Our Year 7 & 8 students have a wide range of sporting opportunities. The many sports they are able to participate in are detailed on the individual sports codes pages.

Other opportunities they have are:


Although Year 7 & 8’s can participate in many of the codes they are also involved in Eastern Zone Tournaments which are one day tournaments against other Intermediate age schools in the Eastern Zone region; these are held at various times throughout the year and according to the season timeframe of that particular code.

If there is already an established team for the code, the top team will travel and compete in the Eastern Zone tournament. However where there is no weekly Baradene team, trials will be held to select the team. We encourage all girls to trial for the various codes.


Our top Year 7 & 8 teams and individuals compete in the AIMs Games held annually in Tauranga in September. Information for the relevant competitors will be issued to them in July each year. In 2024 we participated in basketball, netball, hockey, football, gymsports, water polo, tennis, cross country, badminton, sport climbing, swimming and sailing.
