The following information relates to reporting on sporting teams/event and school-based sporting events during Term 1 as well as representative sport for Broken Bay (BBSSSA) and NSWCCC Sport.
Reports for College Teams
Team and individual results from College-based events, will be conveyed via the College fortnightly newsletter, Touchstones. 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/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 firstname.lastname@example.org and or email@example.com.

- Swimming (College Carnival – Friday 8 February)

With regards to all sports, students are reminded to be listening to the Morning Notices during Roll Call for the names of staff who are organising various teams and for who to see if they wish to enter other individual competitions.
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 2020 calendars for BBSSSA and NSWCCC are located via the College Website.
On the BBSSSA (www.brokenbaysport.org.au/secondary) and NSWCCC (csnsw.sport) websites you will find all the Sports events held throughout the year. There is also a full calendar to check entry and closing dates, selection trial dates, sport specific information for individuals and team events.
The websites allow 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 goes beyond this level – all costs become their/parent 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.
