Kia ora and welcome to the start of another exciting rugby season for 2018!
A big NX greeting to all the new Y7 players and their parents to NX-we have high hopes for another successful season with NX entering several tournaments and grades (dependent on numbers.) Below are the dates for this seasons school rugby so kids, please make sure you timetable these dates into your HW Diary so you are mega organised and are showing excellent time management skills! Please stay on top of your schoolwork and make sure your behaviour is of the highest standard. Northcross expects all players and parents to represent themselves, your family, the school and the community in an exceptional manner. This season is going to be a very busy one with plenty of new and exciting tournaments on. Finally, a reminder to all players and parents that the selection of players is very difficult given the quality of players and numbers here at Northcross. If you miss trainings/meetings without letting us know then that is one way we cut down the squads. Please always listen to the This Day Notices and constantly read them each day!
A players position in any team will be determined by the coach of that team and where he feels the player best serves the TEAM. It is very important that players and parents are aware of this before making the decision to play. Please refer to and read our Sports Selection Policies on the School Website and Code of Conduct Form.
This term we will start selecting our squads for the season. The teams you can trial for are as follows:
NH Champs Zone Day U45kg Boys (15 aside)
NH Girls 7’s Zone Day (Open Weight and U57kg)
NH Champs Zone Day U55kg or Open Weight Boys (15 aside)
IST U57kg 7’s Boys and Girls
Pre AIMS 7’s Tournaments (x2) Boys and Girls
AIMS Open Weight 7’s Team Boys and Girls
In 2018 we will again compete in the IST NH 7’s Cup and we will again be sending both Boys and Girls Open Weight 7’s Teams to the NZCT AIMS Sporting Championships in Tauranga.
Here’s to another exciting season and I really look forward to catching up with you all on the sidelines at some stage throughout Terms 1-3 for 2018! Please do not hesitate to contact me should you need any clarification of anything!
