My name is Jasmine Le Lievre – Adams and I am honoured to be CHAC’s Girls’ Basketball Captain for 2021. This will be my sixth year of participating in CHAC Basketball, and I look forward to encouraging and developing the basketball culture at CHAC. My goals as Basketball Captain are to inspire the girls to always give it their all, have fun and take this opportunity to create everlasting memories. I personally believe one’s true strength is shown when they have the support from not just their own team but also from others and therefore, I aim to encourage all teams – in particular, Senior Basketball teams to come watch earlier games to cheer on our younger girls.
I can’t wait to see to what the seasons hold for Girls’ Basketball, and I have full confidence that we will come away with amazing results. I would like to congratulate all teams who played their first game last weekend, with Year 7A, Year 7 Blue, Year 7 Red, Year 8 Blue, Year 9A, Year 9 Blue and Year 10A coming away with victories. Although 1st V and 2nd V teams did not come away with a win their performance was truly outstanding as both teams did not give up and gave it their all.

My name is Lucinda Bauer and I am the 2021 Girls' Football Captain.
This week marks the opening week of TAS sport and I couldn’t be prouder of the effort and achievements of all football teams. I would like to congratulate the girls for making a great start to the season with the Year 7/8A Team winning 4-1, the Year 9/10A team winning 3-0 and the 1st XI, unfortunately, they did not come away with a win, despite everyone’s best efforts against Saint Columban’s on Saturday.
We are looking forward to the upcoming games in Term 1. This week will see us playing against rivals St Paul's, at home and we hope to rally a large group of supporters to cheer on all three teams.
Through commitment to training, dedication, and hard work, we are striving to once again be crowned the TAS Girls’ Football Champions for in 2021.

My name is Ruby Pittorino and I have the privilege of being Girls’ Tennis Captain for 2021. Firstly, I would like to give a warm welcome to all new players and their families joining us at CHAC. I would also like to welcome back our returning players. Our season has started off strong with an overall win over St Columban's on Saturday. Five out of our six teams brought home a win for CHAC with an unfortunate narrow loss of only three games for our 3rd IV girls. With only a limited number of training sessions so far this term, this is an encouraging result achieved by all our teams. A special shout out goes to the Intermediate A team for an outstanding win over St Columban's, winning all six sets. A great start for the season!
My goals for this term is that each of our six teams give it their all every weekend. By doing so, this will give us the best chance at being a contender for the premiership in 2021. But most importantly, I would love to see the girls supporting each other, having fun, and enjoying the game of tennis.

Hi there. My name is Dylan Finch and I have been selected as Cricket Captain for 2021. While it is a young team this year, we have all worked hard and I am confident in our ability to perform well, and I know that we are all hoping for fine weather in the following weeks. After a few training and trial sessions earlier in the year, I believe that the boys in all cricket teams are ready to come forward and put a good performance in each Saturday. I would also like to give a quick shoutout to the 3rd XI Cricket boys for all the hard work and commitment they have shown in preparation to defend their premiership from 2020.
It has been a great weekend this weekend in round one against Columban’s for most teams, with winning points across the board for all. However, unfortunately, due to the playing conditions upon arriving at St Columban’s, the 1st XI team, 3rd XI Cricket boys and the Intermediate A teams all had forfeits by St Columban’s, as the pitches were not in any condition to be played on. While this is not an ideal start to the season, I am sure that everyone will agree that it is advantageous to keep our energy and spirits up going into round two, as we have a tough weekend ahead. Despite the forfeits, our teams that did play, 2nd XI, Intermediate B and C teams had a great weekend, with all three teams gaining wins in round one, which is an excellent effort considering this is the first round of the season.
I wish all teams good luck in our upcoming games, and once again, I voice my confidence in some good performances this year.

After the first week of sport concluded, it can be seen that the CHAC Volleyball boys have had an excellent outing. Congratulations to all the boys for their pre-season efforts as well as attending the bye weekend training session, the effort has obviously paid off. It is excellent to see that this season, CHAC has entered the highest number of teams into the volleyball competition with a massive 20 teams from only six year-levels. The first weekend of competitive volleyball has yielded great results with the boys winning 17 of their 18 outings, with a total of 63 out of 68 sets won. A special congratulations must go out to all our A division teams, including the 2nd V, as they conceded no loss over the weekend, losing only 1 of our 18 sets played.
