Our programme is open to all players, regardless of their ability, age or previous experience. The football season takes place between Terms 2 and 3.
Boys’ competitive teams play in various grades of the Mainland Football Junior competitions. Girls’ teams are entered in Wednesday sport competitions. These teams are selected towards the end of Term 1. All First XI teams play on Wednesdays in the Premier School Competition.
A Middle School XI (Years 9–11) and a Senior College XI (Years 12–13) are also entered in the Wednesday sport competitions for those players who are not selected for a competitive Saturday team.
We had a successful season in 2017, with our First XI Boys’ and Girls’ teams both making it to the final of the Canterbury Premier Secondary Schools competitions, and the boys winning their grade. Both teams also competed at the Premier national tournament.
St Andrew’s College had 17 players selected for Canterbury representative teams from Years 8–13, with three players selected for New Zealand underage football teams. Six players were also selected for the Canterbury men’s and women’s senior National League teams.
