Please read the BDC Sport Code of Conduct found at the below link and make sure your children know and understand the expectations of them when they represent BDC. 


U12 Girls

On Thursday 26th May eight 12 years aged girls competed at Sportz Central as part of the Coffs Coast Futsal trials. The girls competed in four age-based games playing against St Patricks Macksville and Nambucca Valley CCS twice. Throughout all the games our girls played with enthusiasm and excellent sportsmanship securing a place in the final by remaining undefeated. During the final our girls scored 6 goals to Nambucca's 1 and were ecstatic in having taken out the tournament after a long day. 

U14 Girls

The under 14's girls' Futsal team continued its impressive run of form at the latest competition at sportz central last Thursday. The girls went undefeated throughout the competition with commanding performance throughout the day. A goal scoring frenzy from attacking players along with solid defence saw the girls score 33 goals and only concede 5. Beside the amazing skill on display the girls were exceptionally well behaved and represented the college with pride.

U16 Girls

The under 16's girls were champions of the day in their division coming back from a 1-0 deficit at halftime to beat Bellingen High School 4-1 in the final game. The girls played exceptionally well throughout the day, displaying impressive teamwork and some moments of individual brilliance. The team look forward to the regional competition that will occur later this year.

U12 Boys

Last week BDC sent two 12s boys futsal teams to compete at the Coffs Coast Futsal Tournament. Both sides played well and only lost one game between them all day. The BDC Blue team showed particularly great form winning two of their games 19-0. To finish the day, both teams battled it out in the final with the BDC Blue team winning the day. Both teams should be very proud of their efforts and will see each other again at the regional competition next term. 

U13 Boys

The U13 Boys had a tough start to the day as they came up against the two U14 teams in their draw first up.

It was a good experience against the older boys & had them battle-hardened when it came time to come up against the teams their age.

They would go onto win the remaining games, including the final against Bellingen.

U14 Boys

Continued their dominant display in futsal competitions this year as they went through the competition undefeated. John Paul College pushed them all the way in the final after our boys accounted for them 6-0 earlier in the day. A late goal sealed the win & progression to the next round.

U15 Boys

The 15's boys competed valiantly at the recent Futsal tournament coming runners up on the day to a strong Bellingen High School team. This was an extremely impressive result given the boys were pressed for numbers calling upon players that had played many games the day before. Many of these players were identified and given invitations to the Futsal trials that will occur in Brisbane later this year.

U16 Boys

The U16's boys Futsal took the court last Friday in an extremely strong competition. The boys competed fiercely throughout the day, displaying an impressive balance of skill, determination, team and moments of individual brilliance. The boys were able to overcome Bellingen High school in the final to be winners of the day with all players being invited to compete at the invitational tournament later this year.

Bill Turner Football


A 3rd round match up against Coffs Harbour High School saw a very tense & entertaining contest take place. BDC took an early lead after Logan Sambrook took control of a through ball and calmly rounded the keeper. As the boys settled into the game, they began to grow with confidence, gaining more time on the ball higher up the field. Unfortunately, we started the 2nd half slowly by letting a goal kick bounce twice which proved costly as the opposition striker finished the chance. A second goal soon to Coffs High soon after undone the hard work our boys had done to set up the game. As we pushed for an equaliser, we had a number of great chances which were met by equally great saves. An effort all the boys can be proud of. The final score finishing in a 2-1 defeat.


The Girls Bill Turner team have progressed through to the next round of the national competition after achieving a well deserved 2 nil victory over Bellingen High School. The Girls had the bulk of possession in the first half creating a plethora of chances that were snuffed out by an impressive defensive display by Bellingen, leaving a scoreless first half. Early in the second half a well directed Bellingen cross ended up catching the hand of a BDC defender resulting in a penalty. An incredible save from goalkeeper Maja Robson saw the penalty saved and within a few minutes the BDC girls were able to capitalise on an opportunity and went 1-0 up courtesy of a Phoebe Oliver tap in. Shortly after the girls went 2-0 up with Phoebe Oliver pressing the line and cutting a dangerous ball into the box that deflected off a Bellingen defender into the goal. An exceptional effort by the girls who now await the winner of the last remaining regional match.

Primary Rugby Union 7’s

The BDC U10 and U12 rugby teams heading to Crescent Head to play in the regional finals of the state 7’s competition.

Both teams played well throughout the day in some tough competition. 

The 12’s finished in 3rd position and went into a play off round for 3/4 spot, after 14 mins of great rugby the game against Aldavilla PS finished at 4 all, it was decided to call it a draw for 3rd position.

The 10’s finished in second place and went into the final against St Augustines, the score line went back and forwards throughout the fast 14 mins with a 3 all draw being the final result. Equal winners!

Thank you to Jon Kahler and Toby Martin for coaching the teams and to all the parents and grandparents who attended in the cold wind to support our teams.

NSWCIS girls 15&U AFL

Halo Campbell (7) headed down to Albury on Monday and Tuesday to play for the NSWCIS team at the NSW All Schools AFL championships.

They played in incredibly harsh conditions with the rain, wind and freezing temperatures.

The girls all played exceptionally together winning all but one of their games with that only being a point between them. 

To top off a couple of days of AFL the girls team won the championships. 

It was an incredible experience for Halo.

NSWCIS girls Basketball

Keira Williams (12) represented NSWCIS Basketball at the NSW All schools state championships at The Hills Stadium in /Sydney on 6th June. 

They were very hard fought games with CIS going down in the final game by 2 points on the buzzer.

Congratulations Keira.
