Trials for 2011 Riverina Sports to be held in term 4 2010
Schools need to be aware that the following 2011 sports will have their Riverina trials held in 2010. This has been brought about due to the NSWCHS Carnivals for these sports being held in early term 1, 2011.
It is most important that schools realise that these trials will only be available to those students who will be attending school in 2011.
2011 Riverina School Sports Calendar
A copy of the DRAFT of the Riverina School Sports Association calendar for 2011 has been e-mailed to all schools this week. Feedback from schools that have concerns with regard to any dates should be forwarded to Jason Wilesmith (firstname.lastname@example.org), as soon as possible so that any clashes may be addressed.
2011 PSSA Knockout Entries
Entries for 2011 NSWPSSA Knockouts will go online in 2011. An announcement will appear in InPrincipal, week 1 this term.
Please note that the closing date for tennis, softball and cricket competitions will be Friday 26th November 2010. Entries for all other competitions will close on Friday 4th February 2011.
The online entry form and instructions for the submission of school entries can be accessed through the NSWPSSA website (www.sports.det.nsw.edu.au)
Riverina Awards & Certificates
Students who have represented the Riverina for a number of years (2 or more for primary, 3 or more for secondary) or have had multiple Riverina representations in one year (2 or more for primary, 3 or more for secondary) qualify for a Riverina Achievement Award. Applications for these may be found on the Riverina website. If in doubt please contact the sports association.
Please don’t leave this to the last minute, most schools present these awards at their school presentation night, as it takes us time to print and organise the delivery of the certificates to schools.
