Enjoy yourself
Play within the rules

Respect the opposition and their supporters
Be gracious winners and dignified losers
Play hard BUT fair

Sports Registration

It is important to note that to be eligible to receive any School Award for sport you must represent Bishop Viard in that code – the exemption being where we are unable to offer a specific code which is sanctioned by NZSSSC (New Zealand Secondary Schools’ Sports Council).

When completing your registrations for sport we ask you to keep in mind that all our coaches and managers are volunteers, and in many cases take time off work to assist with sport. Therefore, it is important that you take your commitment seriously and make yourself available for all practices and games unless otherwise arranged with your coach and manager.

All sport codes and teams are subject to numbers and availability of coaches and managers.

Please note that the competition days stated are set on historical information and may change slightly – however all students will be notified if this occurs.

Player code

I agree to abide by the rules and regulations set by the college. I will accept the schools selection policy. I will commit to attending all scheduled trainings and games and always inform the Coach /manager of any absence. I will always wear the correct and clean uniform. I will pay the appropriate fees as required by the school. I understand that my attendance must be above 80% at all times to play sport. I understand that uniform/gears are the students responsibility and students will return.

Fees and Training / Game Details

Please think carefully when committing yourself to a sport or sports. Sports fees will be charged upon registration and due before the start of the season. Please do not send any money with sports registrations. Refunds will only be issued if we are unable to place your son / daughter in a team.

Please note these will not include the cost of one off events or costs associated with teams or individuals travelling to tournaments.

Summer Sports - Your registration for summer sport covers both Term 1 and Term 4 and will be billed at the end of Term 1.

Winter Sports - Your registration for winter sport covers both Term 2 and Term 3

NB: For all students a condition of selection into a Premier Team will be their availability to attend Tournaments. No refunds of fees or tournament week deposits for withdrawal.​​​​​​​

No Pay No Play

The Fees that we charge are dependent on the Team Registration cost and the number of students involved in each code. So we will send out an invoice for the specific amount once we know these details.
