District, Regional and State Sports
Through the School Sport system, students are provided with the opportunity to represent their district (Central Cape), region (Peninsula), Queensland and Australia. Students who gain selection in representative teams are recognised formally through our bronze, silver and gold awards at our Sports Awards Evening.
Western Cape College students form part of the Central Cape district. Students successful in making a Central Cape team may represent their district at the Peninsula Region Championships/Trials.
To be considered for Central Cape selection in the above sports, students must undertake a series of trials. The first stage involves students nominating for and attending the trials. All information regarding these trials is made available to students via morning notices. If selected in the Central Cape team the student will then progress to Peninsula trials and if selected in the Peninsula team students will usually travel and compete in a Queensland School Sport competition. Contested by up to 12 regions, students at the State Championships have the opportunity to be selected to represent Queensland School Sport teams.
