Friday 27 and Saturday 28 May 2022: We’re All in for Wynberg again this weekend as we welcome Rondebosch Boys’ High to our Astros and fields for a sporting derby of hockey, rugby, and soccer.
Fixtures and Results
All home matches will be live streamed by our Wynberg Media student broadcast team as per the schedules below.
Spectators: We are thrilled that you are with us today!
Please be reminded that you are watching a game – the result will not affect your well-being.
The players are schoolboy amateurs and the coaches and referees are volunteers.
They do what they do because they love the game – just as much as the rest of us.
The referees might not see everything – they do not have TMO assistance, but please don’t offer your insights.
We ask that you support our sport in the way that we expect our boys to play the game: with pride, passion, sportsmanship, and respect for the opposition and the referee.
Headmaster’s Advice to Parents:
Support your son and attend his matches, whatever side he’s in.
Always be there for him, especially in the ‘down times’.
By all means, set the bar for him – but always praise his achievements especially when he has tried hard to reach this bar.
Praise effort and commitment – much more than results.
Never criticise the coach as it will confuse the players. Don’t fall for the common sporting error of blaming the coach or referee.
Never over-emphasise winning as it will only lead to a fear of failure. One of the curses of schoolboy sport is an unbeaten season.
Do not relive your own sporting career (or lack of it!) through your son. This leads to frustration and disappointment on both sides.
Be a true sporting spectator. Let the referee handle the game and let your son make his own mistakes. He will learn more that way.
