Healthy & active bodies for active minds
We believe sport is an integral part of creating a positive, well-rounded schooling experience for our students.
Sport and physical activity help to build social, emotional and physical skills. It teaches our students independence, resilience and teamwork, providing valuable opportunities to develop initiative, creativity, persistence, problem-solving, communication and collaboration.
Students in Years 7-10 have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of sports weekly. The variety of sports offered each term is determined by the season and availability of facilities.

Peninsula Cup Competition
NBCS competes in Netball, Soccer and Rugby Union against other schools from the Northern Beaches in Term 2 and 3. Students are encouraged to try out for these teams and represent their school.
Elite Level Competition
Students who are gifted in sports are given the opportunity to achieve at the highest level, with various avenues for them to represent the school in elite competition.
NBCS is a member of the Christian Schools Sports Association (CSSA), a state-based association that encompasses over 80 schools. Students who are in the first few places at swimming, athletics and cross country events represent NBCS at the CSSA Zone and possibly State level.
NBCS also regularly enters teams in CSSA Zone and State Gala Days and competitions for other sports, including soccer, netball, oztag, futsal, basketball, touch football, softball, cricket and gymnastics.
NBCS is a member of Combined Independent Schools (CIS). This organisation allows students to be selected in State and National sporting teams. Students who achieve high placings at a CSSA State Carnival go on to compete at CIS level. NBCS students are also able to trial for select CIS teams directly, such as rugby union, tennis, cricket, diving, gymnastics, equestrian, softball, soccer and netball.
