Sport is an integral part of college life and forms an important link to the values of manaakitanga, ako, ngakau and aspire that the college promotes.
Our junior Sports Academies complement our Year 9 & 10 curriculum, blending fitness, wellbeing, integrity, conditioning and mentoring.
These Academies are run by Tu Umaga-Marshall and supported by ex-students such as Jacob Ellison and Lisa Bishop.
The college offers over 20 codes within the sports programme including athletics, futsal, badminton, volleyball, basketball, tennis, rugby, soccer, netball, hockey, squash, ki o rahi, waka ama, touch rugby, orienteering and outdoor education.
Mana College has a proud history of success at both regional and national level, and a high participation rate among the student body. A significant number of alumni have continued from Mana College to become successful sportsmen and women at amateur and professional levels, including All Blacks TJ Perenara, Rodney So'oialo and Tamati Ellison, Māori All Black, Jacob Ellison, Tall Black Jordan Ngatai, golfer Michael Campbell, Black Stick Lisa Bishop and basketballer Leone Patterson.
