It is a busy term so here are the urgent sports notices. Please ensure boys are reading the daily notices and listening in assembly so they don’t miss out on any opportunities.
If you have ever wanted to be the leader of a rowing crew, now is your chance. We need a novice (hasn’t competed at Maadi Cup before) coxswain for a Nelson College Rowing Crew. No experience is necessary, just a will to learn and train hard. Please see Alethea in the Sports Office asap!
All boys should now be registered. If you want to play and have not put your name down, please see Alethea in the Sports Office today! Junior boys will be put into teams this week and games start next week. Trainings will be at lunch times. More information will be sent out once the teams are sorted.
All boys should now be registered. If you want to play and are not yet in a team, please see Mr Franklin in the PE Office.

Students interested in taking part in any athletics discipline – throws, jumps, sprints, and distance running – are encouraged to come out. We will train you for the upcoming Nelson College, Tasman, South Island Secondary Schools Meets. It is also good development for other sports. Training will be held Mondays and Thursdays at 3:25pm.

Event date is March 5th. Entries close Feb 22nd. We will be running heats in the popular events during the week prior to the event to ensure we can cater for everyone. You may enter up to 5 events and you will gain points towards the age group championship. Your 5 events may be 3 track & 2 field, or 2 track & 3 field. Please note the 80m is for seniors only. Run this and the 100m to be in consideration for the Majoribanks Shield.
Entry forms are upstairs in the gym. You must compete in at least 3 events to have the whole day out of class.
If you place 1st, 2nd or 3rd in an event you will be invited to compete at the Tasman Secondary Schools event on March 13th.

Registrations for this will be in a couple of weeks
