compete against six other schools and our athletes always strive to do their best on the track.
Selcourt Primary is also looking into exposing our athletes to field events in the future with the support of our principal, Mr G Mons, we believe that Selcourt Primary will definitely be a school to be reckoned with in the future.
The coaching staff is as follows:
Mr S Mons - Head Coach
