The Rise of Girls Rugby

Calrossy is delighted that Downtown Magazine is featuring Calrossy Rugby and story of growth from such humble beginnings in 2002 to now 20 years on where it has become the highest participation sport within Calrossy. The latest Downtown edition describes the rise of women’s rugby and includes stories of alumni who are playing and working in the Super W competition and the youngest coach in the Central North working with a team in which she played  a couple of years ago.

According to Director of Sport Mr. David Hampstead, 2022 is shaping up to be a huge year on and off the field for Calrossy as we continue to encourage high participation from Prep to Year 12 through access to coaching and support students to reach their full potential in their chosen fields.

Principal Mr. David Smith reports that the Calrossy Board and Master Planning Committee are committed to improving our sporting facilities. “These upgrades are part of the strategy, supported by our quality PDHPE programs and the recent of appointment of a dedicated PDHPE teacher in our Junior School, to enhance the fundamental skill development and enjoyment of sport across the school for all students.”
