Sports

​​​​Sport is a valued part of Brisbane State High School and all students are strongly encouraged to become involved.

The activities usually take place after school or on Saturdays. We expect that players are committed to the school, and school sporting commitments should take precedence over any other competition.

See the venue and playing times for each sport this week.

Registration and consent forms

Register your child online for each sport that they wish to participate in:

​Parents/guardians need to print and complete the General Consent Form (PDF, 45 KB) and it must be returned to the Sports Office in lower D Block.

Age groups

Boys' age groups are determined by their age on 1 January of the school year. No student is eligible to take part at any time in the year of their 19th birthday or if they have turned 19 before the year of competition.

Girls'​ age groups are determined by the age they turn during the year. Many QGSSSA sports are conducted in year levels.

Volunteer as a coach

One of the great features of State High is that we welcome parents and past students to assist with volunteer coaching. All coaches require a Working with Children check (Blue Card), organised through the Master in Charge (MiC) of that activity. Parents of current students do not require a Blue Card.
 
Due to the number of teams playing each week, it is impossible to have all teams covered by teacher coaches. Any assistance that parents or past students can offer in coaching or managing teams, scoring, officiating or working in the canteen is greatly appreciated.​
​​

Contact the relevant Master in Charge if you can help with a sport.

Sub-committees

Some sports have a sub-committee which are organised and run by parents to assist the MiC at the school in the running of that program. These committees meet on a regular basis during the season and are overseen by the school’s P&C Association. Information about each committee is listed on the individual sport page.

Interhouse competitions​

There are 3 school interhouse competitions held each year:

  • swimming 
  • cross country 
  • athletics.

Dates and locations are sent out in the school newsletter closer to the event.
