Our Aim: To provide a range of sporting opportunities for our students across the main sporting codes

Sports Team Update

Primary School Sport is evolving with the latest research and Covid 19. Many of the major sporting codes have moved away from Representative teams and are focusing on participation and enjoyment. Locally we have lost Project Energize, a joint initiative between the Waikato District Health Board and Sport Waikato to get children out there and active. We have found post-Covid the numbers have dropped with students participation. This has affected the number of sports teams that we have been able to field. A number of our students have missed out on being involved in a range of sports.

There are a number of sports that can be provided by clubs that will allow our students the opportunity to be involved in sport rather than missing out. Our local clubs have a huge amount of resources and funding available to them. They have expert coaches with world-class experiences behind them.

There are some sports that don’t have clubs and the school will continue to provide opportunities for those students. Sports like Water Polo, Flipper Ball, Netball and Volleyball. St Joseph’s will continue to support the Saints Sports Club for Years 7-8.

We thank you for your understanding and support as we try to provide sporting opportunities for all our students. Any sports enquiries should be directed to:

AIMS GAMES

AIMS Games Update for 2020 Anchor AIMS Games was scheduled to return to Tauranga in September 2020 but has been cancelled due to the implications of COVID-19… Returning in 2021 from 4 – 10 September.

Every September, many thousands of 11 to 13-year-olds gather in Tauranga to compete against the best of their age in a variety of individual and team sports. For many, this is their first experience of a super-scale international sports event, complete with an opening ceremony, professional live stream coverage and world-class facilities. Anchor AIMS Games encourages an active life, fair play, and participation across a variety of sports. Many professional Kiwi athletes have come through the Games on their way to specialisation and achievement on the world stage.

This year we are pleased to be sending a number of students to the following events:

  • Year 7 Girls Cross-Country
  • Year 8 Girls Cross-Country
  • Junior Men’s Artistic Gymnastics
  • Junior Women’s Artistic Gymnastics
  • Junior Advanced Women’s Artistic Gymnastics

Good luck to all participating athletes!
