At Kambrya, we provide plenty of opportunities for your child to showcase their sporting prowess through Sub School Competitions, Interschool Sport and our Sport Carnivals. Sport is a big part of the Kambrya culture with a big emphasis placed on participation and achievement.
Interschool Sporting Competitions
Kambrya has a growing co-curricular sporting program that provides numerous opportunities for students of all ages to represent the college. There is a strong emphasis on participation as well as achievement. Students gain many benefits from being involved in sport, including teamwork and leadership skills, excellent physical fitness, the chance to try their hand at different sports, and developing lasting friendships with fellow teammates.
Kambrya is affiliated with School Sport Victoria (SSV), competing in the Casey North Division against several other local high schools. There is a wide variety of sports on offer for students of all year levels to represent the college throughout the year. Some of the sports on offer include:
Term One: cricket, baseball, softball, volleyball, tennis, touch football, swimming
Term Two: AFL, netball, soccer, badminton, cross country
Term Three: Basketball, hockey, table tennis, athletics
Success at the Division level sees teams progress through the stages of competition of Regionals and State.
Recent years have seen a wide range of success for both teams and individual students, including State Champions in Softball, Baseball and Touch Football. Many of our students are also selected in State and National teams.
Students can get involved in the interschool sporting program at Kambrya by trying out for sporting teams when these sessions are held. Dates for tryouts are communicated on the noticeboard in the gym foyer area, as well as via homegroup teachers, notices around the subschool areas and lunchtime announcements. Tryouts and training sessions for all sporting teams are held at lunchtimes, and anyone should feel free to get involved.
Whole School Sports Carnivals
At Kambrya College students have the opportunity to participate in a number of whole school sports carnivals, including:
- Swimming (term 1)
- Cross country (term 1)
- Athletics (term 2)
Students are encouraged to wear their sub-school house colours, cheer loudly and participate in as many events possible to gain points for their sub-school. If students are successful, they may be invited to represent Kambrya College and compete against other students from neighbouring schools.
Sub School Competitions
At Kambrya College we offer a range of different competitions to increase our student connectedness and promote college spirit. All competitions are held during lunchtime and activities range from sport, academic and library competitions.
All students compete in the competitions for a chance to win house points and to be crowned overall annual Sub School Champions.
