Sports Offered

Whether in the traditional activities of rugby, cricket, and rowing or in the more contemporary disciplines of cycling, and duathlon, Southland Boys’ get involved. The desire of students to represent their school is evident in the high levels of participation in teams and competitions.

Some of the more popular sports on offer are:


Southland Boys’ has a big focus on Athletics.  We hold both a fun Sports Day in which all students are encouraged to participate and then a Sports Day at Surrey Park where the more serious athletes compete.  Following on from this event, boys compete at a Southland level and then possibly Otago/Southland level.



Basketball competition is held on Fridays at Stadium Southland.
