It has been a busy start to the term for sport at GCC. With teams entered in Volleyball, Soccer, Touch Football and Netball, many of our students and coaches have been extremely busy preparing for competition each week.
Our GCC Swimming Carnival was a fantastic event and preceded the District competition in Week 4 and upcoming regional and state competitions. Students have also had a variety of opportunities to try out at district level across sports at trial day 1-4. The remainder of this term should prove exciting with a number of our teams topping their prospective competition tables and demonstrating the grit and determination on the sporting field that now characterises teams from Glasshouse Christian College.
Congratulations to all of our GCC SCISSA Volleyball teams. They won all nine games in round 1. This is a fantastic start to the season. Round 2 proved a little more difficult for some teams with two losses against Good Shepherd Lutheran College. Despite our earlier successes, there is room for improvement. Players are expected to attend the scheduled training sessions.

Kawana Cup Touch Football
For the first time this year, we have a junior touch team in the Kawana Cup Touch competition. This team consists of boys from Years 6, 7 and 8. The competition runs over 15 weeks and has teams from across the Sunshine Coast competing every Wednesday afternoon. This week the boys came up against Chancellor State College in their first game. The experienced Chancellor team proved too strong in this game. The GCC team will continue to develop and should prove to be a force to reckon with under the tutelage of Mr Jared Bullock.
Congratulations to the following students for their recent success at the recent district selection trials for Independent District teams. To have 10 students selected from GCC is a fantastic achievement for our College.
