It is fantastic to see Football up and running with 11 Teams competing across both Girls and Boys competitions. The season began with the College Day Invitational with our 1st XI Girls coming runners up and our Boys having one of their best results in over two years.
A big thank you goes out to parents, who have taken time out of their busy schedule, who are supporting our  programme behind the scenes, by offering to be managers, assisting with transportation and helping our coaches simply be coaches.
Finally, we are grateful for Unicol FC Football Club to support our programme with coaches. Unicol’s support has gone unnoticed and we look forward to developing this relationship under the Kaupapa of NZ Sports Balance Is Better and NZ Football Framework.

This year we have two girls teams. Premier and a B Team. The coach for Premier Team is Julia Falconer and for the B team Bridget Hill and Leyla Scutts. Our games are played on Saturdays at the Tamahere Reserve behind Tamahere Primary School. You do not have to travel out of Hamilton; they are always at Tamahere. The full draws are on the Waikato website for the season.  All uniforms are provided by the school.

There are a lot of opportunities with Lacrosse where you can be in Waikato Rep teams and also represent NZ in the U18 and U19 teams. Congratulations to Bridgett Hill on being selected into the NZ U18 Development Team.

If you are still interested in playing please go and see Mr Bradburn or Mr Fleming in the sports office Margaret Quintal in the LSC. Everyone is welcome to join.


It has been a positive start to the season for our Hillcrest Basketball teams.  As we implement a new programme, headed by coach Hemi Marshall, the teams are showing excellent progress as they improve their fundamental skills while learning how to implement tactics in the game.  Fantastic wins to the Senior Premier Girls, Senior Boys Development and Junior Boys Development teams were highlights from the opening week while both the Senior and Junior Premier Boys teams had losses as they become accustomed to each other while playing/competing amongst elite Waikato teams.

The vibe and ambition amongst the teams is strong and as they continue to develop we hope to see the results reflect the hard work each player is putting into their training.
