Students at Dobroyd Point Public School have the opportunity to participate in numerous sporting knockout competitions. These competitions include Rugby League, AFL, Touch Football and Cricket.
The Paul Kelly Cup
The Paul Kelly Cup is the largest AFL primary school competition in New South Wales and the ACT and is open to students in Year 5 and 6. The Paul Kelly Cup consists of 12-a-side teams competing in round robin carnivals in the local area. Games are played on a smaller field using modified 12-a-side rules. This allows children who are new to the game to experience and enjoy AFL in a safe and fun environment. Local Paul Kelly Cup days are held in Term 1 and early Term 2. Winning teams progress to a regional final, normally completed in Term 2. The state final will take place at the end of Term 3 with sides from all over NSW and the ACT.
This year's Paul Kelly Cup will take place on Wednesday 21st March at Timbrell Park, Haberfield. We will leave school at 9am and be back about 2.00pm.
