Woodcrest State College is continuing to build a tradition of excellence in sport. Since 2010 we have structured sport into Academy Programs. The aim of the Academy and sports programs is to continue this high standard and maintain Woodcrest as a force in Queensland sport. ​​

With our 2 indoor stadiums, the support from local clubs and associations, new links with Queensland Volleyball, Ipswich Basketball, Springfield Brumbies and AFL Queensland; and our quality coaching staff Woodcrest has gone from strength to strength.
