Kia ora Whānau ma,

Registrations are now open for Summer Hockey, Soccer, Futsal, Touch Rugby, Teeball and Harriers.

Unfortunately we are no longer offering Flipperball or Softball as Summer codes as we have trouble finding enough players to fill a team. Cricket is now being run by the Manawatū Cricket Association with information here and registrations here.
If your child would like to play Softball, then you might like to sign up for Huia’s this year, register here

Harriers is a running club that is coordinated by some keen and fit parents that focusses on improving your child’s fitness and stamina. The benefits of distance running are of course the obvious fitness results, but also the confidence that comes from achieving goals and self-development from seeing the growth in personal best times.

Keen to coach?
We rely heavily on having parents or whānau members coach and manage each team. This can involve running a practise either before school, during lunch time or after school. But it mostly relies on managing substitutions on game day, contacting other parents of the team letting them know any details, giving out all the uniforms at the start of the season and collecting them back in at the end of the season. Let us know if you’d like to help out and you won’t have to pay any registration fees.

Uniforms
Upon registering for any sport at Russell Street School, it is crucial that you understand and agree to these care and borrowing guidelines.
-RSS sports uniforms are ONLY to be worn at weekly sports games or when representing the school.
-Care labels are followed to ensure the longevity of the garments.
-Any loss, significant damage or major discolouration 
will almost certainly result in the replacement cost and/or dry-cleaning of the uniform being met by the family. 


Payment
Please ensure registrations are completed through the online form and payment is made to either the Office, Internet Banking or by Credit Card through our new online shop. Your child will NOT be placed in a team until payment has been made/received or if you have any outstanding sports fees from the past season/s.

Registrations close on FRIDAY 28th SEPTEMBER 2018. (Last day of Term 3)
