Merrimac State High offers a rich and diverse sports program. The school has a long tradition of valuing physical activity in the lives of its students and promoting a healthy lifestyle not just at school, but as a way of life. Participation from all students, from Year 7 through to Year 12, is encouraged, as part of our endeavour to enhance personal fitness and performance, teach discipline, improve self esteem and promote team-work and a balanced lifestyle. The school boasts a wide range of indoor and outdoor sporting facilities, including a 25-metre swimming pool, indoor sporting facility, oval and tennis complex with four courts.
Together with inter-school sport, internal House competitions are held where house spirit and participation are emphasised; these include the Junior and Senior Swimming Carnivals, Cross-country and Athletic Carnival.
