Sporting Opportunities


Throughout the year we have a large number of inter-school sporting events. These are either Marlborough regional events, Seddon School events or Seddon/Ward combined events. They include:

  • Athletics

  • Swimming

  • Cross Country

  • Mountain Bike Madness

  • Rugby 7's

  • Hockey Festival

  • Year 7 & 8 Interschool Sports Days


Hockey is incredibly strong at Seddon School and we generally have teams from Year 3 - 8. We have amazing parent coaches and managers who do a fabulous job with our students. Trainings are either held at lunch-time or straight after school depending on coach availability. Games are generally on weeknights at the Hockey Turf in Blenheim


Netball is becoming much strong here in Seddon. This year we had teams in all age categories from Year 3 - 8. Our teachers and parents do our coaching and students play either on Friday afternoon or Saturday morning. at the main netball courts.


Each year we tend to enter a few basketball teams in the Term 3 competitions. These are coached either by teachers or parents and trainings are held during lunch breaks. Games tend to be on weeknights.


Seddon School itself does not put in rugby teams - however the local Awatere JAB is incredibly strong and has multiple teams in all age bands. Trainings are after school and games are on Saturdays.


We have a number of touch teams who enter the competition each year. Our parents manage and coach these teams. Games are at different times and coaching tends to be after school.
