Sports - General Organisation
This sports guide outlines sporting opportunities at Hauraki School. While every effort is made to ensure details are correct, sometimes information is subject to change beyond our control. Please understand that some of these sports have been disrupted due to Covid and may not go ahead.
- Our overall sports coordinator is deputy principal, Mr Christopher Pipes firstname.lastname@example.org
- Please make sure you read fortnightly newsletters and this website for sporting updates.
- We are grateful for the assistance of parents and family in the form of coaching, managing and umpiring/refereeing. To ensure we can offer as many sports as possible, we need your support. Please tick the box when registering to indicate how you can help.
- All children in years 5 and 6 are strongly encouraged to play at least one representative sport.
- Fees: All fees are to be paid in full by the registration date as detailed for each sport.
- Practices: Team members must attend at least one training each week for the sport that you sign up to. Trainings may be at lunch times, outside of school hours or on the weekends. This is dependent on team placement and availability of the team coach. For all out of school sports, it is parents/caregivers responsibility to ensure that students are at practices and that they can be transported to and from games.
- Uniforms: All sports uniforms are provided by the school for the season. A rental fee of $10 is normally included in the registration fee. It is expected that these uniforms be looked after and returned clean and in good condition at the end of the season.
- All team members, parents, coaches and managers are required to sign a code of conduct at the beginning of each season.
