Lightning Carnival – 2 weeks to go!

Our next event is quickly approaching and it’s a big one!  On Tuesday 20 June, students from all 9 of our association schools will be competing across 4 sports and venues in our Lightning Carnival.  Fixtures are now available for each of the 4 sports: netball, volleyball, Australian rules football and soccer.

Sadly, when contacting volunteer groups to assist with umpiring, I was told that there were issues with parent behaviour at two of our sports in 2016.  While parent spectators are always welcome at our events, and add enthusiasm and atmosphere, we ask that you remember that our umpires are ALL volunteers.  Quite often they are high school students who are trying to give back to the community they were once a part of or trying to gain valuable experience and learn.

If you have an issue with an umpire decision, firstly ask yourself if it is really an issue worth disputing or if in the spirit of junior community sport can you let it go?  If you do feel like your team was disadvantaged and it would change the outcome of  the game, please speak to your school’s supervising teacher first and let them liaise with the umpire and any CPSSA reps present.  As an association we have decided that parents who are causing distress to our volunteers will be given a warning.  If they continue, points will be deducted from their school.  We truly hope it does not come to this but the policy has been put in place to ensure a continued positive relationship with our volunteer groups.

Basketball Results

On Monday 22 May, all 9 schools in our association participated in our Basketball Carnival at Wally Hagan Stadium in Hamilton Hill. It was a day that show cased the remarkable talents of some of our students as well as an opportunity for others to try a sport they wouldn’t otherwise play.

Many thanks must go to all the staff at the Cockburn Basketball Association who made it all possible.  The umpires worked tirelessly, while the canteen kept everyone energised.  Thank you also to the many parents who volunteered their time to score, coach or spectate.

Congratulations to the Yidarra girls team who remained undefeated to win the girls competition.  In the boys competition both Yidarra and Living Waters were undefeated to be equal victors.  Unfortunately they did not get a chance through the day to play against each other – what a game it would have been!

Basketball 22 May 2017

Our next carnival for 2017 is quickly approaching!  Apologies to anyone who may have tried to access the website over the past couple weeks for fixtures and were unable to do so.  You can download fixtures and competition information here.

The date of this carnival has changed from when it was originally planned to MONDAY 22 MAY.  We look forward to seeing our talented players competing at Cockburn Stadium then.

Diving into 2017 with the CPSSA Swimming Carnival!

Welcome back to all students, and their families, from the nine member schools who make up the CPSSA.  It’s that exciting time of the year when Phys Ed teachers are madly organising students in to races, pinning ribbons and adding the finishing touches to the programs for their school swimming carnivals.  In only a few short weeks we will all be gathering at Rockingham Aquatic Centre for our first inter-school event.

The spectator program for the CPSSA Swimming Carnival can be found here.  This includes venue information, a program of events as well as details about the carnival itself.  We look forward to seeing some new faces, as well as the return of previous competitors.

Cricket Champs!

Well done to all involved in our final carnival for 2016 – the Inter-school Cricket Carnival. With WACA representatives Corey and Ellie watching on, our students impressed with their big hots, classic catches, thrilling run-outs and brilliant fielding.

Well done also to our fantastic umpires who battled the heat and the sunshine for the entire day – without umpires there would be no carnival!

The four division winners were:

Boys A – Queen of Apostles

Girls A – Yidarra

Boys B – Star of the Sea

Girls B – Queen of Apostles
