Types of sessions

Regional Sport Organisation Bookings 

Our Regional Sports Organisations (RSO’s) offer weekly sessions as well as activity days for year 5-10 age groups. Students will remain in their classes so there will be a wide range of skill and ability levels. Below are the current sports we have RSO’s available to take:

  • Basketball
  • Floorball
  • Futsal
  • Gymnastics
  • Netball/ Korfball
  • Ultimate Frisbee

Sport coaching sessions

Sport coaching sessions can be booked for four, six or eight weeks during term time. Students return each week to build on the skills they have learned in the previous week. You can choose one session per week (45 minutes) or back-to-back sessions if you want more time. If you choose more than one session, your group has the opportunity to learn more than one sport.

Come-and-try sessions

This is a chance for your group to try out individual sports. You can book in for just one visit, or book a session for multiple weeks to have the students to try out a new sport each week.

Activity day / One-off session

Activity days / one-off sessions allow the students to play multiple sports for just one day. The booking can be for a full day of activities (10am–2pm), or for just a few 45-minute sessions during the day. You can bring one class or your whole school. Activity days will allow your students to try multiple sports in one day. Activity days can include the use of the inflatables.

Multi-Sport Tournaments

Multi-Sport Tournaments are played on just one day. A year group (year 5’s or older) can come in and play multiple sports in a tournament format that has 5-8 games of 10 to 20 minutes. We provided referees for the sports at the same cost as the coaching sessions with the only added cost is $40 per hour for a staff member directing the tournament.

Sports that can be played in these Tournaments are: Badminton, Basketball, Dodgeball, Floorball, Futsal, Handball, Ki-o-Rahi, Korfball, Netball, Pickleball, Tchoukball, Turbo touch, Ultimate Frisbee, Volleyball
