Sports at Freshwater Senior Campus

As NBSC Freshwater Senior Campus is a Stage 6 school (Years 11 and 12), sport is not part of the curriculum, however, we do encourage all students to get involved in the different avenues of sport within the school.

  • Touch—Boys and girls

  • Football (Soccer) - Boys and girls

  • Volleyball—Girls

  • Basketball—Boys and girls

  • Netball—Girls

  • Waterpolo— Boys and girls

*Please note these are subject to change due to expression of interest from students in previous years.


Sport Carnivals


The athletics carnival is held at the beginning of Term 2 and is 'whole school' providing a great opportunity to bring Year 11 and Year 12 together.  Students compete for their 'year group' to win points and potentially win the 'bird'.  Students that place will represent Freshwater Senior Campus at Warringah Zone and potentially Sydney North, CHS and All Schools.

Swimming and Cross Country

In 2021, school swimming and cross country carnival were not run. Students registered their interest to represent their school at the Warringah Zone Carnival.  Students were then provided with an opportunity to potentially represent Sydney North, CHS and All Schools.

Talented Athlete Program

Freshwater has a Talented  Athlete Support Program (TASP). The aim of the program is to;

  • Support athletes that have a high training or competition load and therefore have     difficulty balancing academic and sporting commitments.

  • Liaise with parents and the student in regards to sporting commitments.

  • Communicate challenges and achievements to teachers.

  • Meet with students and SLO every month during faculty hubs (every second hub) to check in/ support learning/ create study timetables.​
