Sporting activity complements the academic, cultural and spiritual dimensions of well-balanced young men.
Our programme fosters learning beyond the classroom, building life skills, confidence and essential qualities that boys require beyond their secondary school years.
Our point of difference from other schools is that all of our sports teams have a teacher aligned to them, either as coach or manager. This not only shows how committed our staff are to building all-round character, but also proves that our staff recognise that relationship building is vital between student and teacher.
Each year, our young sportsmen enjoy considerable success in regional and national competitions in both team and individual sports. All of our top sports teams in the major codes play in Hawke's Bay secondary school and Hawke's Bay senior men's competitions.
We have top-class sporting facilities at the College, including a large gymnasium, health and fitness training facility, over 12ha of training and playing fields, an all- weather floodlit multi-sports area, 25m outdoor swimming pool and 2.4km fitness course.
The College also has access to the nearby Hawke's Bay Regional Sports Park which has a world-class athletics track, designated sports fields and a hockey stadium with Tier 1 standard hockey turf.
