Summer Weekly Sport Trials 

Andy Gibson —

Please see the schedule above and below so you know when and where your trials are.

Weekly Summer Sports at South Hagley Park 2018

Dear Parents / Caregivers

Your child has indicated that they would like to represent Cobham Intermediate in the weekly summer sports competition held at South Hagley Park during this term. Students will be travelling by bus, departing from school at 12.45pm. Games begin at 1.45pm and should conclude by 2.30pm approx hopefully allowing students to return to school by 3.00pm. There are Seven weeks of competition this year on the following dates:

· 13 February Start

· 27 March Finish

Each player is required to contribute TBC ($50-$60) towards the transport costs for this competition. This cost will be finalised once trials have been completed and I can accurately price the bus. We are limited to the number of teams entered into the competition there will be players who miss out on selection. Because of this you are not required to pay until teams are finalised after trials. So please don’t pay anything to the office at this stage.

Trails will begin week 2. Please see below the schedule of trial days for each sport. We are aware this is a very condensed trial period and we stress to all students to attend at least one trial. We have tried to allow students the opportunity to trial for multiple sports so no two sports will have clashes twice. Girls Cricket begin their trials Friday week 1.

Please meet the teacher in charge at the following locations at 12:30pm for lunchtimes.

Volleyball – behind room 11

Touch – Meet on the soccer field

Futsal – Meet in the hall

Softball – Meet in front of playgroud (Grass side)

Boys Cricket – Cricket nets (please bring own gear)

Girls Cricket – Cricket nets

Each trial will be at Lunchtime (potentially after school) for some and will begin at 12.30pm so please make sure you are prompt so there is plenty of time to view you all. **Please note that there are two sports trialing at the same time on multiple days.

Any enquiries specific to the sport please email the teacher in charge:

  • Boys Cricket – Mr John sebastian.john@cobham.school.nz
  • Girls Cricket – Mrs Hetherington michelle.hetherington@cobham.school.nz

For your child to compete on Tuesday afternoons payments must be made before the 16th February or your child will not be able to attend, unless a prior arrangement with the office is discussed. Please don’t make payment until your child has been given formal notice of his/her selection. Payment instructions will be sent out with selection confirmations.

Teams will be posted on the school sports website on Friday 9th February due to trials finishing the day before. If your child is selected you will be notified via email no later than 6pm. The competition begins the following Tuesday 13th Feburary.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to email me or the teacher in charge of your child’s sport they are trialling for thank you.

Kind Regards
