Secondary Sport

All students in Years 7-10 who not selected for a Representative Team take part in the Recreational Sports program that the school offers. The nature of these sports is less competitive, allowing all students to feel comfortable. The variety of sports offered each term is determined by the season and availability of facilities.

Elite Level Competition

NBCS is a member of the Christian Schools Sports Association (CSSA), a state-based association that encompasses over 80 schools. Students who are placed first or second at the Swimming or Athletics Carnivals will represent NBCS at Zone Carnivals, involving CSSA schools in the Northern Metropolitan Zone. Students placing first or second at the Zone Carnival qualify to compete at the CSSA State Carnival. In Cross Country, students placing first, second, third or fourth in their age group will represent NBCS at the CSSA State Cross Country Carnival.

NBCS also regularly enters teams in CSSA Zone and State Gala Days and competitions for other sports, including soccer, netball, basketball, touch football, softball, cricket and gymnastics.

NBCS is also 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. Any student who is particularly gifted in sport has every opportunity to achieve at the highest level.
