Coaching & Managing
St Peter's is keen to have parents involved in coaching and managing teams. We currently have many St Peter's Old Boys and parents assisting in coaching and managing our teams. Due to teaching commitments, we cannot have all teams coached and managed by teachers at Zone Days and Sports Exchanges. One-off offers of assistance are appreciated for our Central Zone, Tournaments and Championships.
Please contact Mrs Cattermoul if you are interested in coaching and/or managing a team for a season and/or providing assistance at Zone Days, Tournaments and Championships.

Injury & Sickness
Medical conditions affecting sport should be notified to the Coach or Manager so appropriate precautions can be taken. Coaches or Managers are not to be expected to dispense medication.
If your son is sick or injured and cannot attend a practice or game, you need to contact the school and get a message to your Coach or Manager prior to the training or game commencing.
If your son is injured during practice or a game and has to go to hospital or an accident and emergency centre, please make contact with the school. It is very important that the school is made aware of any serious injury. You will be notified directly should an accident occur when you are not attending a game. There is a medical stand down period for concussion which must be made known to the coaching staff.
