Fair Play and Sportsmanship

Awatapu College is proud to be known as a school that promotes fair play at all times. The following is what we expect of our students, both on and off the sports field:
• Enjoy themselves
• Play within the rules
• Respect the referees, umpire and officials
• Respect the opposition and their supporters
• Be a gracious winner and a dignified loser
• Play hard but play fair

We also expect our supporters to follow the principles of fair play. The following are some guidelines that we expect supporters to adhere to:
• Be supportive of our players, no matter what the result or their personal performance
• Leave coaching to the coaches - players should be able to hear coaching instructions
• Show your support in a positive manner at all times
• Refrain from making comments to any referee/umpire and accept their decisions - without them there is not a game
• Refrain from passing negative comments to any parent or spectator
• Please make every effort to get our students to games and trainings on time
• Please stay a respectable distance from the field and refrain from viewing from behind the goal (if appropriate)

Enjoy each game - that's what sport is all about.

Sports Fees and Uniforms

As with any extra curricular activity, there may be fees associated with some sports. Fees help meet the costs of player registrations, uniform/tracksuit hire, equipment hire/maintenance and field hire/maintenance. Please click here to view the sports fees. 

As representatives of the College, we expect players to wear the correct sports uniform. When a player is placed into a team they are provided with an Awatapu College sports uniform. Additional uniform items are available for purchase from The Warehouse.

Parents/Caregivers We Need You!

Despite excellent support from staff, we cannot provide sufficient coaches/managers for all the teams we hope to enter. Team entries are controlled not by the number of students wanting to play, but by the number of coaches available. You will be fully supported by staff and funding is available for coaching courses/development to help you gain skills beneficial to your specific area. 

What is the commitment?

• One or two practice sessions a week and attendance at the weekly fixture
• Full support will be given by staff
• A Police Check is necessary

• Assist the coach and captain with ringing the team as necessary
• Looking after the gear and uniforms of the team
• Attendance at the weekly fixture
• Support for the coach and team members
