2020 ACC HIGH PERFORMANCE SPORT CLASSES – YEARS’ 8 TO 10

To play ACC Sport in Years 8, 9 or 10 in 2020 at the Bundoora campus, students should be in an ACC High Performance class. If your son didn’t play one of the specific sports listed below in 2019, but would like to be considered for that sport in 2020, then he should attend the following trials –
Basketball - College Hall 23 and 25 July after school 3:30pm - 4:30pm
Table Tennis - Atrium 22 and 26 July at lunchtime 12:50pm - 1:20pm
Cricket - Bundoora College Cricket Nets 30 July and 2 August after school 3:30pm - 4:30pm
Hockey - Bunjil Park 30 July at lunchtime 12.50pm – 1.20pm
Tennis- Bunjil Park Tennis Courts 7 August and 9 August after school 3.30pm – 4.30pm

2020 ACC HIGH PERFORMANCE SPORT CLASSES – YEARS’ 8 TO 10 - CONTINUED

These trials are used to assess the students’ abilities and possible selection into an ACC High Performance class in 2020 and are for students currently in Years’ 7, 8 and 9 who didn’t make a specific ACC team in 2019. Students are asked to wear their sports uniform for the trials. Please note - Students who have played a specific ACC sport in 2019 are not required to attend the trials for that specific sport, as their performance throughout the ACC season is used to assess their possible selection into an ACC High Performance class for 2020. However, if for example, a student played football in 2019, but didn’t make the basketball team, and would like to be considered for the basketball team in 2020, then they must attend the basketball trials. Details relating to the 2020 ACC High Performance Classes can be found in the College Newsletter that will be published on July 17th.

KOBE AND ALEX PLAY FOR THE KICKSTART AFL VICTORIAN INDIGENOUS STATE UNDER 15 TEAM

Congratulations to Year 9 students, Kobe Knight (T16) and Alex Rigney (L19) who were selected from over 600 players to represent Victoria in the National Football Championships which were played earlier this year. From his performance at the Championships, Kobe is one of eight Victorian players who has now been selected in the AFL Indigenous Flying Boomerangs National Under 15 Squad. The squad of 50 joined together last weekend and played a trial game at the GMHBA stadium in Geelong. The game was of a extremely high standard with Kobe making the most of his opportunities across half forward and down back. The performance impressed the selectors and as a result, has been selected in the squad of 25 for further games in July. From these trials in July, 10 to 12 Boomerang players will join the World Team Program to form an All Stars Team in November. Congratulations once again to both boys on their achievements and all within the Parade community wish them the very best in their future sporting pursuits.

MUAY THAI - MARKUS JOVCEVSKI

Whilst a relative new comer to the sport, Year 11 student Markus Jovcevski (L10) is certainly moving up the ranks in the sport of Muay Thai. During the Term 1 holidays, Markus competed in the 16-17 Age Group 71 Kg category, at the Muay Thai Australian (MTA) National Championships in Queensland. Markus’ performance was outstanding, and as a result of winning the gold medal for his age and weight class, he has now been invited to compete in the World Championships which will be held in Turkey. Congratulations Markus!

VICTORIAN SCHOOLS ASSOCIATION COMPETITION

On Monday May 13th the 2019 VSAC Swimming Championships were held at MSAC which enabled many of the best swimmers from a number of School Sport Associations to compete against each other. Parade students, Jayden Carr (Year 11, H05) and Makaio De Thomasis (Year 8, T15) were part of the Associated Catholic Colleges (ACC) team which performed extremely well on the night. The ACC team finished 4th behind teams from EISM, AGSV and APS. A special thanks to the CEO of the ACC, Mr Paddy McKenna and his assistant Mr Domenic Scarpino for organising the ACC Team.

MELBOURNE CITY - COLLEGE OF FOOTBALL

Whilst the Melbourne City Football Club have been using the facilities on Bunjil Park to train a number of their Junior and Youth teams since 2018, Parade College warmly welcomes the Melbourne City – College of Football which incorporates the coaching and development of students at Parade College. Mr Lachlan Armstrong (Manager, School Affiliates and Assistant Coach NYL/NPL – Melbourne City Football Club) coordinates the Melbourne City coaching team which consists of himself, Simon Zappia, Leroy Almenara, Matthew Conversano and Petr Kratky. All coaches bring a wealth of experience and expertise which will undoubtedly benefit both the development of individuals and Parade ACC teams. With the assistance of the Bunjil Park lights, the Parade teams currently train before school from 7.00am to 8.15am. Whilst the affiliation between Melbourne City and Parade College is in its infancy, the benefits for both parties is already evident.

ACC ATHLETIC CHAMPIONSHIPS 2019

The 2019 ACC Athletic Championships were held at the Lakeside Stadium on Wednesday March 27th. After 7 weeks of training the Parade team were keen to test themselves against the other ACC schools. Under ideal conditions, early consistent performances both on the ‘track’ and in the ‘field’ saw the Parade team take an 18 point lead. The evenness of the competition saw this margin fluctuate slightly throughout the day, with St. Bernards, St. Josephs Geelong and Whitefriars all hot in pursuit. The Parade team responded to all challenges and took a 30 point lead into the final relay events. The U/13 Relay was the first of 7 relay events, and with the Parade team executing excellent ‘changeovers’, convincingly won the event. The poise shown by the 4 Year 7 boys set the tone for the other relay teams. The consistent performance which was so evident throughout the day continued in the remaining 6 relay events, which resulted in Parade winning a third consecutive Division One ACC Athletic Championships. Whilst Parade’s success was the result of an outstanding team performance, listed below are the students who won an ACC Athletic event.
