MAC offers an extensive range of sporting opportunities that help our students develop their fitness as well as social, leadership and collaboration skills. Our extensive green spaces, including an athletics track, cricket pitch, rugby field, two basketball courts, three netball courts, a futsal field, tennis courts, and a pump track, and our school’s proximity to Lake Wānaka and the mountains mean we can offer our students a diverse range of sporting opportunities, including rugby, netball, football, hockey, cricket, volleyball, futsal, rowing, mountain biking, triathlon, skiing and snowboarding, cross-country skiing and biathlon. Nearby Lismore Park also offers a frisbee golf course for us to use. In term 3, we run an eight-week cross-country skiing programme for students at the SnowFarm, the only place in New Zealand where you can learn to cross-country ski and become a biathlete.
