Sports Selection Policy, Sports Contract and Code of Conduct

Sports Selection Policy

St Andrew’s College has adopted a Sports Selection Policy that provides a basis for selection decisions across all College sporting codes.

The key points of the Sports Selection Policy are outlined below. All Coaches and Managers have been provided with the policy and if any other stakeholder has any further questions, please contact Director of Sport, Mark Lane, on

When selecting our players we endeavour to:

  • include clear objectives, assessment criteria and process;
  • run a fair and objective, organised process that gives equal opportunity to all;
  • communicate effectively with everyone involved;
  • gather information over a longer timeframe;
  • give special consideration to the deselection process and how it is handled;
  • incorporate weekly selection that includes off-field aspects;
  • have our Teacher in Charge of sport oversee the selection process at all levels ensuring the College policy is adhered to.
