Each year Belmont Intermediate School participates in the Intermediate School Sports Camp held at Totara Springs, located 10 minutes out of Matamata. Teams of around 35 students compete against other schools in more than 35 sporting events. Camps start on a Monday afternoon and finish on Friday at lunch time.
Whilst these camps are competitive, they also give students the opportunity to enter events that they would not normally have the opportunity to participate in.
Sports included in the camp are basketball, volleyball, soccer, hockey, darts, bowls, tennis, netball, rugby, touch, triathlon, cross country, athletics, kayaking, cage soccer, petanque, croquet, hole in one golf, chess, softball, draughts, swimming, wall-ball plus the Sports Camp’s unique Scramball and Cheer Night.
The majority of the selected team are Year 8 students, however some Year 7 students maybe selected.
To assist in the selection of students for a team covering such a wide range of sporting skills criteria such as sportsmanship, fitness level, experience, commitment and attitude, up to date in school work and homework, behaviour, time management, team ethos and commitment to school values are used.
