Water Polo

Coordinator:Mrs Elaine Ripamonti

St Peters water polo teams continued their fantastic start to the season with wins for our Opens and 15s team. All girls played with great determination and strength on the ball and, despite some losses, their water polo skills are already showing improvement this season. Girls commitment to improving their swimming fitness is evident, with our players being able to fight for goals right up until the final whistle.

Softball

Coordinator: Ms Emy Hunstman

QGSSSA Junior Softball had a bit of a false start to the season this week with the first game day cancelled due to conditions of the Downey Park diamonds following significant rain. As such, our first round of games will now be today, Thursday 26 October, and the missed rounds will be made up on Tuesday 7 November instead. Training for all teams will always be on regardless of weather. The game day draw and transport details are now on the St Peters App.

Trials for the 2018 QGSSSA Senior Softball season will take place on Thursday 9, Tuesday 14 and Thursday 16 November from 6:15–7:30am at Harts Road Oval. These trials are for all girls who want to be considered for our Opens, Senior A and Senior B teams next year. Girls have been emailed a link to sign-up for more information.

Badminton

Coordinator:Miss Danielle Appleton

Years 7–9, it’s competition time! Please double check the St Peters App for information regarding game times and venues for Saturday 28 October. All the best for this weekend!

Tomorrow, Friday 27 October, is the start of our touch pre-season for 2018. Girls who wnat to be in our touch teams next year should come to Mayer Oval from 3:30–5:00pm to play some warm up games.

Starting next Monday 30 October, the Girls Football program will run a four-week, five-a-side Football tournament for any girl wanting to play in 2018. No previous experience is necessary.
