Sport

At Calvary we love our sport and endeavour to deliver developmentally appropriate and rigorous sporting programs, which are part of a healthy and balanced school program.

Calvary Christian College encourages the physical health and development of our students offering Physical Education as a curriculum subject, development programs, an off-site aquatics program for Junior School students, interschool sports for Years 4-12 students, community sport with the Underwood Netball Association, Logan Uniting Church Soccer Club, Brisbane Metropolitan Touch Football Association and many other sports depending on the interest and skill level of our students. Calvary is highly regarded as a successful Futsal school and our Futsal program boasts a significant level of success at all levels of competition, including State and National Championships. Our students are also encouraged to participate in our Interhouse carnivals and a variety of co-curricular sports are offered on and off campus.

Each year many students join sporting teams and attend training, finding fulfilment in seeing the rewards of their hard work, team spirit and extended endurance pay off at the end of each season.

The College also encourages students to achieve their individual sporting potential, offering many opportunities through representative pathways.

The values we uphold at Calvary sport are:
• Winning with humility and losing with dignity
• Fair play and honesty
• Teamwork
• Self-discipline, commitment and persistence
• Fun and enjoyment
