Sport and Fitness
Student participation in sport and recreation is encouraged as it provides a healthy component for life balance and an opportunity for team spirit.
The Student Association oversees clubs and societies including the formation and support of sporting and recreational groups including the Campion College Rowing Crew. The College supplies sporting and gym equipment for use by the students. The main sport played on campus is football/soccer, as it allows for mixed competition as well as plenty of excitement. The jewel in the crown of Campion’s soccer competitions is the annual gala-style President’s Plate. The tournament is always a wonderful occasion packed with colour. Weekly swing dancing during semester is also very popular and there are weekly basketball and volleyball games held on or near the college grounds depending on the time of year. Campion also competes in the annual Cardinal’s Cup futsal tournament for Catholic groups in Sydney and the Classics Society hosts an annual ‘Olympic Games’ on campus.
There are also a number of sporting and fitness facilities close to campus. The Toongabbie Leisure Centre is a commercial gym located nearby on Tucks Road and offers squash and gymnasium facilities. Check with the Student Life Coordinator to see if membership deals for students are available. A public swimming pool is located in Dunmore Street, Wentworthville, near the Cumberland Highway. Sporting ovals on Binalong Road (near the Toongabbie Public School) are also available for use.
