What if the sport I am REALLY good at a sport not listed here?
The sports listed are those available to the students of Emerald. There are many others available that have a representative path that we do not participate in as a school. If your child is very talented in another sport, please see the school as they may still be able to participate as a single entry at higher levels of representation.
