Sport

Reigate College aims to give all students the opportunity to get involved in sport and physical activity, whether at a competitive level, 'Sports Activator' (see below),  or just for pleasure (see the College's Activities Programme).

Team Sports

College teams compete in the Surrey Sixth Form Colleges League in the following sports:

  • Mens' Football (3 teams)
  • Ladies' Football
  • Men's Rugby
  • Ladies' Rugby
  • Mixed Hockey
  • Netball (2 teams)
  • Basketball
  • Cricket

Students will be asked to register their interest in playing in a College sports team during enrolment, with trials taking place shortly afterwards. 

Squad selections are at the discretion of individial Sports Coaches who will notify students about any squad arrangements via College email.

Students who are selected for squads will be expected to sign a Sports Programme Contract, to ensure players are fully committed to taking part in all team training sessions and matches throughout the season. 

Most teams compete on Wednesday afternoons and students should bear this in mind when finalising their timetables. 

All students who compete for College teams are expected to attend the College's annual Sports Awards, where individual team prizes are awarded for Manager's Player of the year and Players' Player of the year.

Sports Activators

Reigate College offers all students the opportunity to be Sports Activators - see leaflet here.

Sports Activators are students who are enthusiastic about sport and physical activity, who want to encourage other students to get involved in sport and physical activity at College. They are usually students who are keen to develop their leadership skills in the area of sports participation, rather than being elite sportspeople.

The role of a Sports Activator includes: Promoting the positive values of sport throughout the College, Inspiring and motivating those around them to engage in sport and physical activity, Being the student voice for sport and physical activity within the College

Please email Piers Cox, Head of Sports Development at the College for further information - piers.cox@reigate.ac.uk
