3. Use the bounceback sms system.

Welcome to the Danebank Sports site. We look forward to working in collaboration with you to make your daughter’s experience, while here at Danebank, the best it can be. All sport enquiries can be emailed to sport@danebank.nsw.edu.au

MyIGSSA
A key feature of myIGSSA is the mobile application which is the public component where draws, maps, venue closures and results will be accessible on smart mobile devices for your teams, coaches, parents and staff to utilise.

To access all mobile screens you will need to set up a bookmark – http://m.ahigs.nsw.edu.au/

These screens will allow everyone to:

  • Find Games for selected teams (including links to maps)
  • Check results and ladders
  • Check Venue Closures

Participating in Sports
On this site, you will find all the information required for each of the sports that Danebank runs on Saturday mornings.

This program is not compulsory, but we do encourage your daughter to get involved for the myriad of physical, friendship and health benefits that sport provides. These include:

  • Enhancing each girl’s sense of self
  • Improving each girl’s capacity to manage challenging circumstances
  • Moving with confidence while learning new skills and activities
  • Developing these skills will enable them to adopt and promote healthy, active lifestyles
  • Promoting enjoyable, lifelong physical activities
  • Providing the physical benefits of good muscle tone, improved cardiovascular health, balance, co-ordination, good skin and hair, improved concentration, fitness and sleep

Also, the social benefits of participating in sport are very important. Both you and your daughter will meet students and parents from other year groups. You can make life long friendships from these experiences. You will  visit some interesting schools and different places in Sydney, and enjoy some very exciting games, and just think of the quality time you will get to spend in the car with your daughter enroute to different venues!

Commitment
It is imperative that you support and encourage your daughter to make a firm commitment to both training sessions during the weeks and games on Saturday mornings. This will ensure the smooth running of all teams, and, whilst at times you may think that missing one week is not a problem, it does have an impact on the other players and parents.

Registering to Play
At this time, you and your daughter will be required to sign a commitment contract when you register for each sport.
