Rugby

Our National Sport! Every year many of our teams win their various leagues and play in the quarter finals or semifinals of the “Valke”-league. Our first team has a yearly tour and our junior teams take part in a rugby academy. At Hoërskool Drie Riviere every player gets a place in a team … even the guys who has no experience playing rugby, get the opportunity to score a try. We don’t care how big you are, we care about how big your heart is.

Ons Nasionale sport! Elke jaar is daar spanne wat hulle onderskeie ligas wen en dus in die kwartfinale of semi-finaal van die Valke eindstryde deelneem. Die eerstespan gaan toer elke jaar en die junior spanne woon ook ’n afrigtingskliniek by. Hier is elke ou verseker van ’n plek in ’n span... selfs ouens wat vir die eerste keer in hulle lewe aan ’n rugbybal vat, smaak baie gou die vreugde van ’n drie te druk. Ons gee nie om hoe groot van postuur ’n ou is nie, ons kyk hoe groot is sy hart.

Cricket / Krieket

 

Cricket is a sport that develops the character of a player. Win or loose, it’s playing the game with dignity that counts. Our coaches are very motivated and excited about the cricket season. We coach boys’ and girls’ cricket and even though our female cricketers can bat a ball, they are still ladies. 

Krieket is een van die sportsoorte wat hom leen tot karakterbou. Of hy wen of verloor, die krieketspeler is altyd waardig. Die afrigters is gemotiveerd en sien uit na die seisoen. Ons bied krieket vir seuns en dogters aan en al moker die krieketdogters die bal met mag en mening, bly hulle te alle tye ware dames.

Tennis  

 

Die tennisspanne speel elke jaar liga. Ongelukkig het tennis nie ’n liggaam in die Vaaldriehoek wat provinsiale kleure toeken nie. Hulle geniet elke wedstryd en die entoesiasme is aansteeklik. Tydens die Julievakansie word daar ook ’n tenniskursus by die skool aangebied.

Our tennis teams participate in the Vaal Triangle schools’ league; unfortunately there is no institution in the Vaal that awards provincial colors. Still, we participate with enthusiasm and courage. During the July holidays the school hosts a proffesional tennis course that is open to all who are interested.
