Cornerstone is not a large school but does have over half its students playing organised sport in any given year.
When placing students into teams we consider a wide range of needs for each year including Tournament teams, Social needs (an important focus), number of players, coach, and so on. We do our best to meet everybody's needs. If you want more information about your child's placement see Jannell Eades.
We try to accommodate all students into CCS teams, however, sometimes this is not possible so we have created this procedure to ensure that all children are catered for...
There may be consequences from adhering to this procedure...
All these scenarios, and more, create a great opportunity for children (and adults) to put into place our Cornerstone Values: Integrity, Kindness, Respect, Diligence and Humility.
* For children to play at representative level, they generally have to play for their school.
** Cost and Time are the main factors parents are consulted before we begin to form our teams.
*** At this stage we do our best to form teams. The reason why we must have a commitment from the child to play for the school is simply to ensure that all children at Cornerstone Christian School can have the opportunity of playing in an Extra-Curricular sports team. If children opted to play for another school, it could mean that other children, who wanted to play for Cornerstone in a particular sport may not have a team to play in. In a small school, this is a very real possibility.
**** There are 2 scenarios here; sometimes there are not enough children and sometimes there are too many. eg we could form 1 team but not quite 2.
Summer Sports Awards will take place at the end of Term 1 (including the previous Term 4 players) Winter Sports Awards will take place at the end of Term 3 each year.
Children who pay and play extra-curricular sports for the school are the only recipients of these awards.
There are 3 or 4 awards given for each team that plays a sport, summer or winter.
Most Valuable Player - The person who illustrates highly skilled play within the team.
Most Improved Player - The person who has improved the most throughout the season.
Sportsmanship - The player who exhibits good sportsmanship in the game.
Player of the Year - The player who best encompasses the school values of...
There are also more than 24 trophies. We try to ensure that children receive only one trophy per year and do not receive the same trophy two years in a row. (though both can happen)
Before children can play for a Cornerstone sports team they need to have paid their contribution that has been worked out for a team to enter a competition or event before it starts. From this point we then enter teams based on the number of paid up children. If people are unable to pay the full amount they have been asked for before the commencement of the competition the child will be withdrawn from the team they have been entered in. Once full payment is made they can rejoin the team.
We prefer registration and payment to be done at the same time. You can pay cash, eftpos or though Internet Banking.
