Our Sports Department

Auckland Girls' Grammar School has an outstanding sporting reputation spread throughout a variety of individual and team sports. We aim to promote participation and provide the opportunity for all AGGS girls to gain a positive experience from sport. Through sport we encourage the development of discipline, commitment, positive attitudes, skill acquisition and taking responsibility as a contributing member of a team. All students are encouraged to participate in at least one sport throughout the school year.

Judy Revell is our Director of Sports and Louise Conway is our Sports and Active Recreation Coordinator.  Throughout the year, we are supported by an invaluable group of students, parents, coaches and staff who collectively make sport at AGGS what it is today.

Throughout the year there are many whole school events that the Sports Department are responsible for. The AGGS Athletics Day is one such event which includes all Yr 9 and Yr 10 students and is open to all other years. Each year this is a wonderful day of track and field with many competitors. The AGGS Swimming Sports and AGGS Cross Country are also events that come under the sports umbrella with the Cross Country again compulsory for Yr 9 and Yr 10 students. For details on this year's events please go to 'Whole School Events'. As all these events take place in Term 1 it's a busy start to the year for sports. Throughout the rest of the year the other events hosted by Sport include interclass competitions and Nationals Trips for various sporting codes throughout the country throughout the year.

AGGS reputation of producing elite athletes and high performance teams is something we pride ourselves on. In recent years we have won regional and/or national titles in a number of sports ranging from Athletics and Basketball to Rugby and Waka Ama.The sporting facilities within AGGS are constantly in use throughout the year, often there are so many teams training that surrounding facilities for specific sports are also needed to keep up with demand.

Whole School Events

At the start of the year, the Sports Department arranges a couple of fun whole school activities. The first being the Whole School Athletics Day event. We spend the day at a track and field venue, and compete in a range of sprints, jumps and throws events. For most of our students, this is a fun and social day and an opportunity for our new students to have fun outside of the classroom with their peers and teachers. For our competitive students, this is an opportunity to be noticed and possible selection to represent AGGS at the College Sport Auckland Central-West-East zones usually held early March. 

We also hold a Whole School Swimming Day event, and again we encourage all our students to participate and have fun along the way. This also provides an opportunity for selection to compete and represent AGGS at swimming zones and Auckland Champs meets. 
 
Further down the track, a cross country event is arranged in term 2 as a lead up for the Distance Running competitions.
