Our Sports Co-ordinator is Miss Danielle Nicholson. Danielle is in charge of all sports outside of school and relies on parents and caregivers to coach and manage the many teams we have on offer. If you have any sports-related questions, please email Danielle at or pop into the Poaka Room (STEM) for a chat before and/or after school.

Information regarding sports registrations/entries and teams will be communicated via HERO and emails. Please check these for information. Check the Sports Overview for when these registrations will come through.

All spectators are welcome at all sports run events (e.g. Athletics Day) unless specified. We will endeavour to send out the schedule either the day before or the morning of the event. Please be aware that these events are run for the children to enjoy. Please encourage and support all participants.

See our 2023 Sports Overview for information about when sports registrations will take place. A reminder that these are approximate dates and they may be subject to change throughout the year depending on league information. Note: Flippa Ball teams will stay the same for Term 1-2 and re-registration for Term 3-4 as per the feedback at the end of 2022.

By registering your child in a sporting activity, you agree that your child will play for the duration of their intended season and will pay the registration fee immediately via Kindo. At Milford School, we encourage fair play and excellent sportsmanship so please ensure that you and your child are supportive of the whole team, coach, umpire/referee and manager. Please see our Milford School Code of Conduct for a specific reference. This will be attached to all entry forms.

Please note:

While every effort will be made to ensure all registered players make a team, there are instances where we have a limit to how many teams we can enter and how many players can make up a team for fair play time. You will be informed via email whether your child made a team and will be given further instructions. Please do not be disheartened if your child isn’t selected for a team; this is a fantastic opportunity to practice resilience and to make a plan to try again the following year or for an alternative sport.

If you have specific expertise in a sport or can support the administration side of things, please let Danielle know. Gymnastics requires plenty of parent support and will not go ahead unless we have enough volunteers due to the safety requirements required.
