4. Winter Sport Teams

Names of children who are playing a winter sport for school will be displayed on the sports notice board.  Anyone who has offered to coach a team will be notified next week and will be given a list of names for their respective team.  Some teams are a couple of players short and we will be looking for more players.

Some sport teams may not have enough players and we will endeavour to place them in a team with a club. If you wish for your child to play a sport and there is spaces in the team, please let Mrs Brien know.

If for some reason you withdraw your child from a sport, please let the Sports Coordinator know as this affects both the coaches and the team and involves a lot of paper work as each sport has to register all players and their contact details with their nominated sport associations.

Fees - once your child is placed in a team, these fees have to paid or in a payment plan before the competition starts.  Some codes have not yet given us their fees for the season.

If you have any old sports equipment and gear surplus to requirements, please donate them to our school for other children to utilise.  This applies to both summer and winter sports and any gear that comes in we will advertise in the newsletter e.g. football / rugby boots, cricket pads, bats etc.

Midget - the children who are in the midget grade go to a skills based session organised by Football Waitaki and it is usually on a Friday night at 4.00 pm.  These children will play under St Joseph's and be given a football top. Further information will follow.

Midget Players - Marco Alegre, William Allardice and Zachary Castro.

Other Grades - unfortunately we do not have enough children to make up teams in the higher grades and we will notify the children of a club they may want to join up with.

Fees - waiting for confirmation


Fun Sticks Grade - this is a skills based session for Yr 1 & 2 children from all schools and is run at the North Otago Hockey turf on Wednesday nights starting on Wednesday 6th May.

The Mini Sticks for Yrs 3 & 4 and the Kiwi Sticks for Yrs 5 & 6 is played on Wednesday nights starting on Wednesday 6th May.  The Kwik Sticks for Yrs 7 & 8 is played on Tuesday nights and starts on Tuesday 5th May.

As we do not have enough players to make a team in either of the above grades, we will forward your names to North Otago Hockey and they will place you in a team.  Our school will register your name and fees will be invoiced from St Joseph's, not the club you will be playing for.
