Aotea College participates in College Sport Wellington Competitions and they currently have a vaccine mandate for school sport. 

We are waiting for confirmation from Hockey Wellington and Kapi Mana Netball as to their requirements.

Please find the following information from CSW:

Following the Government’s announcement that Wellington will be entering the ‘Orange’ level of the COVID Protection Framework (Traffic Light system), the Board of College Sport Wellington have confirmed that all sanctioned competitions and events in Term One 2022 will be restricted to fully vaccinated participants only.  The Board also agreed that only fully vaccinated spectators (over the age of 12) will be permitted to attend College Sport Wellington sanctioned events and competitions. This decision will then be reviewed at its next meeting in mid-March, with a view to the winter season and taking into account the latest Government advice.

Please attend trials, pre season training (some sports i.e Rugby use preseason for team selection) or meetings for your chosen sport. Please contact the Sport Department for further information if needed.

We want to ensure that you are given every opportunity to participate in the Sport/s of your choice.  The sports department will try to place every student in a team where possible. If a student is not able to be placed in an Aotea College team, we will endevour to put students into a combined team with another college. 

Aotea College students participating in sport can expect to receive:

Shared playing time for all players at practices and at games regardless of ability and this will be balanced across the season (the exemption to this is for first teams Year 9-13: namely Senior A and Junior A after consultation with the sports office). The aim for first teams is that students get good playing/training time and development throughout the season. The exception is when a first team makes the playoffs, the coach can choose how to play the team, it is expected that the coach will discuss this with the team prior to the playoffs being played.

Sports Uniform Bond: In 2022 we have a uniform bond of $50. $45 will be returned when the sports uniform is handed back to a member of the sports department. $5 is kept for re stocking of sports uniforms. If a uniform is lost or damaged an additional charge will be added to the students account.

No student will be placed in a team and/or issued a uniform unless payment has been received.

Registration fees cover the cost of Regional association and/or CSW competition fees, replacement gear/equipment, contribution towards maintaining and supplying new college sporting strip and sports administration.  

Note: one-off tournament fees are not included as part of the registration fee.

If you do not end up participating in the sport/s you have selected then your pre-paid registration fee will be refunded to you. This only applies before the season starts. Once a student plays 2 or more games for their team no refunds will be given.
