Athletics

Athletics is a sport in which we have many events for, that progress to a higher level each time. There are clubs around Tauranga that many of our students belong to.  With regard to secondary school events, we take part in the the following:

School Athletics, Bay of Plenty Athletics (BOPSS), Waikato Athletics (WaiBOP), North Island Athletics (NISS) and National Athletics (NZSS).

The PE department at school runs the school athletics events.  The Sports Office team is in charge of all the events that follow on from school athletics.

All students who finish in the top 3 of their event at the school athletics are invited to attend the BOP Secondary Schools. Entry to events above this level is determined on placings.

For any more information please contact the Sports Office at sport@otc.school.nz
