Welcome to Sport at NIS

There are a number of reasons why sport is so important in the development of young children. Participating in a sport you like or are good at can help students build on their self-confidence by learning to trust their own abilities, talents, and judgment. By building your image in sports, you also improve your personal value, which directly impacts your self-esteem.

Here at Naenae Intermediate, we aim to help students develop the necessary skills to allow them to play, participate and have fun along the way. We provide opportunities in a range of both individual and team-based games throughout the school terms which can also lead to higher honours when they leave us. There are many sports you can play such as Chess, Badminton, Touch, Te Uri, Netball, Swimming, Water Polo, Rugby, Football...the list is only limited to your imagination! 

Sport is a great way to make lifelong friends and teach you a number of essential skills along the way. Come in and join a team.

In 2023 we are hoping that you join us in playing as many different sports as possible, you may even surprise yourself with how good you are!

Registrations and Payments

We follow a 'No pay - No play' policy. For students who have paid and don't get selected in the sport they want, a refund is available. 

This year we are also using a contactless payment system. So when you register for a sport and there is a payment required, you will be asked to pay directly through EFTPOS here at school or through Internet banking, referencing your child's surname and the sport you are paying for when making payment.  

Coaches / Managers

We are always on the lookout for coaches, managers too, so if you're wanting to help out in 2023...then, please let us know or by sending an email to:
