SPORT 6-12

At Northern Bay College we recognise the benefits of sport for all children. Our sporting programs allow students to work in teams, participate in sport/physical activity on a regular basis and represent our college against other schools in a well organised, enjoyable setting.

Sport at Northern Bay

At Northern Bay College all Year 6-12 students are encouraged to participate in Inter-school sports within the region. The sports program is designed to give every student the opportunity to participate in the field that they enjoy, and also experience sports they may not have been exposed to in the past.


In term 1 students have the opportunity to represent the college in swimming. Swimming trials are held in the middle of February and those students who perform well go on to compete in the Barwon & Bellarine Divisions swimming carnival held at Kardinia Pool.


The Year 7-12 athletics carnival is held at Landy Field in March with all students competing in the house competition. Yellow house are the current reigning champions of the NBC Year 7-12 Athletics Carnival. Students who perform well on this day then represent the college in the Barwon Division Athletics Carnival in May. Students who excel in athletics have the opportunity to go all the way through to the State finals.

In Year 6 students participate under the College banner at Lightning premiership.
