Waiheke High School Sport


We believe that sport gives our Waiheke High School students a chance to be fit, active and social within our school sporting codes and timetables.

For some students, it means participating in something new with friends or as individuals.

For others, it means training hard to excel in their sport to take their abilities further.

Either way, Waiheke High School aims to offer students options to enjoy sport in a recreational or competitive way - giving students those valuable life skills of discipline, sporting skills, commitment, a positive attitude and leadership.

We offer internal school sports competitions throughout the year, and also take teams and individuals over to Auckland to compete in central zone (years 7 and 8) and College Sport (years 9-13) one day tournaments and leagues.

I will:

  • Encourage my child to play within the rules and respect officials’ and coaches’ decisions

  • teach my child to respect the efforts of their opponents

  • remember that children learn best by example so I will applaud good plays/ performances by both my child’s team and their opponents

  • give positive comments that motivate and encourage continued effort

  • support my child’s efforts and performance

  • thank the coaches, officials and other volunteers who give their time to conduct the event for my child

  • help when asked by a coach or official

  • respect the rights, dignity and worth of all people involved in the game, regardless of their gender, ability or cultural background.

I will not:

  • I will not arrive at the venue intoxicated or drink alcohol at junior matches

  • use bad language, nor will I harass players, coaches, officials or other spectators

  • make contact with other parents around team selection and player performance

I will:

  • always play by the rules

  • never argue with an official. If I disagree with a decision I will inform the captain, coach or manager during a break or after the competition

  • control my temper. I understand that verbal abuse of officials and other players or deliberately distracting or provoking an opponent is not acceptable or permitted behaviour in any sport

  • work equally hard for myself and my team

  • be a good sport and applaud all good plays whether they are made by my team or the opposition

  • respect the rights, dignity and worth of all participants regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion

  • thank the opposition and officials at the end of the game

  • comply with anti-doping policies.

team selection policy

  1. Students must listen out to notices in assembly or whanau time, and attend any relevant meetings to sign up.

  2. Where possible students will be given the opportunity to trial for their chosen sport. All trials will be advertised through assembly notices at least one week before the trial date.

  3. Team selection will be based on the performance at trials, but also on the commitment to training, communication with coaches/sports coordinator and behaviour at school.

  4. Students will not be selected if they do not attend training or if they have any serious behaviorual issues at school.

  5. Where numbers are limited, students will automatically be selected for that sport, unless there are issues with behaviour within school, a lack of commitment to training or not enough numbers to form a team.

  6. Events will be cancelled if students fail to attend training.

  7. Students will be given a fresh start at the beginning of each school year. Previous year’s experience may however be used to place them in appropriate trial teams.
