Welcome to Sport at Carmel College
Carmel College is privileged to have many talented young sports women across all year levels and a variety of sports. We aim to continue to develop their skills and knowledge through providing high quality coaches who encourage an environment where winning games is accomplished through a strong team culture based on the special character of our school.
There are currently over 20 sporting codes available across a range of different grades. Regardless of whether your goal is to win, learn new skills, make friends or just have fun – all or four – there is definitely something for you. The Sports and P.E. Department, teachers in charge, coaches, team managers, the Heads of Sport and Sports Council all devote time, energy and expertise to ensure that you have many exciting options.
We hope that you all will take advantage of the many opportunities that our sports and physical recreation programme provides and we look forward to seeing you all on the sports fields in whatever areas you chose to become involved in.
Please note: The information about each sport is a guideline only. It can change based on competition requirements. All fees are indicative only. They will be confirmed at the beginning of 2018. The weekly school newsletter will announce dates and times for each sport’s registration, including links to signups.

Codes of Conduct
During the course of the year there are a number of occasions where the school recognises the sporting achievements of its students. The Sports and PE departments generally hear of such successes but there are some girls who reach representative status outside of the school's domain, particularly in minor codes, which we don't know about. It would be great if you let us know about significant achievements.
Each year Carmel College Year 10 students and some Year 9 participate in the Mercy Cup. This is a tournament between St Mary’s College, McAuley High School and Carmel College in Netball, Basketball and Football. This year St Mary’s will be hosting this event on the 12 August. The competing netball team is 10/1, the basketball team is created from players from U17 & U15 and the Football team is comprised of Year 9 and 10 players who trialed at the start of the football season.
Each year Carmel sends a group of students to compete in the AIMS Games at Mount Maunganui. In 2017 the 8/1 Netball, Basketball, football and hockey team, and a number of individuals attended this week long event. The dates for this year are Sunday 9 September to Friday 15 September. For any individuals who are wishing to attend this event please get in contact with the Sports Department, parent help is crucial for this to go ahead.
Coaches and Managers
We are always in need of coaches and managers. Coaching support is provided before and during the season should you wish it. Teams are not possible if we do not have adult help. Please contact us if you can help in any way.
School events and school competitions are to be organized 2 months prior if applicable. 3-4 months for school National competitions. We need ample time to organize as letters need to be sent to the board of Trustees by the Sports Department. RAMS and EOTC (safety forms) are required by Senior Management 4 weeks before hand.
There are a number of sports we do not offer at school but we are more than happy to help students enter into various competitions, as a representative of Carmel. Any out of school events, where the student is not representing Carmel, i.e., club competitions or Nationals, need to be organised by parents and the school must be notified well in advance. This is ‘self-interest’ leave.
