We love our sports at ICMS. Depending on availability and season, we play various sports. Enjoy this extract from ICMS student magazine WOTS! To read the rest of the magazine click here.
Rugby Union is played during Autumn and Winter (April to August) at ICMS. It’s a competitive sport where the boys play against other Sydney clubs in the NSW suburban rugby union. Games are played on Saturday afternoons and are held locally.
The Bandicoots 2015 season is shaping up to be our best yet, carrying on from the end of last season. Team manager Dean Millar emphasised the solid base of players who are both current students and alumni. They all have had a great pre-season, which resulted in them outclassing an understrength Terrey Hills team in their trial match. This form carried on and resulted in our players comprehensively winning their first official match for the 2015 season.
Home games are played at Manly Oval, so head down, wear blue, and support the team in their quest for premiership glory.
Netball is operated externally from ICMS and is held at both Dee Why and Warriewood on Tuesday and Thursday nights. The competition runs all-year-round and it is open to guys and girls.
Netball is played with seven on the court at one time, with the court split into thirds and only players in certain positions are allowed to enter specific parts of the court. For trimester one and two of 2015, we have two netball teams (the Bandicoots and the Eagles) playing in the Dee Why competition. Both teams have a mixture of talent, determination and some fresh faces. All are studying at ICMS, so look out for a strong team in the Eastern University Games.
We have a social team and a competitive team for netball, so if you’re interested in playing, please email Kayley Stephenson for further information. Netball isn’t a girls only sport and guys can play in the upcoming mixed netball competition.
Round 1 results are as follows:
• The Bandicoots won 40-1 in an amazing victory
• The Eagles unfortunately lost 24-4.
The current netball competition recommenced after the April school holidays.
Futsal is consistently the most popular sport at ICMS, thanks to the College’s array of international students. A strong competition is held on Monday nights, in the ICMS sports zone.
Futsal is played with two teams and five players on each side. The competition runs from weeks 1-11, including the final series.
Prizes are on offer for prevailing winners. This trimester’s futsal competition consists of 12 teams, with more than 100 players competing. We have a mixture of teams consisting of ICMS students, Kaplan and two GoStudy teams. Many of these teams have players from all across the globe, which provides excellent competition for domestic and international students. There are several teams to look out for, including:
• Los Galacticos
• The Sea Lions
• ICMS United
• Team Serratus
This season, the top four teams will play in the Division A playoffs, while the Division B playoff will be between those who finish fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth. Come and watch the team every Monday night from 6pm-10pm.
• ICMS will be hosting a surf competition later in the year – watch this space.
• At the college we have a strong cohort of basketball players so please register your interest.
• The Eastern University Games will be held in July in the NSW city of Wagga Wagga.
