PRIMARY SCHOOLS WEEKLY WINTER SPORT GENERAL INFORMATION
This weekly competition is for children in years 5, 6, 7, and 8 only.
  1. Weekly sport will be played at South Hagley Park, North Hagley Park, Nunweek Park and Table Tennis Stadium commencing by 1.15pm. Please advise the opposition if unable to start by 1.15pm so that neither team is waiting for the other.
  2. Mid-week sport is competitive, and all competitions will reflect this by being drawn in a round robin format and by culminating in a climactic event (e.g. finals and play-offs) if weather conditions allow this. 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 altered. Remember our primary aims are ENJOYMENT AND PARTICIPATION.
  3. The Sports Director will compile draws as soon as possible after entries are received and place on the website. For 2016 team entries will be limited as follows:
    THURSDAYS
    1 team per grade (up to 3 grades) in each sport for Years 5 & 6 1 team per grade (up to 3 grades) in each sport for Years 7 & 8
    FRIDAYS
    Grading roll under 400 1 team in each sport for Years 5 & 6
    1 team in each sport for Years 7 & 8 Grading roll over 400 2 teams in each sport for Years 5 & 6 2 teams in each sport for Years 7 & 8
    Please advise teacher only days or other days your school is not able to compete when you enter your teams, so that we are able to take this into account when we do the draws before the season starts.
  4. Schools should advise the Sports Director well in advance if it is known that a team will be unavailable on a particular day. This information will also be sought at the time entries are taken, and, when possible, incorporated into the draw.
  5. Supervision: Each team is required to be under the supervision of a teacher, or adult. It is the responsibility of the school to ensure supervision is adequate.
  6. Refereeing/Umpiring
    For netball all umpiring is dual control. This means that one umpire from each school umpires at the same time - one on each side of the court and umpiring their own games. Only one official score is to be taken (this saves having two different scores).
    For rugby, hockey and football it is suggested that each school takes responsibility for one half of the game.

  1. Uniform: Teams should be in a school sports uniform. This promotes pride in the school
  2. Cancellation: A decision will be made regarding cancellation by the Sports Director 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. All Cancellations will be posted to the website- www.primarysportscanterbury.org.nz . The SportCheck cancellation text messaging service is also available to those who have signed up.
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 or to change the draws. This is very 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. 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 have been put 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 send a message to the Sports Co-ordinator seeking a reason for the default, with a copy mailed to the Principal.
  2. Results: The results are to be entered by each team/school onto the website. www.primarysportscanterbury.org.nz enter weekly sports results. You will have been given a password to enable you to do this. Results will be recorded, full results published each week on the website, and successful teams awarded a certificate at the conclusion of the competition for the first three placings in a grade. Teams gaining full fair play points may also be awarded a certificate.
  3. Grading of players: Players may play up a grade, but cannot play down a grade.
Conclusion:
The credibility of the mid-week sporting competitions depends upon quality administration from both schools and the Sports Director’s office. 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.

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 netball, rugby and rugby league or a loss of less than 3 points for football and hockey and 0 for a loss of more than 5 or 3 points.
Fair 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 PLAY AWARDS
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 netball, rugby and rugby league or a loss of less than 3 points for football and hockey and 0 for a loss of more than 5 or 3 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.
Conclusion - 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 team’s 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 fair play points will not be deducted.
