Sweet Valley offers Athletics as a summer code of sport during the first and fourth terms. In Athletics we offer a range of disciplines including sprinting, middle distance, long jump, high jump and shot put. Our annual Athletics Day takes place at the beginning of the year. This is a very exciting time at our school because all the learners in the Intermediate and Senior Phase (Grade 4 - 7) are involved and get a chance to participate. The Inter house spirit is encouraged by our various house heads. The Foundation Phase (Grade R - 3) have their own athletics afternoon. Each and every learner is included in this exciting fun-filled afternoon. The focus is on participation and fun.
Following the Inter house Athletics Day the best athletes are selected to train and participate in the Zonal Athletics meeting. At this meeting various schools from the surrounding area compete against each other. Our athletes have done extremely well at this event in the past. Some have even been chosen to be part of the Provincial Team.
