School Sport - Student Volunteer

Recognising Sports Leaders in Schools.  Nominate a candidate!

NZSSSC Census Student representation in school sport has been static.

Top 5 sports over the past year have been Football, Netball, Basketball, Volleyball and Rugby Union.

  • In 2021, 45% of Harbour Secondary School Students pulled on their school colours for sport.
  • Boys’ involvement stayed at 49% and girls’ involvement dropped 1% again in 2021, down from 42% in 2020 and 45% in 2019. This is an unfortunate trend that we are working with our schools on alongside Sport NZ and Aktive.
  • Schools in the Harbour Region offered students the opportunity to represent their school in 62 out of the 84 sports recognised in the census. There were also notable rises in sports such as Skateboarding and Tag which do not feature as recognised sports on the census.
  • Basketball climbed ahead to be the number 1 sport, followed by Football, Netball, Volleyball and Rugby Union. To see which sports round out the top 10 see our graphs below.
