Update from the Sports Coordinators

Written by SMC Administrator. Posted in Sport/Activity Featured, Sport/Activity News, Timeline

Great news, everyone! We’ve been given the go-ahead to open our Term 3 Junior and Senior Sports registrations. What a great feeling to be back to (almost) normal!

As you can imagine, things will look and work slightly differently when the rosters start back up. Over the past couple of weeks, the Sports department has been working on a school-specific return to sport strategy. Taking into consideration the guidelines and recommendations outlined by our respective Junior and Senior Sporting Associations (JSATIS and SATIS), state sporting organisations, as well as local government, we are confident our safety guidelines and protocols will enable the safe return to school sport for all of our students.

Once confirmed and signed off, we will share all of the relevant information and guidelines to ensure players, parents and officials can return to sport in a safe and practical manner. Compliance will be a key factor in ensuring everyone’s safety, so we ask all players and parents to please familiarise themselves with the guidelines, especially when visiting other schools and/or venues.

Regional basketball tournaments

We have not yet received any correspondence from Basketball Tasmania regarding the regional and state tournaments. If they go ahead, we will send out separate registrations.

Listed in the table below are the sports offered in the Junior School for Term 3. We are still awaiting confirmation of a starting date for basketball, and I will update this as soon as it is received. The hockey roster is being offered by Hockey Tasmania in place of the Term 2 roster – this is an independently run roster and there is a fee for families. Further information will be emailed to families shortly.

Senior School sport

Listed in the table below are the Term 3 sports on offer for the Senior School. At this stage, we are still working on a start date for the Year 7-12 Southern SATIS sports (Basketball and AFL), which will hopefully be in Week 2 or 3. The hockey rosters are run independently by Hockey Tasmania with confirmed starting dates in Week 2.

Just to note, the 1st grade hockey roster is usually run in Term 2 and on a different day. The new roster will be on a Wednesday afternoon with games starting at either 4.00pm or 5.00pm at the Tasmanian Hockey Centre. Entry of a team will be dependent on the number of registrations we receive.

Senior School athletics update

The Southern and State SATIS Athletics Carnivals are usually held in Term 3. At this stage a state carnival is highly unlikely but schools are considering the possibility of running a modified regional carnival should the government continue to ease restrictions. If given the go ahead, we will share all the relevant information with parents and students.

If you’re keen on trying out a new sport or just looking for something fun, social and active, then school sports is your best option. No previous experience is required and the rosters are only seven or eight weeks long. Best part, it’s also free! So why not have a chat to a couple of your friends and sign up?

The link to the registration form can be found here: Term 3 Sport Registrations – Senior School.

Alternatively, you can also head to the St Mary’s College website and sign up from there via the Sport/Activity Sign Up link.

If you have any questions or queries about Senior School Sport, please do not hesitate to contact me at mblignaut@smc.tas.edu.au or 6108 2560. I look forward to receiving all your sports registrations!
