Christian Brothers College (CBC) has a strong tradition and history of success in the sporting arena.
We recognise that sport is an essential part of Australian culture, and we share the passion for sporting achievement enjoyed in our community.
We offer a wide range of co-curricular activities to encourage not only the development of individual talents but also the important life skills of teamwork, cooperation, positive behaviour and attitudes, self-discipline, and commitment. With around 20 diverse activities to choose from CBC offers something for everyone.
CBC employs specialist coaches in Soccer, Football, Basketball, and Cricket, to enable students to improve their skills and game.
