St Mary's School Term 2 Sports Registrations
Hello to our fabulous St Mary's Community,
Welcome back to school everybody! Hope you have all had a great week so far, and life is feeling a little bit more normal for you all. 
Over the past few weeks, there has been all sorts of information being sent through from the various sporting codes, along with regular updates from Sport Bay of Plenty. 
I am now pleased to say that we have been given dates around when the three sports that St Mary's are participating in this term, Hockey, Netball and Basketball, are kicking off. (or passing off haha!)


  • Netball - 17th/18th July (Last weekend of school holidays), and will go for 10 weeks
  • Basketball - Start 8th June (Very soon!) and still awaiting an end date
  • Hockey - Start 13 June - still awaiting end date but expecting end of September/middle of October. 
There are still a few last minute bits and bobs coming out daily, including pricing for the seasons, so I will make sure you are all informed as soon as I know.
I also wanted to give everyone another week to put their child's name forward for one of these sports. Please let me know your child's name, year level and which sport they would like to play and I will make sure everyone is in a team. 
It would be awesome to have as many students as we can, playing some sort of sport this term. We already have had a great response, and with all that has gone on lately, will be a perfect opportunity for our kids to get out amongst it and enjoy either a new sport they haven't tried before, or to get more experience in a sport they know and love.
Please email me on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., with any further registrations.
The Sports Co-ordinator's around our area of the Bay are all working together to come up with some awesome opportunities for the kids this year. So watch this space!
Look forward to meeting you all at various times over the coming weeks and if anyone has any other queries, please feel free to email me at any time.
Kind Regards,
Rachel Parry

St Mary's Sports Registrations Term 2 & 3, 2020

Hi All St Mary's Families,

This year St Mary's is offering Hockey, Netball and Miniball/Basketball, as our winter sports

Due to Covid-19 we are unsure when winter sports will be starting, because of this the sports registration process has changed.  If you could please fill out the Google Form, this will allow registration of the appropriate number of teams with each league before the close off date. Because winter sport may or may not take place this year, there will be no charge until we are 100% sure these sports will be taking place.  As soon as more information is available in regards to exactly when each sport will start, we will forward that to you.

Registrations will close on Monday 6th April.  So that we are able to get the correct number of teams and the balance of players per team right, late registrations will not be accepted.

Please CLICK HERE to register your child for this year's winter sports.
