Sport at Selwyn

Sport is central to the spirit of Selwyn College, teaching life skills that will enable our students to soar and become valuable contributing members of society post school. Our vision is to foster a love of sport in all our students so that they remain physically active for the rest of their life.  We also recognise that sport offers many pathways and we endeavour to provide the rangatiratanga so that students who wish to pursue their sporting dreams can develop their potential.  We promote kotahitanga so that all students have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of team and individual sporting codes at both competitive and social levels for fun and fitness.   

2020 Winter Sports Information - COVID-19 UPDATE

SPORT IS BACK!!  Despite the disruption caused by the Covid-19 virus, Selwyn College will still be running a co-curricular sporting programme for students in 2020.  College Sport Auckland is working with School Sport New Zealand and Sport New Zealand as well as Nationals Sporting Organisations to work out how and when inter-school competitions can start.  Selwyn College will enter teams in these events.  In addition, sports clubs like the running and cycling clubs will still run and we will have a programme of social sport running at break times in Term 3.

The information coming out of the government - and therefore the sports organisations like College Sport Auckland - is changing so quickly (sometimes multiple times per day) so we have created a live document that you can view here which will have the most up to date information for each sport at any point in time - including any trial and practice dates and times.  This is your best source of sports information while we get our programmes up and running.

Sports Notices

Daily Sports Notices are posted on TV monitors around the school and are also read to students during mentor time each day. Most sports meetings are held during Break 1 in the Barfoot & Thompson stadium.  It's important that students pay attention to notices, in order not to miss details of meetings, sign-ups, practice times etc.  Defaults and cancellations are also in the daily notices.

We also post regular notices on our facebook page for parents and supporters.

Code of Conduct

To ensure the safety and enjoyment of all those involved,  players, coaches, managers, parents and supporters must abide by the Selwyn College Sport Code of Conduct at all times.

Facilities

We are very fortunate here at Selwyn to be surrounded by some of the best sporting facilities in Auckland. We have three quality irrigated fields, a full grass cricket pitch, Astro turfed tennis courts and the diamond in our crown the Barfoot and Thompson Stadium. The College has plans to further develop the sporting facilities in the near future.

The future is bright for Selwyn College Sport and our sporting potential,  so come join us and see how far you can go! 

Contact any of the friendly staff in the Sports Office if you have any questions about sport at Selwyn.
