Sport 2019
01.02.19
Welcome to all the Year 7 students and families as well as all our other year groups and their families. We look forward to another great year of competition for St Edward’s teams and individuals in both school-based and external-based events and competitions.

The following information relates to Reporting on Sporting Teams/Events, School-based Sporting Events during Term 1 and Representative Sport for Broken Bay (BBSSSA) and NSWCCC Sport.

Reports for College Teams

Team and individual results from school-based events, will be conveyed via the Touchstones newsletter. Team coaches and or managers will endeavour to file a report at the completion of the sporting event and a report will also appear in the College Yearbook. Where possible individuals and teams will also be recognised at College Assemblies – if time and schedules permit.

Please remember to keep me informed if your son/s achieve recognition in the sporting arena outside of the College. These achievements will be acknowledged via the ‘News and Events, Student Spotlight’ section of the College website. Address all emails with information to jcarpenter@stedwards.nsw.edu.au and/or kfriend@stedwards.nsw.edu.au.

School-Based Sporting Events During Term 1 include:
  • College Swimming Carnival – Friday 8 February
  • BBSSSA and NSWCCC Swimming Carnivals

Sport Information

With regards to all sports, students are reminded to be listening to the Morning Notices during Tutor for names of staff who are organising various teams and for who to see if they wish to enter other various individual competitions.

 

Representative Sport

For all new students and families, students compete or nominate for selection via the BBSSSA (Broken Bay Secondary Schools Sports Association) and NSWCCC (New South Wales Combined Catholic Colleges) pathways into NSW All School and School Sport Australia teams/events.

The 2019 calendars for BBSSSA and NSWCCC are located on the College Website under the Co-Curriculum tab.

On the BBSSSA and NSWCCC  websites you will find all the Sports events held throughout the year. There is also a full calendar to check entry closing dates, selection trial dates, sport specific information for individual and team events.

The website allows parents/caregivers to enter their child into various EVENTS WHERE AN INDIVIDUAL ENTRY IS REQUIRED and pay the entry fees. If your son is selected in either a BBSSSA or NSWCCC team, they will be given instructions on how to register.

Entry fees for College teams and those who represent the College individually at BBSSSA level will be covered by the College.  However, once a student progresses beyond this level all costs become the family’s responsibility.

Please remember to inform the College if your son(s) is selected in or they are attending selection trials outside BBSSSA or NSWCCC events (eg NSW All Schools) as we do not always receive notification of this. We will only receive confirmation of selection in BBSSSA and NSWCCC teams and events.
