Top of the Table
CHAC is recognised as one of the most successful Colleges in our inter-school sporting competition, The Associated Schools (TAS), leading the way for student participation and results across all sports.
Our 2017 results stand testament to a sports program which has seen the College announced as the top Volleyball school in the TAS Competition for the second year in a row; the Champion Cross Country school for the second time in three years; and top of the table for Trimester 3 2017, which saw competition in Girls’ Touch Football and Volleyball, and Boys’ Basketball and Football (Soccer).
In 2017, we achieved a gold medal in the Junior Volleyball Schools Cup, as well as two silver and one bronze at the Australian National Volleyball Schools Cup.
Secondary students participate in The Associated Schools (TAS) sporting competition, with training held at the College before or after the school day, and matches played on Saturday mornings. TAS competition matches take place in the first three terms (trimesters) of each year, as well as three Carnivals for Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics.
Primary students participate in a Saturday morning inter-school competition in the Associated Schools Junior Competition (Junior TAS); a Brisbane-wide sporting competition involving 12 co-educational schools. CHAC students are also able to access District, Regional and State representations through the Lytton and Gateway Districts. Primary students participate in three CHAC and JTAS carnivals each year: Athletics, Cross Country and Swimming.

Other Sporting Competitions
CHAC regularly sends teams to other sporting competitions at the State and National level, including:
- The Junior Schools Touch Football Championship
- The Australian Schools Volleyball Cup
- The Junior Schools Volleyball Cup
- Cricket Development Tour to Melbourne
Students who have a high skill level in a chosen sport may elect to trial at the District level. If successful in making a District team, the student would then compete at the Metropolitan East Regional level, and could progress to State level.
CHAC has been involved in non TAS sports in the past including Australian Rules Football and Girls’ Football.
Sports Excellence Program
In Years 9 and 10, selected students who excel in the sporting arena may participate in a year-long study extension unit, to further extend their capabilities. The program is targeted at improving the fitness base and skills set of sport-minded individuals, with specific emphasis placed on those activities that are included within the TAS Sports Program. Concepts relating to optimising sports performance are included, as are areas such as human anatomy.
