National Championship Competitions

Unley takes sporting teams interstate for two different sport Championships in December.

The Australian School’s Basketball Championship.

This takes place in various locations around Australia. Unley usually takes a group of 40 to 60 boys and girls to compete in various grades, sometimes including the senior Championship division (open only to each state’s knockout champions). Unley has strong basketball participation throughout the year led by a number of  Unley High School old scholars who act as coaches. We usually have quite a successful Australian Schools Championship competition for most grades and often bring home medals.

The Australian Schools Cup, Volleyball.

This is the biggest secondary school sporting event in the Southern Hemisphere (always held in Melbourne) with over 3000 athletes from 110 schools competing. Unley usually takes around four teams and, as with the basketball trip, we generally do very well and usually bring home a few medals.
