Kristin's sport programmes have a long-standing reputation for excellence, with students developing their physical ability, confidence, teamwork, and goal setting. Our high-performance sport programmes ensure athletes are holistically supported in both their academic and sporting pursuits.

We offer over 20 different sports at Kristin, and alternative sports are also supported through local clubs. Our highest participation is in Basketball, Football, Hockey and Netball, and we run one of New Zealand's largest and most successful school Snowsports programmes.

Development and high-performance programmes are offered across a range of codes to Middle and Senior School students – find out more about the Kristin Sports Academy and our High-Performance Programmes. There is an onsite physiotherapist who works from the well being centre and can be accessed by all students and staff.


Our Mission

To empower all students to be physically active for life and strive for excellence in all aspects of Kristin Sport. Team sports and individual representation will be supported, within a positive sporting environment that embraces all abilities.


Kristin Sport Values and Expectations

The sports field provides many opportunities for personal development, and sport – be it social or competitive – is widely recognised as a means of developing character. This cannot happen in isolation, however. Character must be taught – it must be taught by coaches, leaders and role models who demonstrate its value both on and off the field.  Kristin School: Where great sport happens.
