This weekly competition is for Years 5&6 only.
Friday 19 February – Friday 8 April 2016. Entries close 5pm 11 February.
– 2.15pm
South Hagley Park
  1. Weekly sport will be played at South Hagley Park commencing by 1.15pm. It is suggested that schools aim to leave in the lunch hour to be there by 1pm for warm up and organisation. Please advise the opposition if you are unable to start by 1.15pm so that neither team is waiting for the other. 
  2. Weekly sport is competitive, and all competitions will reflect this by being drawn in either a round robin format, culminating in a climactic event (eg finals and play-offs) if weather conditions allow this, or a league table format where final standings are taken once all weeks are completed. 
    If by half time in any game the teams are separated by a large margin, then it is suggested that the score is taken at that time and in the second half teams are mixed. Remember our primary aims are ENJOYMENT AND PARTICIPATION. 
  3. Schools should advise the Sports Director well in advance if it is known that a team will be unavailable on a particular day and at the latest by 1pm on the day before the competition. This information will also be sought at the time entries are taken, and, when possible, incorporated into the draw. 
  4. Supervision: Each Rippa and Teeball team must be under the supervision of an adult. At least one adult per six volleyball teams, and one adult per two futsal teams is required. It is the responsibility of the school to ensure supervision is adequate. 
  5. Refereeing/UmpiringOnly one official score is to be taken (this saves having two different scores). It is suggested that each school takes responsibility for one half of the game. 
  6. Uniform: Teams should be in a school sports uniform. 
  7. Cancellation: The Sports Director is to make a decision regarding cancellation before 11.00am. The decision will be made in conjunction with the Christchurch City Council which controls the playing areas of Hagley Park. Schools will be e-mailed by 11.15am and can also check our website The SportCheck cancellation text messaging service is also available. 
    If under extraordinary circumstances such as a sudden unexpected deterioration of weather then cancellation may occur right up to final moment possible to stop buses leaving for schools. Schools are to order or cancel buses direct. No school is to take responsibility for the decision not to play. This is unfair on the opposition team. Schools will be fined if defaults and withdrawals do not comply with our rules. 
Please do not phone the Sports Director’s office for updates. An e-mail (to the address the Sports Co-ordinator has indicated) and a text message (for those who have signed up) will be sent as soon as a decision is made. The website will also be updated.
  1. Defaults: 
    1. Must be avoided except for genuine and serious reasons. When they are 
      unavoidable the opposing school must be notified (by the school that has defaulted) by 1pm on the day before competition (eg Thursday for Friday sport). The Sports Director must also be informed immediately the decision is made. 
    2. The latest acceptable time to advise an opposing school of a default is 1pm on the day before play. Fines for defaults are in place for 2016 (see page 7). 
    3. If a default occurs by a school without notifying their opposition as to the cause of the default: 
      i) the school that was defaulted against contacts the Sports Director within 48 hours.
      ii) the Sports Director will contact the Sports Co-ordinator seeking a reason for the default, with a copy mailed to the Principal. 
  2. Each team listed first in the draw is to download a “printable scorecard” from our website ( and take to the game. It would also pay for all teams to have these with them each week in case the other team forgets to do so. Each school has a code to enable them to enter their scores on the website. If the other team has already entered the result and you do not agree with it you will have to e-mail the Sports Director. 
  3. Grading of players Players may play up a grade, but cannot play down a grade. 
  4. Canterbury Softball may be able to assist with equipment. Teams are to supply bases, 
    gloves, chest protectors, face masks, helmets and tees. 
The credibility of the mid-week sporting competitions depends upon quality administration from all schools and the Sports Director’s office. Continued and future participation in sport by primary age children is often dependent upon quality sporting experiences.
Should individuals or schools believe this policy has been infringed by an opposing school, and has been unable to satisfactorily resolve the situation by mutual discussion, they should advise the Sports Director in writing of the circumstances leading to the infringements. The Sports Director will then take whatever action is considered appropriate.

The Summer Weekly Sports are competitive, results are kept and compiled and the top three teams in each grade are rewarded with certificates. In addition, teams with full fair play points may receive a certificate.
It is the responsibility of all teams in all sports to ensure that the results are entered into the SportsRunner draws programme on the Primary Sports Canterbury website. Each school can
choose whether they give their access code to all coaches or if one person enters all results for their school.
As well, it is recommended that the Sports Co-ordinator from each school makes all results available to their school by printing off the points sheets from the Sportsrunner area of the Primary Sports Canterbury website each week. Alternatively, students, parents and teachers can access the information from the website.
The website is and accumulative results and scores are posted on this each week. This task of checking results could be delegated to students to ensure all have been entered correctly.
Points for all games
Game competition 
- points will be awarded as 10 for a win, 5 for a draw, 2 for a “bonus” loss of less than 5 points for all sports and 0 for a loss of more than 5 points.
PLUSFair Play competition points based on 10 points for high a score through to 0 for a poor score - see separate page for criteria for awarding/deduction of points. These are two separate competitions.
SCORING AND FAIR PLAYGame Competition points will be awarded as 10 for a win, 5 for a draw, 2 for a “bonus” loss
of less than 5 points for all sports and 0 for a loss of more than 5 points.
Fair Play Competition - points will be 10, with points deducted for unsporting behaviour (see criteria below) ie both teams will start with 10 points at the beginning of each game. This is to be separate from the points awarded for game competition.
Please read the criteria for Fair Play points carefully and ensure that all the referees/coaches/players from your school are aware of the criteria. The umpire/referee and two coaches should meet at the end of the game to decide upon both teams’ fair play points. The captain may also be involved in the decision if the school so wishes.
Criteria for Fair Play Points:
All teams start with 10 points for Fair Play and should only lose points for any acts of unsporting behaviour. The Fair Play points will be awarded by the coaches and the referee/umpire in consultation with each other. If there is no record of this given then the two teams will receive no points. If more than 5 points are lost in any one game the Sports Director will advise the school concerned of this.
The following are examples of how points can be lost:
  1. If all that happens in a 40 minute game are one or two minor infringements then the 
    team should only lose 1 point. All players must be named where a deduction of points occurs. 
  2. Swearing or abuse toward their own or opposing players 2 -3 points. 
  3. Swearing or abuse of a referee is more serious and should receive a 3 -5 point penalty. 
  4. Any individual instance of violence, depending on seriousness, should receive 2 - 3 points, while continued violence or instances involving several players 4 - 6 points. 
5. In the unlikely event of a game being called off then the offending team/s will receive a 10 point penalty ie 0 points awarded.
The scorecards will be marked on the front of the scorecard where is shows “Fairplay_______ /10”.
e.g. 3 points off for swearing, then 1 point off for throwing the ball away = 6 points at the end of the game.
IN ALL CASES WHEN POINTS ARE LOST, players must be identified or the points will not be deducted.

Referees: Teams are able to referee themselves. Alternatively, first named team to provide referee. Referee to keep score on scorecard provided and to ensure scorecards are signed.
Training hints for coaches:
  1. Train your players to always face the net. Players have to react and move quickly to keep the ball in front and between that player and the net. Lateral movement patterns should be introduced and practised e.g. side stepping, side shuffling and/or cross-over, instead of turning and running after the ball, and backpedalling instead of turning and chasing the ball. 
  2. Train your team to toss the ball high. This gives players more time to get ready to catch the ball and set up for the hit over the net. 
  3. When hitting the ball over the net you want the hitter to be standing about two metres off the net ready to run up and jump. The thrower should throw the ball up about half a metre off the net. 
  4. Train your team to hit the ball away from the opposition. The best places to hit the ball are the back corners and just over the net. 
  1. Teams play two games each Friday. 2 x 10 minute halves, 2 minutes half time, 5 minutes between games.

  1. No offside. 
  2. When the ball goes out across either sideline, play is restarted from a kick in (important to encourage the players to place the ball on the line before kicking it in).

  4. A 4 second time limit will apply with kick ins and also when the goalkeeper has the ball (Encourages players to restart quickly).
