Recreational Sport Just Went to the Next Level
King's Pimpama is introducing Recreational Sport for high school students in Term 4. A first for Pimpama, the program will run in the sports timetable on Thursday afternoons from 1:30 to 3:15 pm. Twenty-two activities are on offer, some with costs associated, while others are free. A sports development program is also available for basketball, netball, rugby 7s, volleyball and futsal, at no cost.
Activities incurring a cost include:
- Aqua sport
- Top Golf
- Core climbing
Fishing is the cheapest of the paid-for sports options. With the Broadwater on our doorstep, our fishing program is perfect for students wanting to find out more about how to fish. Students and teachers will be heading to Cabbage Tree Point, where there are options for bait and lures. Students require their own rod and reel, preferably fitted with a 10lb to 20lb line. All hooks/bait/sinkers/old-man-fishing-stories supplied!
Free activities include:
- Competitive boardgames
- Media Team
- Team Challenges
These events all take place at school.
Sports Development Programs
The sports development programs will focus on skills, teamwork and game development, with the intention of competing against external teams in the future. Students are expected to be focused and committed to their chosen sport. Professional coaches will conduct the sports development sessions.
