The College enters teams in appropriate grades of the Canterbury Hockey Association weekly competition for both boys and girls. Games are played right through Terms 2 and 3 and in the holidays.
The Boys’ and Girls’ First XI teams compete in national tournaments during Winter Tournament Week. The Boys’ and Girls’ Second XI teams have the option to play in the local Nunweek Park tournament. Inter-school fixtures are also played.
All teams train on our own astroturf, with our two First XI teams also having a weekly training session together at Nunweek park. We run pre-season training sessions for interested players, as long as this does not conflict with the students’ summer commitment.
Elite hockey players are well catered for in our High Performance Sport Programme.
In 2017, our Boys’ First XI finished seventh at the prestigious Rankin Cup national tournament. Our Girls’ First XI won the Audrey Timlin Tournament, and will be competing in 2018 for the top combined Federation Cup. The Boys’ Second XI won the SSL Boys’ Division competition.
