Skipperoos State Success


On the weekend of 22 - 23 April, King’s competitive skipping team, the Skipperoos, competed at the State Championships, held at Tallebudgera. A team of 19 King’s athletes competed in many events including:

30-second speed sprint
1-minute endurance
3-minute endurance
30-second double under
1-minute triple under
consecutive triple under
individual and team freestyle

The team is coached by Year 4 Lead Teacher, Miss Meteyard, as well as Mrs Hawkins, Mrs Smith and Jasmine Hawkins (Class of 2021). In conjunction with coaching the team, Jasmine competed at the Championships, winning all of her events, including Age Champion. Team camaraderie was exceptionally high at this event, with every student showing great sportsmanship, encouragement, and team support. It was the first event at this level for some of the younger skippers and they performed very well. The results achieved were outstanding. Seventeen athletes will now represent King’s at the National Championships in June in Sydney. Six King’s athletes have also qualified to represent Australia at the 2023 World Championships in July in Colorado Springs, USA, which is outstanding. Go King's Skipperoos!
