Waikato Diocesan School has a fine reputation for its excellence in sports. A wide range of individual and team sports allows every student to find an activity she enjoys and to be physically fit. We cater for all students regardless of age, ability or aptitude. In fact, on most weekends throughout the year, Waikato Diocesan has a 78% participation rate in team sports across all codes in 2022.
We have a range of sports codes available, from netball, hockey, football, lacrosse and basketball to rowing, equestrian, cycling, tennis, cricket and water polo.
Top facilities (including a school fitness centre) and expert teachers and coaches help our students to discover their interests and nurture their talents across all levels.
Many of our students have gone on to represent their city, region and country in their chosen sporting codes.
