Hockey Coordinator: Mrs Deborah Porter

Hockey is one of the sports offered as a winter sport. All Saints' College Junior School fields a number of teams in the local district competition.

For the younger members there is the Minkey competition which provides skills and games for the Under 7 and Under 9 age group. This is a non-competitive competition with the emphasis on developing skills, working as a team member and instilling a love of the game in the children. It is open to both boys and girls and we have a large number of both in the teams. This year the district has separated the 4 -5 year olds to give them a smaller group to play with and more opportunity to have a go! So we now have three teams in this competition.

For the Under 11s the competition is competitive and only girls can play in the girls' competition. We do have some boys in the Junior School playing in the town competition but, due to lack of numbers, are unable to field an All Saints' team. Points are awarded each week and the girls work towards a place in the finals. Last year we made it to the semi-finals in a very exciting season of competition.

At the community level the games take place on a Saturday morning. We train after school on a Wednesday.

Some of the girls have been selected to play in the Bathurst District sides so both they and the team benefits from their involvement in this stronger level of competition.


Netball Coordinator: Miss Victoria Matheson

Netball is one of the sports offered as a winter sport. Children from Transition to Year 6 are involved in different levels of skill development through to competition netball. Each year, All Saints' College Junior School enters a number of teams in the Bathurst Netball Association Competition.

Fun Net - There is an excellent introductory programme called Fun Net which is run by the Bathurst Netball Association. The emphasis is on developing skills and having fun. We encourage our Transition, Kindergarten and Year 1 children to join this excellent programme.

Netta - The Netta games are non-competitive weekly games with the aim being to provide an opportunity to play as a team, develop skills, learn all the positions on the court and enjoyment of the game. Girls up to 10 years may be involved in this form of netball and during the netball season the players rotate through all the positions on the court.

Transition Netball - Under 10s may also be involved in Transition Netball. The teams play full competition rules but with some interactive support from their coaches as they enter the competition phase of Netball. The girls will continue to play a variety of positions on the court with increasing amounts of court time in their preferred positions.

Netball - Each year we have teams entered in the Under 12s competition. At this stage the girls are generally playing in the positions on the court which best suit their defensive or attacking skills. We encourage sportsmanship, tactical and positional skills development and team cohesion.

Our involvement in Netball is very positive. We are fortunate to have fantastic help from parents and enthusiastic senior school girls who assist with the coaching. And, we have enjoyed some wonderful successes over the years.

Training takes place during After School Sport 3.30pm-4.30pm in Terms 2 and 3 and the Bathurst Netball Association Competition is run in Terms 2 and 3.

Each year a team is entered in the HICES netball selection day and on occasions we have friendly games with visiting schools.

We look forward to another positive and enjoyable season of Netball.


Rugby Coordinator: Mr Chris Jackman

All Saints' College Junior School offers rugby to boys during the winter terms. Boys do not play in a weekend competition but play in games arranged with other schools and rugby clubs. As rugby matches do not occur every week, boys are encouraged to still play in another sport as well. Training takes place at lunch times.

In 2009 we fielded teams in Under 7, Under 9 and Under 11 age groups. The numbers of teams will be determined by the level of interest.


Football Coordinator: Mr Chris Jackman

All Saints' College Junior School enters teams in the local Bathurst District Soccer Association during Terms 2 and 3. Soccer is open to boys and girls in Transition through to Year 6 and is played on a Saturday morning. Younger age groups play on modified fields with less players which allows for greater involvement from individuals. Teams increase in size as the players get older and the game begins to take a more structured form with a greater emphasis upon positional and tactical play. Student participation, enjoyment and skill development are the key objectives of the program. Training is held during After School Sport on Wednesday afternoon between 3:30 and 4:30.
