At Coolum Beach Christian College we present our students with many opportunities to participate in sporting events whilst learning important skills and having fun with their teammates! Sport is a valued part of our curriculum and assists in children’s development with both physical and mental health benefits, including building self-esteem and alertness. Our programs have been specifically designed to be fun, exciting, challenging and rewarding for our students.
Our College provides specialist Sports lessons throughout the week for each year level from Prep to Year 12. Starting from the lower grades we focus on those critical gross-motor skills, confidence, enjoyment, participation and sportsmanship; which are then built on throughout the year levels to follow. Many opportunities to experience new sporting experiences are presented to our CBCC students in a variety of activities.
Our sporting programs align with Australian curriculum with additional visits from coaching professionals in our local community for Oztag, Tennis, Cricket, and Futsal. Our College has a competitive Netball team, Hip Hop Dance program and is involved in various sporting grants that allow students to further their interests and skills. Our high school students are also involved in electives once a week where they can select a sport on offer to participate in. Some examples of the activities offered during this time may include Surfing, Badminton, Football, Waterpolo and so on.
We also hold annual Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics Carnivals with each of these events offering opportunities for our students to progress to district, regional and state levels if their performance warrants it. We have had students compete at state levels and obtain sporting scholarships in their specific areas.
At CBCC we are proud of our excellent sporting facilities which include a large oval that is suitable for our whole school sporting carnivals, Basketball, Tennis and Netball courts, as well as a modern Multipurpose Hall that is suitable for Hockey, Volleyball, Basketball, Futsal and other indoor sporting activities.
