Sports

Emmanuel participates in the Men’s and Women’s Inter College Competition (ICC) and has a proud tradition of strong performance in competing for the Men’s Old Collegian’s Cup and the Women’s ICC Sports Shield. Despite having lower resident numbers than single-sex colleges, Emmanuel regularly places in the top three positions in both the men’s and women’s competitions.

ICC sport is competitive, but is open to all skill levels. Trials, training and competition usually last around two months, so involvement is not too time-consuming. If you’re not participating, some of your most memorable moments at College will be supporting your fellow Blue Dogs from the sidelines, proudly wearing the Blue and White.

Emmanuel is proud to host an annual Sports Dinner, where the accomplishments of our athletes in the ICC are recognised. The endeavours of those who compete in state, national and international levels in their respective sports are also celebrated.

Emmanuel is the only college in Australia to host an annual International Rugby 7s tournament. Organised by students in conjunction with the University, teams from around the country take part in a memorable weekend of sport and socialising.
