Sport at

Faith

The College sporting program is a key component of our holistic and balanced approach to education. We are proud to offer a wide variety of sporting opportunities supported by an enthusiastic group of staff. The College’s sports department is committed to providing pathways that meet the needs of our community. Our programs aim to deliver quality learning experiences in sport that promote enjoyment, life-long engagement, and achievement. Through regular high-quality sporting competition against like-minded independent schools, students will develop the human attributes necessary for the future including respect, leadership, unity, and determination.

GBC Sport

As a member of the Greater Brisbane Conference (GBC), our students have access to a year-round Saturday sporting competition. The GBC competition allows our students to compete against some of the strongest Colleges in the Brisbane, Redlands, Ipswich and Logan areas. Whilst the competition provides opportunities to participate in sports such as Netball, Touch Football, Soccer and Tennis, it has also allowed our students to experience sports that are not commonly available in the Lockyer Valley including Volleyball, Basketball and Indoor Cricket.

Total Rugby Program

The College also operates a highly competitive Rugby Union and Rugby League program. The Total Rugby Program provides multiple Rugby pathways (Union, League, Rugby 7s) for boys to develop skills, gameplay understanding, tactical awareness and most importantly character. Total Rugby embodies the values of Respect, Responsibility, Honour and Grit, with a purpose to grow the person alongside the player, break negative stereotypes about playing ‘footy’ and create a sense of belonging and community. The program allows teams to participate in the Confraternity Rugby League Competition, Broncos Cup, Darling Downs Super Schools Cup and The Downs Rugby 7s. It is envisioned the program will grow to offer similar opportunities for girls at our College.

Representative Opportunities

Additional opportunities are provided to students in such sports as Equestrian, AFL, Touch Football and Netball, along with encouragement and support to trial for Western Ranges District and Metropolitan West Representative teams. Our involvement in these programs has been extremely well represented by our students at Faith.
